The National Association of Collegiate Esports has announced a partnership with Hussey Seating Company, making it the “Official Seating Solutions Supplier of NACE.”
Hussey Seating already boasts several dedicated esports projects around the world, including in Australia, and two in the United States in Texas and Florida.
Michael Brooks, Executive Director of NACE, commented in a release: “We are very pleased to be able to offer our members a partner like Hussey Seating. Their longevity in the business combined with their solution development expertise and design services will be a great benefit to our members as educational institutions continue to develop and adapt facilities dedicated to esports.”
Officially formed in 2016, NACE currently has over 170 member schools and boasts over 5,000 student athletes. While it provides a foundation for high-level competition in collegiate esports, it also provides guidance to those wishing to start varsity programming on their campuses.
Gary Merrill, President and CEO of Hussey Seating Company commented in a release: “We’re extremely proud to partner with a leading esports organisation like NACE. Partnering with them will allow us an even deeper connection with the growing collegiate esports community.
“As esports developed into a spectator seating sport we worked alongside key architectural partners to design a product mix for flexible spaces which accommodate multiple configurations and recover floor space to accommodate either the progression of competition or multiple events.”
Esports Insider Says: Hussey Seating is a major company and for it to get more involved in esports could yield interesting results. NACE will be looking to continually expand and grabbing more household partnerships should attract further interest from more colleges.
