Netgear announce sponsorship with NRG Esports

Just in time for this year's IEM Sydney, Netgear has announced plans to partner with Northern California-based NRG esports.

“Our Nighthawk Pro Gaming products are specifically built to improve online game play and provide that competitive edge gamers are seeking. Partnerships with professional teams such as NRG enables us to connect with players and the overall gaming community to better understand the networking challenges they face,” said Heidi Cormack, senior vice president of global marketing for Netgear.

“We are thrilled to be a featured sponsor of NRG and their roster of talented teams.”

As part of the sponsorship, NRG will leverage Nighthawk Pro Gaming products in their training facility and participate in Boot Camps at the Netgear headquarters in the new Nighthawk Pro Gaming lounge.

“We are pleased to be working with Netgear, the leading provider of networking equipment for the home, gamers and small business,” said Andy Miller, owner and CEO of NRG and the San Francisco Shock.

“We look forward to this collaboration and hope to set the tone for how corporate endemic brands support these exciting teams of professional gamers.”

Netgear say the new agreement represents an ongoing and extended investment by NETGEAR in esports and the gaming community. It coincides with the IEM tournament in Sydney, Australia where the NRG CS:GO team is competing in the first LAN-based event since the team formed.

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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
