It seems the German esports scene is finally getting some love as the German CS:GO org DIVIZON announced its partnership with snakebyte, innovators of consumer electronics hardware.
DIVIZON were formerly known as KILLERFISH eSport but were then forced to rebrand in October of 2016 due to their name sponsor, KILLERFISH HOT ENERGY, closing down shop. Since then the org has gone through many roster changes and even split ways with their entire roster in December before acquiring a new one on February 1st of this year. Prior to their split, the team placed 1st at the 99Lig Season 4 Division 1 tournament.
Snakebyte, on the other hand, is known for producing a number of gaming related accessories such as Xbox One Controller Keyboards, PC Gaming Headsets and even Android Bluetooth Controllers.
Through this partnership, the DIVIZON players will be required to represent and promote snakebyte at tournaments and consult them on future PC product purchases.
Markus Pieprznik, CEO of snakebyte Group had the following to say about the partnership according to the news release on DIVIZON’s website: “Esports is an area of extreme interest to snakebyte and we’re excited to work with the professionals of DIVIZON to help promote our brand and assist in the strategy and development of our PC product range.”
Dennis Schmidt, CEO of DIVIZON also commented: “snakebyte is a well-established brand in gaming and we’re impressed at their commitment to quality and to the eSports scene in general. We couldn’t be happier than to work with their team of designers and engineers to help shape the next-generation of PC products and look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration.”
Esports Insider says: It’s nice to see countries in which the scene isn’t as big as it is in others get the attention they deserve from sponsors. If we keep going like this, soon we’ll have an even more diverse esports world.
