The next big CS:GO tournament, StarLadder Major Berlin 2019, just got a big gaming partnership as Secretlab has joined on as the official gaming chair. As you might suspect from this partnership, whenever you look at the teams on stage, they'll all be sitting in customized Secretlab chairs made specifically for that tournament. One of the biggest of the year, this one will take place from August 23rd to September 8th, the first-ever to be held in Berlin, Germany, with a $1 million prize pool where the winning team will take home $500k. Here are a few quotes from the announcement by both companies involved with the deal.
"We're proud to provide our award-winning chairs to support these top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players with the best sitting experience throughout the StarLadder Berlin Major so they can deliver the best gaming showing of their lifetimes. CS:GO players today are rightfully selective about only using the best-quality gear – even tilting their keyboards to give themselves a performance edge. This is what Secretlab chairs are engineered for: To perfectly complement and support every gamer's unique sitting preference regardless of game, from the fully-adjustable armrests to the backrest – giving the best comfort and optimizing their performance." –Ian Alexander Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab
"Partnering with the world's best gaming equipment brands to support the most talented and top CS:GO players is of the utmost importance as tournament organizers. Secretlab was the clear choice as a gaming product leader; their gaming seats are of unmatched quality. Having sat on their award-winning chairs ourselves, we are confident their gaming chairs would complete every CS:GO professional's list of essential gear for a top gaming performance." — Alexander Chegrinez, Chief Business Development Officer at StarLadder
