Chair manufacturers Secretlab has continued to grow its presence in the esports industry, recently adding Team Vitality to the list of esports organizations the company has partnered with.
The partnership will see Secretlab provide custom-made gaming chairs for the French-based esports organization. So far, both parties have worked together and have unveiled the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Team Vitality Edition chair.
While it is similar to the TITAN Evo 2022 model, the Vitality edition has some ergonomic upgrades, with the most striking feature being the organization’s branding and the slogan #VFORVICTORY.
Moving forward, Team Vitality roster and facilities will only make use of the chairs provided by Secretlab.
It has been decided that these new models will not be exclusive to Team Vitality, allowing fans and other gamers to experience the comfort that comes with it. As a result, the Team Vitality edition chair is already available for pre-order in the US, UK, and Europe.
Speaking on the multi-year partnership, Team Vitality CEO Nicolas Maurer shared his excitement about the partnership and pointed out the importance of providing the athletes with the best quality product.
“We are really excited to announce our partnership with Secretlab,” he said.
“We believe in the importance of supplying our athletes with the highest quality products to support their health, well-being, and competitive development.
“It’s also great to collaborate with a brand like Secretlab who can take our branding and create something bespoke and special for not just our athletes, but also the Team Vitality community.”
The Senior Manager of Partnerships at Secretlab, Beatrice Wee, also had some words to say after the announcement.
“Team Vitality is definitely well set for an action-packed year with their latest roster movements, and they’re now getting the biggest upgrade in gear with our award-winning chairs — ensuring their players consistently deliver peak performances,” Wee said.
France’s first esports club has been on the scene since 2013, winning several national and international championships. With new-improved gear, the organization will fancy its chances of adding a few more championships to the overall tally.
Team Vitality’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) roster has already secured a spot in the 2022 BLAST Premier Spring Finals. They will be competing against seven other teams for almost 50% of the $425,000 prize pool and direct seeding to the BLAST Premier World Final 2022.
The Spring Finals are scheduled to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, and will run from June 15-19.
Meanwhile, the result of their final game in the European Regional Major Ranking (RMR) will determine if they make it to the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 or not. According to the esports betting sites, they are favorites to win against MOUZ.
Winning either tournament will guarantee their CS: GO roster a spot in the World Final, scheduled to hold in December. In 2020, the team had back-to-back victories at IEM Beijing and BLAST Premier Fall.
In 2021, Team Vitaly finished third in the World Final behind Natus Vincere and Gambit Esports. They have been very impressive in recent years, solidifying their position as one of the best teams in the world.
