British organisation Enclave Gaming has announced a partnership with sportswear supplier Akuma.
The deal will last throughout 2020 and includes a range of teamwear launched for the start of this year’s UK League Championship (UKLC). The line includes a jersey, jumper, and joggers.
Enclave Gaming is one of eight organisations that competes in the UKLC’s 2020 Spring Split, the premier League of Legends tournament in the UK and Ireland, which is being run by event organiser DreamHack after previous operator LVP withdrew from the region.
Aaron Peskett, Content & Partnerships Director at Enclave Gaming, said of the partnership: “Akuma has been great to work with so far, providing valuable expertise when it comes to designing teamwear items and effortlessly turning our ideas into reality.
“We chose to look for a partnership with Akuma based on a number of factors including product quality and design capability, but the factor that stands out the most is that every aspect of their business from design to production are right here in the UK. I feel confident relying on Akuma to meet our needs when it comes to production speed and quality, as they have control of the entire process in-house.”
Felix Heath, Account Manager at Akuma, also commented on the deal: “We at Akuma recognise esports is a growing market where individuals display their skills and creativity. Akuma has always been thought leaders in creativity and expression since its inception, so it was only right we partner up with Enclave.
“Enclave is a brilliant company that has a different take on the esports market, they look to set themselves apart from the rest and Akuma has the same outlook. We look forward to the partnership on this new venture.”
Esports Insider says: Another all-UK partnership (following on from Fnatic’s last week) marks continued growth and stability for the local ecosystem. Enclave’s fresh new look reflects well on their prospects of growth alongside the region in 2020, and we wish them all the best with their new partnership.
