ROCCAT and AMD announced a new global sponsorship, making AMD co-sponsor of Team ROCCAT, ROCCAT’s professional eSports arm which features both League of Legends and StarCraft II teams. Branding of streams and player outfits are included as part of the collaboration. The deal will also see ROCCAT and AMD co-operate during exhibitions and events in the future.
Mark Reed, Director of Marketing EMEA at AMD comments: “We were looking for a professional organization with the potential to win tournaments – and that’s what we found with Team ROCCAT. Our goal is to provide the best eSports action, which is just what every fan out there wants – and deserves.”
ROCCAT founder and CEO René Korte on the partnership: “We are delighted that AMD shares our enthusiasm for competitive gaming. We are looking forward to the growth of the team’s success together with our new sponsor.”
Team ROCCAT’s StarCraft II pro HyuN recently won WCS America Season 1 while the League of Legends Team is about to enter the second split of Riot’s LCS Europe Summer Season.
