Headset producer Turtle Beach and RFRSH Entertainment’s BLAST Pro Series have announced a collaboration for the upcoming CS:GO tournament in Copenhagen. The partnership will see the California-based company become the official partner for the Nov. 2-3 event.
Delivering exceptional gear
Turtle Beach, one of the leading gaming headset providers, becoming the official partner of the BLAST Pro Series is a great example of an industry player strengthening its ties. During the tournament, the company will showcase its new Atlas series.
“We entered the PC gaming market this year with our all-new Atlas headsets and a plan to support top PC players, teams, and events like BLAST Pro Series,” said Turtle Beach Marketing VP Andrew Lilien. “We’ve already seen some outstanding reviews for the Elite Atlas, in which Astralis played an integral role in designing.”
Equipping its products with features like ProSpecs™ glasses friendly design, an upgraded magnetic memory foam ear cushions, pro-tuned 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers, and the removable high-sensitivity microphone with TruSpeak™ technology, it becomes clear why the company is considered among the industry leaders.
“We’re thrilled to have Turtle Beach joining us in Copenhagen,” said RFRSH Entertainment Co-founder and EVP Sales Jakob Lund Kristensen. “The continued growth and popularity of esports globally requires organizations like ours to deliver nothing short of exceptional quality in all aspects of competitive events, and Turtle Beach’s Elite Atlas PC gaming headset delivers the high-quality audio pro players require to find success on the tournament stage.”
Besides the BLAST Pro Series, Turtle Beach also shows its support for the industry through various other partnerships. These include OpTic Gaming, Astralis, Splyce, SYF Gaming, and VfL Wolfsburg, among others. The company also recently signed an esports partnership with Manchester City.
Six top teams to battle for $250,000
The BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen will see six of the top CS:GO teams fight for a share of the $250,000 prize pool. Cloud 9, FaZe Clan, MIBR, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and the local team, Astralis, will try to claim first place.
The hosting Royal Arena opened last year and has a capacity of about 16,000. The RFRSH-run event launched last year in Copenhagen and then moved to Istanbul in September.
The organizers behind the event appear constantly on the lookout for strategic partnerships. This year’s Istanbul event, for example, secured a partnership with Turkish Airlines, while also featuring Epics Digital Collectibles for a more interactive experience.
Despite its relative youth, the event is gaining traction.
