South Korean esports team, T1 announced its partnership deal with the Singaporean-American multinational technology company Razer.
The deal will see Lee Sang-Hyeok also known as T1 Faker who is a professional League of Legends player for T1 design and develop a range of exclusive products.
Flo Gutierrez, Global Esports Director at Razer said, “There is and there will forever be only one Faker. He’s a living legend that has inspired and is still inspiring millions of gamers around the world. We are most honoured to have him joining the Team Razer family and definitely excited about our astonishing upcoming line of products.”
Along with the deal, Razer and T1 will work together in giveaways that will provide fans with an opportunity to win different prizes.
Razer will also provide gaming products to the T1 academy students. Joe Marsh, CEO of T1 said, “I’m very excited that T1 and Faker are partnering with Razer to develop Faker’s first-ever branded mouse. It’s an exciting time in our history and we look forward to building something special for gamers around the globe with Razer.”
Faker and T1 have both been on the rise recently. Faker has guided his team to return to the League of Legends World Championship for 2021 after the Korean squad couldn’t manage to qualify for the event in the previous year. T1 still isn’t considered the dominant favourite for the event that it once was, but there’s no doubt that with a star player like Faker on the roster, anything is possible for T1.
The deal will see both parties enhance their global outreach even further.
