Copenhagen, Denmark – February 15, 2022 - Heroic Group, a leading European esports organization, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with one of the leading premium audio brands in the world, EPOS.
EPOS will provide Heroic with the best audio equipment to continue delivering top performance across all game titles. The partnership covers EPOS’s top of the line headsets, microphones, as well as other audio peripherals to equip Heroic’s headquarters, content studios, and boot camp facilities.
As part of the agreement, Heroic will carry the EPOS logo on its jersey and other stage wear as a main sponsor, bringing the EPOS brand and power of audio to millions of esports enthusiasts worldwide through its participation in the world’s most elite leagues and tournaments. During EPOS’s product development, Heroic pro players will participate as testers in a special program, working closely with EPOS engineers and giving feedback on new products. EPOS and Heroic will also jointly produce content around Heroic’s pro teams, showcasing how great audio peripherals enable players to perform at their best.
“One of the most important pieces of equipment a professional esports player need is a great headset. We love that EPOS has such a sophisticated portfolio of audio products and innovative technology.” Says Oliver Valsgaard, Head of Esports at Heroic. “We are also looking forward to working closely together with EPOS, to constantly develop better audio experiences for all gamers and esports players out there”
“In esports info is everything, therefore sound is everything. Hearing the opposing team before they hear us is a huge advantage. A second extra to prepare. To strategize. Call plays. Pre-aim. Good vs bad sound is the difference between winning and losing. That’s why we’re happy to welcome EPOS as a new sponsor. This partnership will help us bring our game to the next level and give us a competitive edge” says René “TeSeS” Madsen, professional CS:GO player for Heroic.
EPOS will become another major partner for Heroic, following the likes Red Bull and Aker Biomarine, as Heroic continues to grow its partnership slate with great brands to supercharge its pro teams this year. When entering the CS:GO, PUBG and Rainbow Six pro scene, great audio is key in order to pick up on all audio cues and thereby be one step ahead of your competitors at all times. By partnering up with EPOS, Heroic’s pro teams can strive for perfection as EPOS’ premium audio equipment lets them unlock their full potential.
Isik Aysev, Chief Commercial Officer for Heroic, said: “I am thrilled to kick off our partnership with EPOS, as part of our strategy to build authentic and sustainable partnerships to grow the esports ecosystem. Signing a premium brand like EPOS is always a great opportunity for us to provide value to our players and to our fans.”
Maja Sand-Grimnitz, Director of Global Marketing, Gaming at EPOS, said: ”We’re really excited to start our partnership with Heroic and provide their players with premium audio equipment for gaming. As two strong brands with roots in Denmark, Heroic and EPOS brand are a great fit, and we are looking forward to unleashing the power of audio to support Heroics journey to the top this year.”
