Taiwanese electronics company Acer has agreed a three-year extension to its partnership with esports company ESL.

The deal designates Acer as the Official Global Partner for all four Intel Extreme Masters events across seasons 14 through 16, as a continuation from the weekend’s finale of season 13 at IEM Katowice.

As the exclusive PC partner at IEM, Acer’s gaming-oriented brand, Predator, will be fully integrated in all aspects of CS:GO tournaments for upcoming Intel Extreme Masters seasons.

The latest Acer Predator-brand monitors will be showcased throughout the coming seasons, with Acer laptops stationed at the analyst desk for each event.

With the extended partnership, Acer will seek to engage new audiences while continuing to bring technologies, innovations and game-changing designs first to market.
