As eSports continues its astronomical rise, there are more and more marriages of powerful entities. US, Korea, and China gaming markets walk the aisle in one of the latest deals, a partnership between the championship-winning KSV eSports and gaming lifestyle brand Razer.

The newly announced deal is a two-year sponsorship that fits all of KSV eSports teams, including Seoul Dynasty of Overwatch League, with Team Razer gear including competition-quality mice, keyboards, headsets, and surfaces.

“Helping ambitious organizations and players reach the next level has been a matter of the heart for Razer since the very early days of professional esports,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, in the press release for the announcement. “The passion and dedication to building a long-term, winning organization of players makes a two-year deal with KSV eSports and Seoul Dynasty an easy decision.”

KSV eSports has a 2017 League of Legends World Championship and 2017 Heroes of the Storm BlizzCon Championship under its belt and current and future teams are a part of the sponsorship deal. This includes League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds rosters.

"KSV eSports teams and players are among the most talented and professional the industry has to offer,” said Kevin Chou, CEO and co-founder of KSV eSports. “Partnering with Razer ensures our athletes have access to the highest-quality peripherals to continue the organization’s success for now and into the future.”
