Austrian esports organisation Wave Esports has announced a commercial partnership with peripherals manufacturer Logitech.
As a result of the deal, Logitech becomes the organisation’s first partner, with Wave currently fielding rosters in VALORANT, Brawl Stars, and Fortnite.
Throughout 2021, Logitech will assist Wave Esports in organising bootcamps for its players and teams, alongside other content creation projects. The manufacturer will also provide players with a range of its peripherals.
Ivaelo Bozhilov, CFO and Head of Partnerships at Wave Esports, commented on the partnership in a release: “For us at Wave, it was clear from the start that we would like to partner up with a renowned company such as Logitech. Managing to achieve this goal at such an early stage, especially as our first partner, is incredible.
“Our philosophies’ overlaps made it especially easy to communicate with them and identify common goals and objectives. We both believe that passion and quality are the main drivers of success. We at Wave aim to exemplify this through every decision we make.
“We are very excited to build a long-lasting partnership with Logitech, and we are looking forward to engaging with new companies who can accompany us both on this journey and help us reach our full potential.”
Founded in 2019, Wave Esports has quickly established itself as one of the most prominent organisations in the region, fielding the highest-ranked Fortnite and VALORANT rosters in Germany and Europe respectively.
Matthias Trumpfheller, Esports and Alliance Manager DACH at Logitech, also spoke on the deal: “Wave Esports has a nose for building successful rosters and attracting great talent. The performances of the Valorant and Fortnite teams in particular prove that Wave Esports made its mark in the scene and is here to stay.
“The leadership has a great vision and mindset that we at Logitech G share. We are happy to support Wave Esports and be part of their journey to the top.”
Esports Insider says: Partnerships of this nature are nothing out of the ordinary but for Wave Esports, securing Logitech as its first partner is certainly impressive given its short existence. As 2021 gets underway, expect more partners to join its roster in the coming months.
