The agreement sees Secretlab continue to bolster its roster of partners. Alongside Team Spirit, the likes of Evil Geniuses, Team Liquid, OG, G2 Esports, Invictus Gaming, ONE Esports and T1 have all teamed up with the gaming chair brand.
Ian Ang, Co-Founder and CEO of Secretlab, spoke on the announcement in a release: “Following Team Spirit’s journey to victory has made The International 10 one of the most exciting tournaments I’ve ever watched. From their start in the lower bracket to winning the largest prize pool in esports history after a nerve-wracking 5-game final, they’ve truly proven to be the ultimate dark horse using all the right tactics this season.
“As the 2022 Dota Pro Circuit picks up speed once again, we hope to bring our experience in supporting the world’s top esports teams to help equip Team Spirit with the best for their daily training.”
Team Spirit’s Dota 2 roster became the winner of last year’s The International 10, securing more than $18m (~£13m) in prize money.
Nikita Chukalin, CEO of Team Spirit, commented: “We always think about the comfort of our players. That’s why we are excited to start our partnership with Secretlab, one of the best chair manufacturers in business.
“We’re looking forward to our cooperation, the future looks bright!”.
Esports Insider says: Secretlab has previously secured deals with some of the most prominent esports organisations at the current scene, so adding Dota 2’s world championship winners doesn’t come as a surprise. It will be interesting to see if Secretlabs continues to expand its portfolio in 2022 and which organisations will become the latest addition to its roster.
