French organisation Team Vitality has established a multi-year partnership with computer peripherals company CORSAIR.
The deal will see CORSAIR equip the organisation’s players with keyboards, headsets, mice, and other products.
Team Vitality will collaborate with its new partner to create “specially engineered” peripherals with competitive play in mind, according to a release.
Nicolas Maurer, CEO of Team Vitality commented in a release: “This collaboration with the powerhouse CORSAIR marks another milestone for Team Vitality. Being able to sign a multi-year agreement with such an esteemed brand proves once again the growth of our sector. As esports viewership continues to rise, we are proud to be amongst the leaders pushing in this direction.
“We’ve been glad to work professionally with CORSAIR on an ambitious project for both parties, built around a complete and multi-faceted activation plan. It was also important for us to be associated with a respected and reputable brand like CORSAIR to give our professional players the best performance possible, thanks to their very high-quality products.”
CORSAIR joins adidas, Renault, Orange, AFFLELOU Group, Red Bull, and Quersus on Team Vitality’s list of partners. The peripheral brand is also partnered with the likes of beastcoast, FC Schalke 04 Esports, Team Envy, Method, BIG, Team Secret, and x-kom AGO.
Lauren Premo, Director of Gaming Marketing at CORSAIR added: “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the biggest name in French esports. Team Vitality has consistently demonstrated its championship pedigree with major victories in the world’s most spectated games, such as CS:GO, and we’re ready to cheer them on as they win even more using CORSAIR gear.”
Esports Insider says: Peripheral partnerships aren’t anything new but we’ll have to see what else comes of this particular deal, especially with it spanning across multiple years, in the coming months. Team Vitality has been on a roll in recent months and this is another positive sign for the organisation.
