HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and Allied Esports, a global esports entertainment company, today announced an exclusive naming rights partnership and multiyear agreement under which Allied Esports’ global flagship property, located at the Luxor Hotel & Casino, was newly named the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas, the first dedicated esports venue on the Las Vegas Strip.
The new deal expands on an already robust partnership between Allied Esports and HyperX. Earlier this year, HyperX became the Official Peripheral and Arena Partner of the Las Vegas arena, equipping gamers with HyperX headsets, keyboards, mice and mouse pads for esports tournaments, special events, and daily play. The new HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas has opened in March 2018 and quickly become a global destination for esports fans, players, streamers, and teams. The venue has staged some of the most popular esports entertainment events and productions of the year across a variety of game genres and titles.
“HyperX’s commitment and dedication to all things esports has helped to propel the brand to become a favorite for professional and casual gamers, and attaining the naming rights for HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas allow us a great opportunity to grow our audience,” said HyperX. “Allied Esports is a respected esports partner for us and we look forward to announcing more successes with them.”
As part of the partnership, HyperX will be sponsoring events at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. From January 9-12 during CES 2019, HyperX is planning a variety of social and marketing activities that will include the newly announced HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. More information on the CES activations and other HyperX-sponsored events currently in the planning stages will be available closer to the event dates.
