CARLSBAD, Calif. – Nov. 8, 2012 – Razer, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports, is celebrating the success, dominance and growth of its elite pro-gaming division, “Team Razer,” with the launch of a brand new line of clothing designed with its professional gamers in mind.
Razer has sponsored professional gamers for 12 years, starting with one of the most recognizable names in the industry, Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. As e-Sports transformed over time, so did Razer, culminating today with more than 50 teams on Team Razer—the world’s largest, most successful group of cyber athletes in the world.
Inspired by the Green Jacket in golf’s US Masters, we’re celebrating the continued dominance of Team Razer across all things e-Sports with the launch of our new Team Razer gear, reserved only for the highest performing members of Team Razer.
