Leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand Turtle Beach, today announced another significant partnership as the official esports and gaming headset partner for Manchester City eSports. The new partnership will see all Manchester City pro players using Turtle Beach’s Elite Pro line of professional gaming audio equipment, as well as other Turtle Beach gear and accessories. Manchester City currently fields two top-tier competitive players in EA SPORTS FIFA 18.
As well as achieving success on the pitch, Manchester City has also been investing resources in dominating the virtual game by signing prolific EA SPORTS FIFA pro players Marcus ‘Marcuzo’ Jorgensen, and more recently Kai ‘Deto’ Wollin – the reigning PS4™ world champion.
“As the leading brand in gaming audio we’re thrilled to team-up with the Premier League Champions. No matter what the game, competitive play is about total immersion, and that is what the Manchester City players can expect from our Elite Pro series,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “Manchester City is a truly global brand and while their esports endeavors are just beginning, we’re ready to embark on the journey with them to help achieve even more success, both on the virtual pitch and off.”
On August 2-4, 2018, both Manchester City players will be competing in the FIFA eWorld Cup Final at the O2 Arena in London. They are amongst the best 32 players in the world who have been competing all year to win their spot at the tournament which will crown the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Grand Champion.
“We’re very excited to form this partnership with Turtle Beach as the Club expands its esports strategy,” said Damian Willoughby, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at Manchester City. “Both Marcus and Kai are at the top of their game and watching them compete throughout the season has been great, culminating in their qualification to the FIFA eWorld Cup. We are looking forward to working with Turtle Beach and their high-quality equipment to enhance gaming experiences for our players.”
