“rAge is a significant stakeholder in the gaming industry and this partnership means together we can help grow the esports industry as a whole,” says Cambridge Mokanyane, CEO of VS Gaming.” rAge is where we play our champions league and where the best and most professional players showcase their talents, and it is this professional segment that is the main pillar of VS Gaming.”

In addition, OMEN by HP, along with Intel, Aruba and MWEB, are sponsoring the NAG LAN.

“We are inspired by the increasing role of competition in the modern gaming lifestyle, the new OMEN by HP line is built for today’s gaming community,” said David Rozzio, HP Inc. South Africa Managing Director. “OMEN by HP is bringing gamers a completely new portfolio of products this summer, leveraging customer insights from the gaming community, to give esports athletes and competitive gamers an edge. This new range will be available at the OMEN by HP store at rAge. Along with reinventing the OMEN portfolio, partnering with rAge demonstrates HP’s focus on the growth of esports in South Africa.”

“With the launch of a new, cutting-edge and comprehensive portfolio of OMEN by HP gaming products, HP is celebrating the competitive spirit that burns inside all gamers,” he added. “HP is dedicating itself to helping grow esports by investing in the culture, and our partnership with rAge is a big step in pursuing that goal.”
