Esports powerhouse SK Gaming will have their team members equipped with a new set of peripherals when they play. The team announced today that they have partnered with Razer and will be their exclusive audio partner.

"Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, and SK Gaming, one of the world’s most recognized competitive gaming brands, today announced a new strategic partnership. Both brands have pioneered esports, and their continuous support of competitive gaming has helped shape a professional competitive ecosystem and multi-million-dollar industry."

The partnership will not only help members of the SK Gaming organization but will also help Razer develop new products. "Razer will provide SK Gaming team members with the latest pro-audio products. In return, SK Gaming’s players will support Razer during product development and validation processes. With some of the world’s best esports athletes in its ranks, SK Gaming is able to provide valuable feedback that Razer will use to meet the demands of ambitious players."

Both parties are thrilled that the partnership has come to fruition. "We are truly excited to work with an esports powerhouse like SK Gaming," said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "We both have a hunger for winning and a deep love for competitive gaming in our DNA, and together we will set new milestones in esports."

"Perfect audio is essential for our players and, with Razer, we can be sure that our teams are playing under the best possible conditions," said Alexander Müller, Managing Director of SK Gaming. "Both SK Gaming and Razer have contributed to the growth of eSports over decades and together we aim to go even further in the future, which makes this a very natural fit."
