Netherlands-based FIFA academy Team Gullit has announced a partnership with HP’s gaming brand OMEN.
The deal will see the brand become the exclusive PC partner of Team Gullit, with the academy using OMEN PCs at its new headquarters.
The headquarters will give players the opportunity to compete at the facility in addition to creating content for their own social media channels, as well as for the academy. Since launching in 2018, the academy has amassed 150,000 followers across its channels.
2022 sees Team Gullit continue to consolidate its position as one of the largest FIFA academies in the world. In July, it secured a deal with MLS football club Atlanta United that will see the academy develop the club’s roster of FIFA players.
In addition, OMEN continues to bolster its position within the esports sector. The brand extended its partnership with BIG for a fifth consecutive year and has expanded its deal with Belong Gaming Arenas. OMEN becomes the seventh partner of Team Gullit. It joins the likes of electronics manufacturer Samsung, glasses company SEIKO Vision and Robey Sportswear.
Corné Dubelaar, Founder of Team Gullit, spoke on the deal: ‘’For us, the timing of the collaboration is ideal. We will be officially opening our new Team Gullit HQ soon; a unique place that meets all needs of the players and us.
“OMEN desktops not only make the room look incredible, they also provide us with the power we need to take our content game to the next level from the launch of FIFA 23.’’
