Australian organisation Legacy Esports has renewed its partnership with Samsung Electronics Australia for a third year.
In the past two years, Samsung provided peripherals to Legacy Esports’ players and supported the organisation’s competitive and grassroots esports programs.
Samsung Electronics Australia has maintained its spot on Legacy Esports’ rosters of partners alongside Optus, Razer, Fullhammer, and Harvey Norman.
Phil Gaut, Director of Display and Memory Solutions at Samsung Electronics Australia, commented on the renewal in a release: “As we enter a new decade, we’ll see esports continue to grow in Australia capturing the attention of more gamers and viewers, and our commitment to Legacy Esports is to continue supporting their growth and help them make the unachievable possible. Our renewed partnership with Legacy Esports is a step further in that direction, fueled by their unwavering passion for gaming and eagerness to represent Australia.”
In addition to partnering with Razer and Fullhammer already this year, Legacy Esports has also brought in new staff members. Jensen Goh will be the head coach of its League of Legends team, while Kori “Vandie” Hallows has been bought on to lead the organisation’s expansion into live streaming.
Tim Wendel, Head of Esports at Legacy Esports, added: “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. 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.”
Esports Insider says: Given the success of the last two years, it makes sense for both parties to continue their partnership into 2020. It’s great to see Australia’s esports scene continue to receive support from such a big brand in Samsung.
