After recently launching a brand new line of PC gaming products, Velocilinx will no be the peripheral sponsor of Renegades, while also supplying their GameTime training facility located in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Velocilinx will join the list of Renegades partners alongside companies by the likes of Alienware, Champion, HyperX, NVIDIA, Respawn, and Twitch.
With over 30 years in the electronics industry, Velocilinx has recently focused its efforts on creating esports and tournament-ready peripherals with the recent launch of their Warrior line of retail gaming products including keyboards, mice, and headsets for the gaming community. With the team’s involvement in PC game titles, the sponsorship with Velocilinx seems like a great move for the organization.
The new deal will surely provide the team with new opportunities for activations and plenty of new equipment before the 2020 season gets underway.
Renegades have become one of the most elite teams in the esports community as the powerhouse regularly competes in Fortnite, Smite, Paladins, Rocket League, Smash, and iRacing competitions. With the new sponsorship under their belt, a top finish at HRX at DreamHack Atlanta, and upcoming action at RLCS Season 8 Worlds, Renegades will look to continue their reign heading into 2020.
Owner of Renegades and former NBA player Jonas Jerebko said the new sponsorship is a “natural fit” for the esports organization and the team is thrilled to work with them in their backyard of Detroit, Michigan. CEO of Velocilinx John Dimovski says their line of Warrior products were designed for teams such as Renegades and the company can’t wait to start working with the “high-octane family of Renegades teams.”
The news of the new partnership comes a couple of weeks after one of Renegades’ investors Beasley Media Group acquired Overwatch League franchise Houston Outlaws from Immortals Gaming Club as the company seeks to expand their esports platforms. In October, 100 Thieves also announced they completed their buyout agreement with Renegades to acquire the team’s CS:GO roster.
