HyperX Partner with Sydney Swans

HyperX have announced the official headset sponsorship of the Sydney Swans, the first professional AFL team to partner with HyperX in Australia.

During the 2018 season, Sydney Swans will wear HyperX headers on match day in the coach’s box and players bench, and HyperX will work closely with the Swans organisation to create co-branded stories and activities.

HyperX also announced the sponsorship with SCG’s Esports High Performance Centre. Newly established in November 2017, the Esports High Performance Centre is also the home base of HyperX sponsored LG Dire Wolves. It is equipped with sport science such as eye tracking technology and performance analysis, along with full HyperX peripherals including headsets, keyboards and mice to improve local esports talents’ skills and help them become globally competitive. With the sponsorship of Dire Wolves, Sydney Swans and EHPC, HyperX has become the first gaming brand to bond with esports, traditional sports and training facilities in Australia.

“We’re excited to be the first gaming accessories company to partner with an AFL team. Traditional sports like AFL have a long history and solid supply from enthusiastic fans, and as esports Is catching up quickly, we do see the trend of both sports converging and growing together,” said Susan Yang, Marketing Director, APAC Region of HyperX.

“With the cutting edge technology and top performance peripherals, the alliance of HyperX and EHPC will help local talent elevate their performance to the next level.”

Sydney Swans Head Of Strategy and Commercial, Grant Rose, said it’s an opportunity to work with two organisations leading the way in technology.

“We are excited to partner with HyperX to integrate their products into our programs,” said Rose. “This is one of the first major partnerships to sit across both traditional sport and esports, and it gives us the opportunity to work more closely with the Esports High Performance Centre across commercial and training practices. There are certainly similarities in the work we both put in behind the scenes to deliver on our respective programs - and accessing technology plays a large part in that.”

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
