Hyperkin and Power Up Gaming Join Forces in eSports Sponsorship.7/18/2016
Today, we are proud to announce our new partners in eSports sponsorship, Hyperkin, to Team Power Up Gaming. Based out of Southern California, Hyperkin, has rapidly established a reputation for developing innovative, reliable and cost-friendly video game peripherals. They design, manufacture and distribute a wide variety of accessories for every major platform, including Nintendo® Wii U™, Sony® PlayStation®4, Microsoft® Xbox One, New Nintendo® 3DS™ as well as an extensive catalog of peripherals for classic platforms like NES, SNES, GameBoy™, SEGA® Genesis™, Saturn™ and Dreamcast™.
I put a lot of pride into our Power Up Gaming eSports organization. As the team manager now and previous competitor in sports growing up, I've been on both sides of the spectrum when it comes to sponsorships. This gives me the experience to acknowledge what it's like to be in the shoes of our players and provide them with everything they need to be able to do what they love, everyday. It is in my best interest to stand as a resource for our players and give them all the tools they need to maximize their experience, growth, and exposure.
It has been 8 months now since we first started our team and recruited one of our very first players, Vash (left), who represents our SSB4 team and is ranked as one of the top 10 players in the Las Vegas community. I made the time to talk to Vash face to face about our decision in teaming up with Hyperkin. His response was inspiring.
"I've always felt crazy for thinking there was something more to myself then what meets the eye. Power up gaming saw that, and put their faith in me. 8 months later here we are partnered with one of the up and coming innovators of video game peripheral, Hyperkin."
On behalf of myself and the rest of our staff and organization at Power Up Gaming, I would like to say thank you to Hyperkin for this exciting opportunity. I am more than proud to stand behind them as a believer in their brand and company. The strides we make are historic to our story and with this new partnership I'm excited to see where our future is headed, together.
