The partnership with The International 10 means SteelSeries will provide its award-winning line of mice, keyboards, headsets and accessories to players and be integrated into event activations. SteelSeries will also be on the ground at the event, meeting fans and providing opportunities for them to interact with their products. Finally, SteelSeries has unveiled The International Dota 2 Championships limited-edition QcK Prism XL, which will be sold at and during the event.
SteelSeries have continued to support the growth of esports through its Prime Franchise. The Prime series features a lineup of lightweight, streamlined mice and a new Arctis Prime headset that features only the best-in-class technology and innovation. The SteelSeries Prime Franchise has worked with 100+ professional players in order to develop the best-in-class performance for peripherals.
SteelSeries has been in the fabric of esports for years through sponsoring teams. Professional esports players have won more money being sponsored by SteelSeries than any other brand. The company continues to show its commitment to esports by forming more partnerships over the last year. T1 and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team are just some of the few partnerships that SteelSeries have secured.
SteelSeries has also previously sponsored teams that have participated in previous tournaments. For this International, Steelseries is once again sponsoring OG on their quest for a three-peat (and a win at this year’s International would secure OG as competitive Dota 2’s first-ever dynasty). Many teams have tried to pull one off, but only OG has come close to making it a reality.
