Tech company Lenovo just announced on April 2 that it is now the official sponsor for Resurgence, a local esports organisation.
Resurgence is one of the largest esports organisations in Singapore, having competed in over 60 tournaments including the 2018 Asian Games, with 36 podium finishes to their name.
As part of the sponsorship, Lenovo will be providing Resurgence with 12 Legion T530 tower desktops (worth S$1,299), from Lenovo’s Legion brand for esports and gaming, as well as monetary support for upgrades to Resurgence’s headquarters and training facility based in Woodlands.
According to Lenovo, this strategic partnership is in line with its gaming strategy to broaden the reach of their Legion brand.
Eddie And, General Manager of Lenovo Singapore said, “We are thrilled to partner with Resurgence. Lenovo is committed to gaming and is constantly innovating to ensure our Legion devices offer an unparalleled gaming experience. This partnership is our way of extending our passion and continuous investment in gaming to the wider eSports community.”
Resurgence has also been making steady investments into developing its player’s capabilities, having gone into another partnership with Singtel in March 2019. The organisation will also be representing Singapore in the newly-formed esports category at the 2019 SEA Games.
“There are a lot of common values shared by both Resurgence and Lenovo. For one, we share the belief in pushing limits until they shatter. It is a huge honour to be recognized and endorsed by such a premier global brand,” Jayf Soh, founder and owner of Resurgence, says.
The 2019 SEA Games will be taking place in the Philippines around the end of the year and there are currently five titles confirmed so far. They are Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Arena of Valor, Dota 2, Starcraft II, and Tekken 7. Resurgence is expected to take part in the first round of local qualifiers happening later this month.
