Secretlab, international gaming seat specialist, enters a multi-year global partnership with Riot Games—the developer, publisher, and league operator behind the world’s most-played game and most-viewed esports title, League of Legends.
Secretlab will become the choice of gaming seats for the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) in North America and the three premier global events: The Mid-Season Invitational, the All-Star Event, and the pinnacle of the League of Legends’ competitive calendar, the World Championship, which in 2018 broke all esports viewership records with 99.6 million fans tuning in to watch the World Finals.
The LCS, which will be the first in the series of the events, will be returning for its seventh year of competition on January 26.
Secretlab joins League of Legends Esports’ other global sponsors Mastercard and Alienware, both of whom had recently announced their partnership with Riot Games.
“The best League of Legends athletes require the best equipment,” said Naz Aletaha, Head of Global Esports Partnerships at Riot Games. “Secretlab’s award-winning chairs offer seating that’s optimized for peak performance and comfort, making Secretlab the obvious choice for top League of Legends players competing for the highest stakes.”
Secretlab will also be the first global partner to sell the official chairs of LCS and League of Legends global esports events. Fans can also look forward to upgrading their seating experience with the Secretlab League of Legends Esports tournament-edition chairs. The same gaming seats used by professional players at the premier League of Legends tournaments will be available for purchase throughout the season.
Said Ian Alexander Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab: “Partnering with the world’s most premier esport to provide seating for their global tournaments is exactly what we set up Secretlab to do—creating the ultimate seating experience for gamers through the highest-caliber engineering and using materials of the highest grade. We are incredibly proud to provide our ultra-comfortable chairs to support the standards required by the most skilled League of Legends professional players in the world for 2019 and beyond.
