Australian esports organisation Dire Wolves has announced a hardware and display partnership with technology corporation MSI.
The deal will see MSI provide a range of hardware, including displays, gaming chairs and other components, to Dire Wolves’s athletes and content creators.
In return, Dire Wolves will represent the hardware company across major leagues in the Oceanic region, such as the League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO).
Jeremy Tate, Marketing Manager ANZ at MSI, spoke on the announcement: “It’s long been our mission at MSI to deliver the ultimate in-game advantage for esports competition, and today we take another exciting step down that path in partnership with the Dire Wolves, who share a common passion for winning and pushing the envelope of performance. In turn, MSI is thrilled today to announce our support of the Dire Wolves esports team.
“The partnership offers incredible collaboration between the talented ranks at Dire Wolves paired with our award-winning gaming hardware at MSI, and sets the stage to raise the bar and elevate esports to new levels within the region.”
The deal will cover all of Dire Wolves’s active rosters and the Dire Wolves Stream Team.
According to the release, the partnership represents MSI’s continued commitment to supporting esports and gaming communities around the world. Moreover, the company aims to further expand its brand presence in Oceanic esports.
Jason Spiller, Owner of Dire Wolves, added: “MSI has an incredible legacy in the esports and gaming space in every corner of the world, and we’re absolutely thrilled to have their expertise and hardware onboard across the entire wolf pack. Our teams have a jam-packed competitive calendar for the rest of the year and beyond, and knowing we have the very best hardware and support gives us the confidence to perform at the highest level, and hopefully bring home more trophies!
“2021 has already been a landmark year for Oceanic esports with the launch of the LCO and the new Eden Park facility acting as a central hub for the community, and having the support of global leaders like MSI shows that the world is taking note.”
In February, Dire Wolves acquired esports organisation AVANT Gaming and united its teams under the Dire Wolves brand. This resulted in Dire Wolves entering CS:GO esports for the first time.
The organisation currently operates professional teams in League of Legends, VALORANT, CS:GO, FIFA, NBA 2K, Overwatch, Rocket League and Apex Legends.
Esports Insider says: Following the acquisition of Avant Gaming, Dire Wolves continues strengthening its position on the Oceanic market by partnering with one of the biggest hardware manufacturers. This partnership reflects the organisation’s goal to establish itself as the premier esports organisation in Oceania, as well as MSI’s dedication to supporting esports on all levels.
