Trust Gaming is to become the next major partner for Unicorns of Love (UoL). From 1 July, the international company for value-for-money hardware accessories will equip the players with custom mice, keyboards and mouse pads as an official partner. This partnership, brokered by Lagardère Sports, will see the Trust Gaming logo placed on the players’ jerseys and entails a number of social media activities.
“As our slogan is #buildingchampions we are very happy with this partnership, since this shows everybody that we really act in line with this story. With the support of the UoL players we can further improve our products, hand insightful tips and therefore be a true partner for every young gamer in his quest to be the next gaming champion. We are very glad to be able to support Unicorns of Love in achieving the best results with the right gear,” explained Jurgen Verheijen, Marketing Manager of Trust Gaming.
“This is a partnership between two brands whose target groups complement one another perfectly. Trust Gaming has its roots in the gaming scene and, as a partner, will be able to support UoL players with the right gaming accessories. In turn, Trust Gaming will benefit from a high level of visibility and the popularity of UoL. The planned social media modules will allow targeted activation activities to be carried out that will benefit both parties in the long term,” explained Thomas Ottl, Manager eSports at Lagardère Sports Germany GmbH.
“It’s not just our passion for eSports that forms the connection between us and Trust Gaming, but also our common goals. We are looking forward to actively engaging in this partnership and implementing projects together that place the focus on our community,” adds Jos Mallant, CEO of Unicorns of Love.
