The League of Legends team Unicorn of Love (UoL) and the gaming accessories manufacturer Trust Gaming are extending their collaboration. In 2018, the international company will also equip the pink unicorns with custom mice, keyboards and mouse pads and will also appear on the player’s jerseys. Trust Gaming joined UoL as a partner in June 2017. The collaboration, brokered by Lagardère Sports, will now be extended for one year with an option for 2019.
Michel Hoekstra, CEO of Trust Gaming, explains, “past months have shown that our commitment to the Unicorns of Love puts us in the perfect position. We seek to continually improve our products for young gamers – and the tips from players clearly help us a lot with this. Exciting content covering all aspects of the team also enables us to live up to our slogan #BuildingChampions.”
“The partnership with Trust Gaming is simply a perfect fit and we are therefore delighted to continue with the collaboration. Each of us inspires the other to greater heights and we benefit enormously from the manufacturer’s expertise and the quality of the products. Trust Gaming equipment allows our players to fully exploit their potential,” explains Jos Mallant, CEO of Unicorns of Love.
