Hong Kong-based esports organisation Talon Esports has announced a partnership with the gaming division of leading seating manufacturer Recaro.
The partnership will see Recaro provide PSG.Talon with Recaro Exo gaming seats to all staff and players in Hong Kong.
Partnered with PSG Esports, PSG.Talon competes in League of Legends’ Asia Pacific region, having won the 2020 Pacific Championship Series Spring Split, 2020 Mid-Season Showdown, and represented the region at Worlds 2020.
According to the press release, Recaro’s gaming seats are developed from scratch, in consultation with gamers, and are designed to offer ‘perfect support’ whilst also enclosing the player like that of ‘an exoskeleton’.
Lars Schilling, Managing Director of Recaro Gaming commented: “We are delighted to embark on a partnership with PSG.Talon as we see many similarities in our ethos of delivering our best performance.
“It is the right decision for us to cooperate with the talented PSG.Talon team and provide them with the best possible equipment. Through this partnership, we underline our claim to further strengthen the esports scene and we are looking forward to many PSG.Talon victories on our seats.”
The Pacific Championship Series will commence on February 19th and will be broadcast across Twitch, Youtube, Huya and the Egg Network.
Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon Esports added: “We are extremely excited to team up with Recaro here in Hong Kong. As a car enthusiast, I have been a fan of Recaro for many years and as with their racing seats, we can feel the quality and work that has been put into creating the best possible seat.
“With both our organisations aiming to the best in what we do, there is no better partner for PSG.Talon.”
Esports Insider Says: German seating icon Recaro has been around for over a century, but the new Recaro Gaming division is a newer entity aiming to ‘electrify’ the esports sector. The partnership is a good one for Recaro as it joins arms with one of the most successful organisations in Asia-Pacific.
