Ubisoft and Acer have announced that Predator is the official PC and monitor sponsor for Rainbow Six Pro League Season X. Predator will also sponsor the Majors. Acer has a longstanding commitment to esports and the Predator brand stands as one of the strongest in the industry. Acer’s Predator League has run successfully for two years with the second year adding PUBG and taking place in Bangkok, Thailand.
Darren Simmons, Acer’s Oceanic Managing Director, said of the sponsorship;
We’re seeing continued rapid growth within the esports scene and the quality of play that we’re witnessing year-on-year continues to blow us away.
Acer is a putting its full support behind esports on a global level and we plan to continue equipping the worlds’ best players with our gaming hardware.
Whilst we’re supporting esports at the highest levels, we’re also working with grass-roots here in Australia via META High School Esports to build the ecosystem from the ground up. Players can develop skills such as in-game strategy, critical thinking and communication, whilst getting inspired to pursue careers in STEM through games.
We want to see Australia become a force in global esports and, as with any sport, this requires investment in youth development.
