Hong-Kong-based esports organisation Talon Esports has announced a partnership with gaming peripheral company SteelSeries.
As a result of the deal, SteelSeries will become the official gaming peripherals partner of the organisation’s League of Legends team.
The deal will see SteelSeries provide PSG Talon with a range of peripherals ranging from headsets to computer mice. Moreover, players will take part in product testing for the company.
PSG Talon is a League of Legends team formed through a joint partnership between Talon Esports, and PSG Esports — the esports arm of the French football club. PSG Talon competes in the Pacific Championship Series, a top-flight League of Legends league for Southeast Asia.
Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon Esports, spoke on the partnership: “We have long been fans of SteelSeries products and when it comes to giving our players a competitive edge in League of Legends, we have full confidence that we will be able to achieve even greater things together this year. SteelSeries has a rich history of working with pros and is a welcome partner to us.”
SteelSeries becomes the seventh partner of PSG Esports. It joins the likes of streaming platform Twitch and gaming chair manufacturer noblechairs as partners of the team.
Dickson Lee, Vice President and General Manager of SteelSeries APAC, also commented: “We are very excited to welcome the PSG Talon Team to the SteelSeries family. The kickoff of the 2022 League of Legends season is a tremendous opportunity for us to help empower the team to reach their full potential and achieve even greater success.”
Esports Insider says: Peripherals partnerships are nothing out of the ordinary. For SteelSeries, securing an exclusive deal with PSG Talon is another impressive addition to its ever-expanding portfolio. Other than supplying players with equipment, it will be interesting to see how the two parties stand out from the crowd through their activations.
