Asian esports organisation Talon Esports has announced a partnership with gaming chair manufacturer Secretlab.
The deal will see the manufacturer become the Official Chair Partner of the Talon Esports VALORANT roster currently competing in the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) Pacific League.
In addition to supporting Talon Esports’ VALORANT roster, the two parties will collaborate to produce a content series throughout the duration of the 2023 VCT season. The first part of the series will focus on the team’s top-eight finish at the recent LOCK//IN tournament that took place in São Paulo, Brazil.
The deal marks a change in seating partner for the organisation. In 2020, Talon Esports joined forces with Recaro to provide its players and staff with its range of gaming chairs before getting comfortable with Secretlab this month.
Aside from VALORANT, Talon Esports competes in a variety of esports titles that includes League of Legends through a collaboration with Paris Saint-Germain, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Street Fighter V.
For Secretlab, the partnership is another addition to its extensive portfolio. Over the last 12 months, the manufacturer has partnered with the likes of Team Vitality, Echo Esports, and the Esports Awards.
Beatrice Wee, Senior Manager of Global Partnerships at Secretlab, spoke on the deal: “Talon has been a strong contender in the region across numerous esports titles, and are well-poised to continue growing.
“Through this partnership, we hope to set them up for greater success, equipping them with our pro-grade chairs for peak performance and ergonomics.”
