The Austrian based organization Wave Esports has entered into a commercial partnership with the computer peripherals manufacturer Logitech. Logitech is an industry leader for gaming gear for esports athletes due to their philosophy, which emphasizes innovation. Wave Esports competes at the highest level in Fortnite and Valorant and has professional players between the ages of 15-23 from all over Europe, focusing on the German-speaking region.
Besides the monetary sponsorship, Logitech will assist Wave Esports with bootcamps and other content based projects in the upcoming year. Furthermore, they will supply their players with high-end gaming gear, which will enhance their performance in international tournaments.
Wave Esports will deliver content projects, branding opportunities, and promotions for new products to Logitech as part of this partnership. The majority of Wave Esports’ players have already been using Logitech gear, most notably JannisZ, who won USD 120,000.00 from the FNCS Championship in May 2020 with the G PRO Wireless mouse.
“For us at Wave, it was clear from the start that we would like to partner up with a renowned company such as Logitech. Managing to achieve this goal at such an early stage, especially as our first partner, is incredible. Our philosophies’ overlaps made it especially easy to communicate with them and identify common goals and objectives. We both believe that passion and quality are the main drivers of success. We at Wave aim to exemplify this through every decision we make. We are very excited to build a long-lasting partnership with Logitech, and we are looking forward to engaging with new companies who can accompany us both on this journey and help us reach our full potential.” – Ivaelo Bozhilov, CFO and Head of Partnerships at Wave Esports.
“Wave Esports has a nose for building successful rosters and attracting great talent. The performances of the Valorant and Fortnite teams in particular prove that Wave Esports made its mark in the scene and is here to stay. The leadership has a great vision and mindset that we at Logitech G share. We are happy to support Wave Esports and be part of their journey to the top.”
– Matthias Trumpfheller, Esports and Alliance Manager DACH at Logitech.
