Since then, our effort and commitment have sparked amazing partnerships that have not only added value to brands and the esports ecosystem but unprecedented levels of fan engagement.
“Logitech G and T1 were always a good fit for both company and team, and we know this will be a massive opportunity for both parties to work together to generate cool content for gamers and T1 fans globally.”
