Under the multi-year deal, Alienware will become the Official Competition PC and Display Partner for the League of Legends World Championship, League of Legends European Championship and North American League of Legends Championship Series.

Alienware will also provide hardware for the Mid-Season Invitational, North America v Europe Rift Rivals, and the All-Star Event, while Dell’s ‘SupportAssist’ diagnostic tool will be used to fix technical issues during professional competitions.
