OCTOBER 25, 2019—Secretlab, the global partner for League of Legends’ (LoL) tournaments, further commits its support for the LoL scene today with its announced partnership with world-renowned esports organisation, T1 Entertainment & Sports (T1). Secretlab will be the official chair sponsor across all of T1’s competing categories, including the ultra-successful T1 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team, Dota 2, PUBG, Fortnite, Hearthstone and Apex Legends.
Secretlab and T1 have created the Secretlab T1 Edition gaming chair, designed to celebrate T1’s history of success and future accomplishments. The dominant colorway of black and red pays homage to T1’s roaring success over the years, while the chair’s backrest is also intricately embroidered with T1’s new logo that symbolizes the furthering of its rich legacy.
The Secretlab T1 Edition gaming chair will also be used by the team’s professional players to practice and compete in unparalleled comfort, allowing each player to precisely adjust to suit individual sitting preferences and needs. The Secretlab T1 Edition will be based off Secretlab’s award-winning 2020 Series gaming seats, and will be available in the Secretlab TITAN and Secretlab OMEGA models.
The Secretlab T1 Edition gaming chair will be released for sale at a later date.
The T1 LoL team is one of the most decorated teams in esports and is amongst the most successful teams in esports history. The team has won three World Championships (2013, 2015, 2016), as well as five other major titles, including the 2016 and 2017 LoL Mid-Season Invitationals. More recently, the team won their eighth League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Championship, and qualified for LoL World Championship Quarter Finals.
Ian Alexander Ang, CEO and co-founder of Secretlab, said: “T1’s unparalleled success stems from their desire and hunger to be the best. Their unyielding determination to succeed has seen them turn around a difficult year and clinch the LCK 2019 Summer Split—and now playing for a world-record 4th Worlds title. As an organization and down to each individual player, T1 only demands for the best. That’s why they approached us to provide their players with our award-winning gaming seats to enable them to continue and further the T1 legacy. We’re proud to keep their top-level players seated in utmost comfort and game in peak performance during trainings and throughout their games at Worlds.”
“Secretlab is the perfect gaming chair partner for T1,” said Joe Marsh, CEO of T1. “The quality of their product is unparalleled and provides the best experience for our teams. We want to ensure our players are comfortable and equipped with the proper tools for optimal performance at all times, which is why we train with Secretlab gaming chairs and chose them for this year’s Mid-Season Invitational and Worlds.”
T1 joins Secretlab’s roster of top, winning esports teams such as Astralis, Cloud9 and Team Secret. Secretlab is also the gaming seat of choice for premier esports tournaments such as the League of Legends’ World Championships, Valve and Dota 2’s The International, as well as the recently-concluded StarLadder Major Berlin 2019, one of Valve’s only two official Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major tournaments for 2019.
