North American mobile esports organisation Tribe Gaming has announced a partnership with technology corporation Samsung Electronics America

As a result, the organisation will use Samsung’s Galaxy devices throughout the duration of the partnership. 

Alongside utilising Samsung phones, Samsung Galaxy branding will also be present on Tribe Gaming’s esports jerseys. 

In addition, both Samsung and Tribe will collaborate on a range of activations such as exclusive content and events for the organisation’s fans. Samsung joins the likes of car manufacturer Ford and peripherals brand Razer as a partner of the mobile esports organisation. 

Currently, Tribe Gaming has competitive rosters across Call of Duty: Mobile, Brawl Starts, Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. Earlier this month the organisation qualified for the Call of Duty Mobile World Championship 2022.

Samsung has been a player within the esports scene for a while, however, its involvement in the mobile scene has been sparse. Earlier this year the electronics company teamed up with ONE Esports to develop a mobile app for Samsung devices across Southeast Asia. Moreover, the company has previously teamed up with OKA Gaming and Team Queso.

Tribe’s deal with Samsung follows on from its partnership with Heroes of Mavia, a play-to-earn MMO strategy crypto game developed by Skrice Studios, in March this year. 

Tribe Gaming Founder Patrick ‘Chief Pat’ Carney, commented: “Samsung has been a relentless pioneer in mobile, which perfectly aligns with our mission at Tribe Gaming.

“This historical partnership with Samsung is a milestone moment for our company, and a true testament to what we’ve worked so hard to build over the last half-decade in mobile gaming.”
