ATLANTA, October, 2019 — Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, has agreed to a three-year partnership with the Esports Awards, the industry’s most prominent celebration of gaming and the business of esports.
“The Esports Awards celebrate everything that’s good about gaming today: the relentless pursuit to be better, the uncompromising desire for excellence, and an amazing community,” said Duncan Ironmonger, Founder and CEO of Scuf Gaming. “We’re excited to embark on this three-year partnership as the Esports Awards heads stateside this year and continues to grow.”
Scuf Gaming will sponsor the Esports Console Player of the Year Award, a prestigious prize that has honored console heavyweights like Mossad ‘MsDossary’ Aldossary, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, and Matthew ‘Formal’ Piper. For 2019, Scuf Gaming has invested in the next generation of talent by sponsoring the Esports Console Rookie of the Year Award, previously won by the likes of Viktor ‘Punk’ Woodley and Kenny ‘Kenny’ Kuavo.
Both awards are highly coveted and contested, with winners entering the Esports Awards Hall of Fame. More than 3.3 Million fans voted in last year’s contest.
“We are honored to partner with Scuf Gaming for the 2019 Esports Awards, marking three years of a successful partnership and more to come,” said Tom Mercey, Co-founder of the Esports Awards. “They’ve been generous sponsors in the past, and we’re so pleased that they continue to support our mission of recognizing excellence in esports.”
The event promises numerous surprises, including a special, behind-the-scenes video tour of Scuf Gaming’s headquarters in Atlanta. With returning host Lottie Van-Praag, Ironmonger gives viewers an exclusive look at Scuf Gaming’s fabrication studios, where the team works tirelessly to perfect each and every controller.
At the event, Scuf Gaming will offer demonstrations of the latest tech in esports and will present the Esports Console Player of the Year award as well as the Esports Console Rookie of the Year award.
