Today, Logitech G announced an expansion of its global esports program by partnering with G2 Esports, one of the most prominent and successful Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and League of Legends (LoL) clubs in the world. Founded only three years ago, G2 already holds 78 awards across its 11 teams, including historic four-time consecutive wins as European LoL Champions. The partnership includes sponsorship, technology and new product research to continue Logitech G’s leadership in developing professional grade gaming peripherals for top esports athletes around the world.
G2 cites Logitech G’s dedication to gamers, quality products and continuous innovation as reasons it chose Logitech G as its preferred PC peripheral partner, from the G2 site:
G2 Esports is known for great ambition, hard work and pushing our limits. We are relentless and resilient. No matter which game, we want nothing more than to be the very best. If that’s not being serious, we don’t know what is. That is why welcoming Logitech G as our global partner is a great honour for us. We think we are a great match because we share the same work ethic and philosophy.
Every serious player knows that his or her peripherals are an important part of success when practicing and playing competitively at the highest level. In addition to being one of the most preferred gamers’ choices on the market, Logitech G shares our passion for gaming and top-level performance. We are delighted that Logitech G stands for profound understanding of player needs, as well as innovation and progress. We are honoured and grateful that Logitech acknowledges our hunger for success and is lending a hand to our continued world domination with their cutting-edge technology.
“Our teams have been using, and winning, with Logitech G products for years,” said Carlos ‘ocelote’ Rodriguez, CEO of G2 Esports. “We’re excited about our partnership with Logitech because both organizations share a deep passion for the industry, a dedication to hard work and a commitment to winning.”
We are particularly excited to participate in tournaments using the new Logitech G wireless products and saying goodbye to corded products over time, changing the image of the player or manager, who after the victory has to go back to the desk and wrap the cords. We’d rather use our time for lifting trophies and taking photos with the fans
Most recently, G2 CS:GO player NBK won DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017 using a Logitech G900 wireless gaming mouse, further illustrating the competition-grade esports performance found with Logitech G wireless products.
“G2 is one of the most exciting teams in esports, and we love the fact that their pros have been using our wireless gear in competition. We’re excited about this partnership and look forward to leveraging their expertise to help us develop even more gaming gear for pros,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Gaming at Logitech.
As a proud supporter of the global esports community for over 20 years, Logitech G sponsors players and teams that share a deep respect for the games industry and a passion for playing at the highest level. G2 Esports joins a growing roster of elite Logitech G esports teams including TSM, Cloud9, NRG and many more. Most recently, the Logitech G South Korean Overwatch team won its second consecutive Overwatch World Cup at Blizzcon 2017.
G2 will compete at Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Oakland at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., November 18-19, 2017.
