Samsung Electronics America is now the Official Computer Memory Hardware Devices Partner for the North American-based esports organization CLG, the two companies revealed earlier today. As part of this agreement, the CLG Performance Center will be upgraded with Samsung NVMe memory solutions including the 980 Pro SSD.

In addition, Samsung is now also the official Presenting Partner for the CLG Amateur Competition Platform “Samsung Open Tournament Series.” The company will be responsible for all marketing assets throughout the livestreaming of the series on the CLG Twitch channel. The newfound partnership will also result in brand integration with player channels across various platforms including Twitter, Instagram, and Twitch.

Samsung Open Tournament Series commences April 24

Samsung has announced that the first Open Tournament Series will take place on April 24. Amateurs will compete in the popular esports title League of Legends but fan-voted games will also be added to the mix throughout the monthly tournaments.

Sweepstakes and promotions were also mentioned in the announcement, though no exact details were revealed and it’s unclear if viewers will also have an opportunity to win prizes. According to the company, Samsung products will be given as prizes to participants as part of the several promotions planned to take place throughout 2021.

Check out the video below for a sneak preview of the kind of action you can expect later this month.
