Razer and Legacy Esports have announced that they have entered into a partnership, extending Team Razer’s reach into Oceanic esports and providing Legacy with Razer products. Legacy Esports is one of the most successful organisations in Oceania and together with Razer will give the team top-tier gear to use when they compete.
The partnership will furnish not just Legacy Esports players but also content creators with Razer’s esports peripherals. This includes mice, headsets and keyboards.
Legacy Esports will also be involved with field-testing Razer products and giving feedback on in-development gear.
David Tse, Global Esports Director at Razer said;
Team Razer has been expanding our footprint to support esports teams across the globe. Now we are proud to extend our support to the Oceanic region.
Legacy Esports has proven to be a top notch esports team within Australia. We are inspired by their grit and perserverence to elevate esports within their region.
Legacy Esports, known previously as Avant Garde Ascension, was Avant Garde’s League of Legends team. In 2014, they left Avant Garde and rebranded as Legacy Esports.
In 2017, the team expanded into Overwatch and were acquired by the Adelaide Crows. This marked the first foray by the AFL into esports. As of 2019, Legacy Esports has 30 players across four teams playing Fortnite, League of Legends, StarCraft II and Smash Bros.
Legacy Esports Head of Esports Tim Wendel said “We look forward to working with Razer and using their top-tier products to take Legacy Esports to the next level.”
We look forward to seeing what Razer and Legacy Esports can accomplish together.
