Australian esports organisation Legacy Esports has entered a partnership with gaming peripherals company Razer.
Legacy Esports’ players and content creators will have access to Razer’s gaming peripherals, including mice, headsets and keyboards.
The deal will also see Legacy Esports teams invited to field-test and provide feedback for Razer’s gaming equipment that are currently in development. The Australian organisation joins the likes of Alliance, Evil Geniuses, Team Queso, mousesports, and Copenhagen Flames as a partner of Razer.
Tim Wendel, Head of Esports at Legacy Esports, expressed his thoughts about the year ahead: “We look forward to working with Razer and using their top-tier products to take Legacy Esports to the next level. 2020 is shaping up to be another massive year for us, with exciting new players and innovative plans which we hope will take us to the pinnacle of the OCE (Oceanic Pro League) and beyond. I have no doubt that our partnership with Razer will be a key part of this next era of success for our teams.”
The benefits of the partnership are extended not only to the organisation’s flagship League of Legends squad but also its Overwatch, Rocket League, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive rosters.
David Tse, Global Esports Director at Razer, is similarly excited about the partnership: “Team Razer has been expanding our footprint to support esports teams across the globe. Legacy Esports has proven to be a top-notch esports team within Australia. We are inspired by their grit and perseverance to elevate esports within their region.”
Esports Insider says: A deal with a huge peripherals company like Razer is always a boon for organisations in the Oceanic region. As a League-first organisation, Riot Games’ recent changes to the operation of the OPL means that partnership development and building multiple revenue streams is more important than ever.
