Happy Anniversary! Before the ELEAGUE major, we keep up the stream of great news for SK Gaming. But this is a special one - HyperX and SK Gaming renew their partnership and are going into the 10th year together, making this one of the longest lasting partnerships in eSports.
Ask anyone - staff, management or players, everyone at SK Gaming is really excited to extend the cooperation with HyperX as we move into the year 2017. "It is the blueprint of a mutually beneficial partnership. HyperX provides our players with memory and peripherals of the highest quality and over the years we gave valuable input for the development of the HyperX eSports products", says SK Gaming's Managing Director Alexander Müller.
It all started in 2007 when SK Gaming first partnered with gaming memory manufacturer HyperX for the German market. "It was the first step into a new area for HyperX and I doubt that back then, they had any idea how big the HyperX gaming product line would become", Müller continues. Well, we know now. Ten years later, HyperX not only produces the best gaming memory but also high-end headsets, keyboards and mousepads, that the SK Gaming players proudly bring into action whenever they play in the biggest tournaments around the world.
After ten successful years, we are looking forward to the next decade of eSports excellence with our longest standing partner. "Ten years is a long time to be working together and we highly value the collaboration and passion SK Gaming continually brings to the table," said Daniel Kelley, director of corporate marketing HyperX, "We've been supporting each other since the early days of eSports and we look forward to continuing the relationship well into the future while wishing them the best of luck in their 2017 tournament schedule." Alexander Müller adds: "It takes a very special partnership to last 10 years in a fast paced market such as eSports. But on the other hand, it doesn't surprise me. HyperX and SK Gaming have been a perfect fit right from the start and I am convinced that we will celebrate more anniversaries together along the way."
