Acer becomes official League of Legends sponsor

Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Acer has been named as an official sponsor and monitor partner of League of Legends (LoL) eSports.

The company will provide its Predator range of gaming monitors to LoL events throughout 2017, including the  League of Legends World Championships, Mid-Season Invitational, and the Summer Split League of Legends Championship Series.

The deal is an extension of Acer's ongoing partnership with Riot Games, the organiser behind the League of Legends eSports series of events.

"League of Legends eSports is in our most exciting season yet, and we're delighted to be partnering once more with Acer in 2017 to bring esports experiences to fans," said Jarred Kennedy, co-head of eSports at Riot Games. "These kind of brand partnerships are a vital part of the ecosystem and we can't wait to team up to watch the best in the world compete on the international stage."
