San Diego, CA – April 19, 2018 – Turtle Beach (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading worldwide gaming audio brand, today announced a new partnership with Knicks Gaming as the organization’s official gaming peripherals partner for the 2018 NBA 2K League season. The partnership will see Knicks Gaming players using Turtle Beach headsets at the Knicks Gaming training facility, and the two companies also plan to produce a variety of content highlighting the fun and challenging aspects of the inaugural season. The first ever NBA 2K draft took place April 4, 2018 with Knicks Gaming selecting 9th overall and welcoming Dayvon “GOOFY757” Curry as the first ever member of the Knicks Gaming organization. League play begins with the tip-off tournament May 1-5 and runs through August 2018. NBA 2K players need every advantage possible to dominate the competition, and powerful game audio tuned for esports and crystal-clear team chat are crucial to securing victory. Knicks Gaming players will use Turtle Beach’s flagship Elite Pro gaming headsets in all practices and streaming sessions.
“We’re thrilled to be an integral part of the Knicks Gaming organization during the founding year of the NBA 2K League,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “Our headsets deliver a distinct competitive advantage through pinpoint accurate audio and clear team chat. Having the Knicks Gaming players using Turtle Beach audio equipment to train with and then dominate in their games will be a joy to watch.”
“Turtle Beach gaming peripherals are unmatched in their ability to provide a clear advantage for our players, which makes Turtle Beach the perfect partner for Knicks Gaming,” said Kristin Bernert, general manager, Knicks Gaming.
