ROG technology joins forces with ESL One

Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) has been named as the Official PC and Monitor Partner for all ‘ESL One powered by Intel’ events through 2019.

Under the deal, ESL will integrate ROG technology during ESL One’s international competitions. The analyst desks will also be equipped with ROG Strix Hero II and SCAR II laptops.

In addition, ROG will supply products for the ESL back office and have an active on-site presence at each ESL One venue. Products will be updated as new products are released.

Vivian Lien, head of global marketing for gaming and chief marketing officer at Asus North America, said: “ROG has always been dedicated to the gaming community and we look forward to this new partnership with ESL as an opportunity to support the esports industry on an international scale.”

ESL One is one of ESL’s global flagship circuits and features esports competitions in popular game titles such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Dota 2.

The partnership kicked off at ESL One in Katowice, Poland, last week. There will be five additional events over the season.
