T1, a South Korean organization well-known for its League of Legends roster, is today teaming up with an industry behemoth, Samsung. With this partnership, all teams and players located in the training center at T1 headquarters in Seoul will train on Samsung's latest curved screens, the Odyssey G9 and G7.
“We are proud to partner with T1, the leader in professional esports, helping them in their continued success and global growth as official display partner," said Hyesung Ha, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung, "Our line-up of Odyssey monitors provides the latest in gaming monitor technology with lightning-fast speed, comfortable curvature and a sleek design, offering professional esports gamers the competitive edge they need to make every split second count.”
T1 is currently sponsored by several giants, including Twitch, Nike, and German car manufacturer BMW — a list on which you can now add Samsung.
“I am excited for Samsung to sponsor T1, providing our teams with best-in-class monitors," said Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok, "I look forward to practicing on the new Odyssey model once we move into our new T1 HQ.”
Just like the Spring Split finals, which were supposed to be played in Budapest, Riot Games ultimately decided that the Summer Split finals won't be organized in Malmö, Sweden as they were initially planned.
