MSI, known as a world leader in gaming hardware and computing solutions, have entered a two year partnership with UCLA Esports. The University of California, Los Angeles, is one of the most recognizable collegiate brands, to be outfitted with MSI’s esports-grade computers and monitors for training and tournaments with the partnership.
“We’re proud to extend our support to the UCLA Esports program and their athletes.”
“We were inspired by all the team has accomplished over the past few years, and knew we wanted to be a part of their journey by providing innovative hardware and technology to propel its athletes to continued success.”
Sam Chern, Corporate Marketing VP at MSI
UCLA Esports is a fast growing team playing titles like League of Legends, Overwatch, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Rocket League and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Its teams have placed highly in competitions in recent years, which include Collegiate Overwatch and the Hearthstone Collegiate Championship, producing talent capable of reaching top level play in their titles. See Dillon LeDuc, who recently achieved Rank 1 on the North American Hearthstone ladder, and additionally qualified for the Hearthstone Masters Tour in Los Angeles on 20 to 22 March.
