Posted on: Jul 11, 2019 By Isabelle in News and trends,

The world’s largest PC manufacturer, Lenovo, has thrown its considerable weight behind Esports Scotland in a new season-long sponsorship agreement.

Following a successful first season, organizers of the Scottish Esports League, Esports Scotland will have Lenovo as primary sponsor for its second spell. 

Last year, more than 300 players and 100 teams took part in the league with numbers expected to grow this season in line with the increasing global popularity of Esports.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, Lenovo will provide top of the range Lenovo Legion gaming PCs for competitors from across the country to put their skills to the test against one another.

The format of the Scottish Esports League will see gamers compete across four titles – Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege – to secure a place at the grand final where prizes worth over £5,000 are up for grabs.

The final, where the best gamers in the country will meet, will be held during Resonate gaming experience at the SEC in Glasgow on 20-21 July. Lenovo machines will be housed in Big Betty, a converted 18-wheeler and the world’s first self-contained Esports facility.
