Legacy Esports and electronics brand Samsung have renewed their partnership for 2020, with both organizations looking to ramp up support for Australian esports in the new decade.
The partnership between the Australian team and Samsung is set to “help grow and develop the team’s competitive and grass-roots community gaming programs.”
“As we enter a new decade, we’ll see esports continue to grow in Australia capturing the attention of more gamers and viewers,” said Phil Gaut, Director of Display and Memory Solutions at Samsung.
“Our commitment to Legacy Esports is to continue supporting their growth and help them make the unachievable possible.”
This includes support to their professional players, including new equipment and bootcamping opportunities, like the League of Legends bootcamp with Gen.G in 2019.
“We look forward to the future as we move into the third year of our partnership with Samsung and are excited about what we can continue to achieve together,” said Tim Wendel, Head of Esports at Legacy Esports.
“The support we have received from Samsung has been fundamental to the development of our athletes and we can’t wait to explore new ways to collaborate.”
Legacy Esports, who are owned by AFL team Adelaide Football Club, have a League of Legends team as well as players in Fortnite, StarCraft II, and Hearthstone.
Their League team sits in second on the OPL ladder with a 7-1 record, while StarCraft II pro Sean “Probe” Kempen is currently competing at IEM Katowice 2020.
