UK-based organisation Vexed Gaming has released a one-off collection with sportswear brand Kappa.
The parties announced a partnership in August, which included Kappa providing apparel for Vexed Gaming’s players.

Mark Weller, Chief Gaming Officer at Vexed Gaming discussed the move in a release: “We are tremendously excited to bring these limited-edition shirts to our fans. Kappa is known for its stylish and iconic designs across all the sports it works with and esports is no exception.

Joe Pilato, Sports Marketing Executive at Kappa UK also commented on the collection: “We’re proud to be working with Vexed Gaming to bring the Kappa name into the exciting world of esports. It’s going to be an amazing journey and we are delighted to mark our official entry into esports with this limited-edition range of casual wear, which we’re sure fans of the team will love.”
The collection is the first collaborative release from both Vexed Gaming and Kappa. At the time of writing, there’s no information as to when the next collection will be available – if another collection is planned at all.
Esports Insider says: It’s good to see Kappa get involved in esports in such a way, going through one of the more prominent organisations in the UK. Seeing the deal involve more than apparel being provided is a good sign, and we’re interested to see what else the two parties have planned for the future.
