OMEN by HP and the leading German esports team BIG (Berlin International Gaming) are cooperating in a strategic partnership to actively support the German gaming community and enable gamers to develop themselves and their game. In BIG, OMEN by HP has found a partner who shares the same values and is also committed to promoting young German gamers.
BIG has been competing in national and international esports tournaments since 2017 and is already playing against the international elite of gaming. After winning the German Counter-Strike: Global Offensive championship in 2017, the organization was able to establish itself in a leading position at national level and has already achieved numerous decent results internationally. Besides teams in League of Legends, FIFA and other games, the Counter-Strike Team is the flagship of the organization.
“We are very pleased about our cooperation with OMEN by HP, as our brands not only fit together perfectly, but also pursue the common goal of promoting talented German gamers,” said Daniel Finkler, CEO, BIG. “Through our partnership we want to further develop the gaming scene and support young people in esports. Beyond that we at BIG are enthusiastic about the hardware HP offers and we are happy about being equipped with OMEN devices.“
The pursuit of these common strategic goals is the key aspect of the partnership. With two major projects,the next esports generation of players is to be formed on a professional level, thus promoting the development of digital sports. The projects include educational video formats with the team’s professional players, as well as a youth project which will be announced and implemented shortly. The partnership is complemented by joint communication across various channels and the support of BIG players with professional OMEN hardware.
The cooperation with BIG is part of the OMEN Academy newly established by HP. With it, OMEN by HP has created a communication platform for all activities within esports and gaming. The OMEN Academy aims to improve the abilities of amateur and professional players and to accompany them on their journey. In addition to BIG, OMEN by HP cooperates with relevant key players and influencers from the esports and gaming environment and develops its own event formats such as the OMEN by HP Dominators' Cup, an online tournament series for amateur esports teams. Furthermore, the OMEN Academy is also present at the most important gaming events, such as Gamescom or Dreamhack.
“By now, about 200 professional gamers in Germany can live on esports, and among the population the acceptance of this sport is increasing, too. We want to continue contributing to the development of esports and we are convinced that in BIG we have found a first-class partner who pursues the same goal as we do,” said Rosa Maria Alcauce, Campaign Manager PC-Gaming at HP. “BIG has impressively proven that they are ready for the international esports stage. That's why we're looking forward to the projects we’ll be working on together over the coming months. We are also pleased to announce further details about the OMEN Academy in the future and to push this trend-setting project forward together with our partners.“
