The Esports Awards, the only truly global awards ceremony in esports, are delighted to announce a repeat of its partnership with Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, as an official Event Partner for 2018.
Scuf Gaming will once again sponsor the prestigious Esports Console Player of the Year Award, previously won by console heavyweights such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘Formal’ Piper.
The award is highly coveted and contested, with winners entering the Esports Awards Hall of Fame. More than 800,000 thousand fans voted in last year’s contest. This year will be no different. Just as gaming has exploded in popularity over the past year, the awards have generated a massive 1.6 million votes this year, and have become a hotly anticipated fixture on the esports calendar. The ceremony will be aired on Monday the 12th of November, live from The Brewery in London.
“Our mission at Scuf has always been to help players achieve excellence and perform at the highest level,” said Duncan Ironmonger, founder and CEO of Scuf Gaming. “This distinguished award recognizes exactly that – the top player who shares a similar mission and their dedication to greatness over the past year.”
We are incredibly excited to have Scuf Gaming on board for the 2018 Esports Awards, as a partner they represent the core values we strive to maintain and provide top tier gaming peripherals to the esports community. We welcome their return to partner with the Esports Awards and appreciate Scuf supporting our mission of recognising excellence in esports.
