EPICENTER has partnered with gaming hardware brand ASUS Republic of Gamers for its Counter-Strike: Global offensive event.
The deal will see the teams use ASUS ROG products and allow fans to be able to test out products in the venue.
The analytics team at the event will be provided with laptops from the TOG range of ROG products.
Kirill Pogorelov, Head of PR at ASUS commented on the partnership in a release: “We’re excited about this new partnership with EPICENTER. Supporting gaming and esports events is our long-standing tradition. We will supply the participants of the event with the best PCs and monitors as a part of our partnership with Epic Esports Events.”
The group stage for the $500,000 (£374,197) tournament takes place over December 17th-19thm with the finals following on December 21st-22nd. The event is being hosted at the Crocus Expo exhibition centre in Moscow.
Sergey Barkhudarya, Commercial Director at ESforce Holding added: “It would be impossible to host events of such scale as EPICENTER without the cutting-edge hardware. We welcome ASUS as our partners and we’re ready to establish a new connection channel with the audience.”
Esports Insider says: It’s good to see ASUS ROG return after activating at EPICENTER’s CS:GO event in 2018, it must see the event as a worthwhile marketing opportunity. While the activations sound incredibly standard once again, it should be ample promotion for the hardware company.
