Collegiate event organiser Tespa has extended its partnership with gaming hardware company ASUS Republic of Gamers to last through 2020.
The third year of the partnership will see ASUS ROG return as Tespa’s dedicated PC, monitor, and router partner.
As a result of the alliance so far, Tespa and ROG have supplied gaming hardware to over 1,000 campus events across North America to support student and university gamers with laptops, desktops, monitors, routers, and other components. Together, thousands of dollars have been made available to students through scholarship funds and gaming equipment.
Gary Key, Senior Director of Marketing for ASUS ROG North America discussed the renewal in a release: “Tespa continues to offer outstanding support and resources that are vital to up-and-coming collegiate esports communities in North America and beyond. We are proud to support the next generation of student gamers who seek to demonstrate their competitive spirit and build toward their future through gaming.”
Collegiate members in Tespa’s network will receive further ASUS ROG reward opportunities alongside receiving access to care packages, online giveaways, and access to a discounted store page. Championship teams in Tespa’s competitive programmes will also earn a ‘Legendary ROG gaming setup’.
Josh Cella, Head of Global Partnerships at Activision Blizzard Esports added: “We are thrilled to continue working with ASUS Republic of Gamers for the third consecutive year. ASUS ROG have been a vital partner in supporting Tespa’s goal of cultivating student communities centered around gaming, and continually provide best-in-class support for our chapters and players.”
Esports Insider Says: Tespa and ASUS ROG now have years of partnership behind them. The additional benefits for members and chapters of the Tespa Network is a great opportunity for ROG to activate its brand seamlessly within the student gaming demographic.
