On September 24th, LG Electronics USA announced it had agreed to a collaboration with the gaming organization Evil Geniuses. As a result, the two parties will work together to host a two-part esports invitational series directed at college gamers.
The Collegiate Showcase Series Invitational powered by LG UltraGear was virtually held on September 25th and 26th. The series’ events were live-streamed on the Evil Geniuses Twitch channel.
“Evil Geniuses believes collegiate esports are integral to the development of the broader esports ecosystem,” said Sabrina Wong, the Lead of the Genius League Collegiate Program at Evil Geniuses. “With the Collegiate Showcase Series Invitational powered by LG UltraGear, we have a partner in LG that is equally committed by providing the athletes with elite products to compete at their best.”
A two-day-long League of Legends tournament was also held during the invitational. Participants had a chance to earn a part of the event’s $10,000 prize pool.
