XTRA Gaming joins Team Razer
As the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, Razer has designed and built the world’s largest gamer-focused ecosystem of hardware, software, and services. Recently the company announced a historic partnership with Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok to produce his exclusive hardware products.
XTRA Gaming’s partnership with Razer will produce branded content as well as undertake several social media initiatives to boost the brands’ visibility. Some of these initiatives include player appearances and meet-and-greets at RazerStore locations.
“This moment is huge for our whole organization,” said Manny Vieites, founder and CEO of XTRA Gaming. “After years of hard work and growth, this partnership with Razer means more than most because it's our first. When I started XTRA, my goal was to build a new model for esports organizations by finding under-represented talent, amplifying their voices and building their brands from the ground up. Razer truly understands our talent-centric approach, which will drive the next evolution of esports and give a voice to all gamers around the world regardless of race, religion, color, creed, and sexual orientation.”
