Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company has announced gaming peripherals maker Redragon as the latest sponsor for its Flamengo Esports brand.
Redragon, which makes devices such as headsets, keyboards, and mice, joins other Flamengo Esports sponsors such as Adidas and Twitch.
Roman Franklin, President of Simplicity Esports, commented in a release: “I am excited to announce the signing of another corporate sponsor for our Flamengo Esports team. Redragon is a well known global brand that sells its products in 30 countries on four continents. We value all of our official partners and sponsors, and their financial commitments that contribute to the success of Flamengo Esports. This will be a mutually beneficial sponsorship arrangement that prominently displays the Redragon brand on our Flamengo Esports jersey sleeve.”
Flamengo Esports, established in 2017, is the official esports team of Brazilian esports team Clube de Regatas do Flamengo. In January, Simplicity Esports announced that it had reached an agreement to take over management of Flamengo Esports, which competes in Riot Games’ Campeonato Brasileiro de League of Legends (CBLoL) league and participated in last year’s League of Legends World Championship.
Simplicity Esports also operates esports gaming centers. Last week, the company announced that it had secured a $500,000 (£425,080) investment from Triton Funds, and in February the company announced that it had sold three additional gaming centre franchise territories in the United States.
Esports Insider says: Simplicity Esports has already amassed some big-name partners in Twitch and Adidas, and this latest agreement with Redragon should prove beneficial to both parties.
