Alpine Esports, the esports branch of French automotive marque Alpine, has named hardware manufacturer CORSAIR as its official peripherals supplier.
As part of the deal, CORSAIR peripherals — including mice, keyboards and headsets — will be available for all of Alpine Esports’ drivers and ambassadors.
In addition, for the upcoming Alpine Esports Series, five HS80 headsets will be up for grabs for the top-performing drivers. Now in its third year, the sim racing championship will kick off on April 27th and will be broadcast on Binance Live, as well as the Alpine YouTube and Twitch channels.
Alongside Binance as its Series sponsor, Alpine Esports recently announced new partnerships with smart contract blockchain platform QAN (Official Blockchain Partner), VR/XR tech company Varjo, eye-tracking tech brand Tobii, and mobile racing game developer The Digital Factory, among others.
The winner of the Alpine Esports Series will walk out with $25,000 (⁓£20,000) worth of Alpine Fan Tokens; $3,000 (⁓£2,400) worth of $QANX tokens; and an Alpine A110 GT4 driving and coaching experience. Similar prizes will be distributed to the top 10 finalists, with the series boasting a total prize pool of $100,000 (⁓£80,200) worth of Alpine Fan Tokens on Binance.
In recent months, Alpine Esports has expanded its roster of partners through deals with technology company BenQ and smart lighting brand Philips Hue. Earlier this year, Alpine Esports also struck a deal with German gaming furniture manufacturer ADEPT, which has been named the official chair of the branch.
On the other hand, CORSAIR boasts active partnerships with European esports organisations Berlin International Gaming (BIG) and Team Secret. As their official sponsor, the brand’s logo outfits all their teams’ competitive jerseys.
