ASTRO has been a long-time supporter of eSports, hardcore gaming, and having fun. Over the years we’ve worked closely with professional teams to develop premium audio systems for dedicated pros and at-home gamers alike. We are proud to announce a dramatic expansion of our eSports division, becoming the official sponsor of today’s most dominant pro gaming teams: Evil Geniuses, Team SoloMid, OpTic Gaming, and EnVyUs.
As an official sponsor of each team, we will provide logistical and travel support for all major tournaments held nationwide. We’ll be providing tournament entry fees, and of course, ensuring our teams have the latest Headsets, MixAmps, and ASTRO gear. This weekend, March 15-17, our teams will be competing alongside more than 1,000 other superstars from around the world at the Major League Gaming Winter Championship in Dallas, Texas. Players and teams will compete in a variety of games, including Call of Duty®: Black Ops II™, League of Legends™ and Starcraft® II: Heart of the Swarm™ for $170,000 in prizes.
With our new sponsorship of Evil Geniuses, Team SoloMid, OpTic Gaming and EnVyUs, we plan to push the limits, taking pro gaming to the next level. As the industry evolves, we’ll work closely with our teams to drive research and development into the next generation of ASTRO Gaming products.
“We’re very happy to have been welcomed into the ASTRO portfolio of sponsored teams. We’ve always admired ASTRO’s attention to detail and approach to eSports, and we expect this partnership to help Evil Geniuses in a variety of different ways.” – Alexander Garfield, CEO of Evil Geniuses.
