Hong Kong-based organisation Talon Esports has announced a partnership with GIGABYTE-powered gaming brand AORUS.
As a result, AORUS has been named as the Display and PC partner for PSG Talon, the organisation’s League of Legends team currently competing in the Pacific Championship Series (PCS).
The partnership will see the gaming brand provide PSG Talon with PCs and monitors in Hong Kong, throughout 2021.
Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon Esports, commented: “We are extremely excited to team up with AORUS here in Hong Kong. Having the best possible equipment will ensure that we continue our winning ways in 2021.”
AORUS joins the likes of seating manufacturer Recaro and streaming platform Twitch as partners of PSG Talon.
Angela Liu, APAC Sales Director of GIGABYTE, added: “With the partnership with Talon Esports, we will definitely achieve incredible work in creating content and driving positive impact in the Hong Kong gaming community. Team Up. Fight On!”
In June 2020, Talon Esports partnered with PSG Esports to form PSG Talon. Since then, the League of Legends team has finished second in the PCS 2020 Summer Playoffs and has represented Asia-Pacific at the 2020 World Championships.
Talon has also secured a range of partnerships outside of League of Legends, with the likes of telecom operator DTAC, fast-food chain KFC, and streetwear brand Carnival striking deals with its Arena of Valor team in 2021.
Esports Insider says: This partnership will undoubtedly benefit both entities. Not only has PSG Talon acquired another commercial partner to its portfolio, but AORUS brand will gain more exposure throughout the PCS and also at international competitions, should the team qualify for them.
