On April 6th, the Call of Duty League franchise Atlanta FaZe secured a partnership with SteelSeries and KontrolFreek. As a result of this deal, SteelSeries and KontrolFreek will provide the team with a range of gaming headsets and thumbsticks.
SteelSeries will now be the official headset partner of Atlanta FaZe while KontrolFreek will be the team’s official thumbsticks provider. On top of that, all three organizations will work together on a number of projects including product testing, brand activations, and digital events.
“We’re excited to align with SteelSeries and KontrolFreek, two iconic brands with a tonne of rich history in esports and gaming and they continually push the boundaries of innovation for gamers,” said James Crowder, the Head Coach of Atlanta FaZe. “It’s no secret that SteelSeries creates the best audio in gaming and esports and our players have won multiple championships using KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks over the years, so we knew we wanted to be a part of the SteelSeries and KontrolFreek families and give our players a competitive edge.”
SteelSeries and KontrolFreek are now the fourth and fifth companies to partner with Atlanta FaZe, respectively. In the past, the organization had secured deals with RESPAWN, Mountain Dew’s energy drink brand, and the controller company Scuf Gaming.
