New Partnership with Allegiance Furthers Turtle Beach’s Dedication to Player Supremacy in Competitive Esports, Arming Allegiance Players Across Rocket League, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Arena of Valor, and Clash Royale with the Latest Headsets and Gear as They Prepare to Step Into the Arena
San Diego, CA – June 6, 2018 – Turtle Beach (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand, today announced a new partnership with esports franchise Team Allegiance. This partnership will see Turtle Beach equipping Allegiance’s Rocket League team as they do battle in the Rocket League Championship Series, as well as players in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and new mobile esports titles Arena of Valor and Clash Royale with its Elite Pro line of gaming headsets and other audio accessories and gear.
Esports is all about showing guts in the face of adversity – but that doesn’t mean you actually have to show the guts. Team Allegiance prides itself on its family-friendly nature and focus on mobile gaming – both core tenets of the organization. Allegiance players are second to none in their grit and excellence, embracing all fans equally with their commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness. This commitment to quality for all levels of gamers is also what separates Turtle Beach from competitors. Together, Turtle Beach and Allegiance will highlight the importance of great game sound and the impact of squad communication and how those two elements combine to help climb the leaderboards. The partnership will also create content that showcases how the Allegiance teams and personalities dedicate themselves to being the best.
“To become an esports champion takes dedication, training, and determination no matter which game you’re playing,” said Andrew Lilien, VP of Marketing, Turtle Beach. “We see excellence and fun across the full range of games. We strive to support players’ journeys across all games by delivering the superior audio experience needed to crush all comers. Allegiance’s dedication to its teams and the passion of their fans melds perfectly with ours and we look forward to fostering the next generation of champions together.”
Connor Hall, President of Allegiance, commented, “Today, esports champions exist across all types of games, and across all platforms from PC and console to the exploding mobile esports space. We know this at a fundamental level and it is amazing to have a partner in Turtle Beach that recognizes this too. We look forward to empowering our players and fans with the passion that both Allegiance and Turtle Beach share in building greatness.”
Added Ryan Musselman, SVP of Global Partnerships for Infinite Esports & Entertainment, “We are looking forward to furthering Turtle Beach’s multi-faceted approach toward esports. By partnering Allegiance with Turtle Beach, we are able to help them embrace additional new audiences, and continue to showcase the competitive progress and capabilities that come from aligning with the top gaming audio brand.”
Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro line has set the standard for esports gaming audio equipment, delivering best-in-class audio performance for game sound and team chat, plus innovative comfort-driven technologies to ensure players stay comfortable and cool under fire. Together, Turtle Beach and Allegiance now pursue esports domination with a new fan base and gaming audience.
Esports is all about showing guts in the face of adversity – but that doesn’t mean you need to literally show the guts. Whether it be Rocket League, Super Smash Bros. Melee, or Arena of Valor, the players under Allegiance are second to nobody in their grit and excellence, and embraces all fans equally with their commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness.
