According to the press release shared with us, Team Envy’s headquarters will be outfitted with Predator gaming laptops, desktops and monitors, and both companies will collaborate on a video series and other content. Additionally, Envy’s PUBG and CS:GO teams will have the Predator logo on their jerseys.
“The Predator gaming line is designed to give players a competitive edge over opponents. With premium speed and graphics at their fingertips, Team Envy’s players will have industry-leading systems to best support their expert training,” said Richard Black, Acer’s vice president of marketing. “Sharing a mutual passion for esports and innovation, Team Envy is an ideal partner for Acer. As we push the boundaries of what’s possible with technology, Team Envy strives to move the needle in what can be achieved in gameplay. We’re excited to join forces to bring competitive esports and training to new levels in performance and entertainment.”
This is notably the first team sponsorship in the United States for Acer. The company has previously sponsored major esports events, including the Legends Championship Series and CS:GO Intel Extreme Masters tournaments.
“Acer’s early support of the competitive esports scene and Envy’s long success as a professional gaming organization make a perfect match,” said Envy Gaming President and COO Geoff Moore. “We’re excited to kick off a partnership with Acer at a time where our Envy PUBG team just finished top three in the first stage of their season and our business is firing on all cylinders.”
Envy Gaming competes, streams and produces content across multiple titles including Overwatch, Call of Duty, CS:GO, PUBG, Paladins, Rocket League, Street Fighter V, FIFA and Fortnite.
