This weekend seems to be the time for partnerships, as Ubisoft announced a brand-new partnership with Lenovo Legion to become the official PC and monitor sponsor for Rainbow Six Siege Pro League and Majors. Like most partnerships of this caliber, Lenovo Legion will be providing the gear for all of their tournaments starting with the Season 7 Finals happening at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City Hotel & Casino from May 19th-20th. There's not a lot to say here other than it's nice to see the tournaments secure gear so they can move forward. Here are a few quotes from the press release this week on the new partnership.
"Forming partnerships is an important part of Lenovo's gaming strategy. With Ubisoft, we share a deep commitment in supporting the professional esports community and gaming fanbase," said Jeff Meredith, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Lenovo's Consumer PCs and Smart Devices. "Combining Lenovo's consumer technology expertise with Ubisoft's competitive and immersive content was a natural fit to offer gaming enthusiasts a best-in-class gaming and viewing experience."
"The signing of this key partnership with Lenovo Legion is a clear signal that the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Pro League is reaching maturity, now attracting major partners while continuously growing," said Geoffroy Sardin, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Ubisoft EMEA. "We cannot wait to unfold the extent of this partnership during our key events throughout the year, for instance at the Six Major Paris this August."
