Last year at CES, Alienware and Team Liquid announced their collaboration on the first Alienware Training Facility. Located in Los Angeles, the 10,000+ sq.ft. facility and studio space serves as the US headquarters for the storied esports organization. Besides the world-class technology, amenities, and support staff most would expect from an organization of this caliber, the professional atmosphere and work-life balance truly helped to propel Team Liquid athletes even further.
Since the facility’s opening in March 2018, Team Liquid’s League of Legends roster have won back-to-back domestic LCS Championships, their Counter-Strike squad has competed and appeared in more than 10 grand finals and Team Liquid continues to be one of the most dominant, top-earning esports organizations in the world. The partnership between Alienware and Team Liquid has made a significant difference in how these professionals develop and stay successful throughout the season.
In 2019 Alienware and Team Liquid continue to raise the bar with the establishment of the second Alienware Training Facility in Utrecht, Netherlands, a state-of-the-art space that will become the future European headquarters and additional training hub for Team Liquid athletes competing across the world.
In addition, Alienware and Team Liquid will kick-off the most extensive and comprehensive hardware partnership in esports to date. Liquid’s athletes will now train, compete, live-stream and even help in the development across the full portfolio of Alienware desktops, laptops, premium displays, gaming headsets, and peripherals. This end-to-end hardware collaboration between Alienware and Team Liquid gives both organizations a perfect union focused towards designing and refining new iterations of elite gaming hardware and peripherals.
