The partnership between the world’s most trusted gaming brand and the most successful esports organisation in Oceania will equip all Dire Wolves’ rosters with cutting-edge hardware and support to further empower the ANZ Esports scene.
Dire Wolves, the most successful esports team in Oceania, is pleased to reveal a partnership with world leading gaming technology brand MSI. The partnership will span all nine of Dire Wolves’ powerhouse rosters, and see MSI represented in major leagues across the region including the League of Legends Circuit Oceania (LCO). MSI will empower Dire Wolves’ players and streamers with its industry leading hardware to power their competitive performance and content creation, including displays, gaming chairs, components and more.
Dire Wolves, historically known as the best League of Legends team in Oceania, has expanded in recent years to a multi-disciplinary organisation. In February, Dire Wolves acquired legendary organisation AVANT Gaming, uniting their teams under the Dire Wolves brand and creating the ultimate Oceanic esports team. In addition to its League of Legends roster, Dire Wolves now has top performing teams in VALORANT, CS:GO, FIFA, NBA 2K, Overwatch, Rocket League, and Apex Legends. MSI will be showcased across all rosters, as well as the Dire Wolves Stream Team which is famously home to leading content creators across the ANZ region.
The partnership represents MSI’s continued commitment to supporting esports and gaming communities around the world. A mainstay in the global ecosystem for over 35 years, MSI has supported esports and gaming events, teams, and competitions of all levels including grassroots collegiate programmes through to some of the world’s largest and most prestigious leagues, tournaments and teams. The partnership with Dire Wolves will further expand the brand’s presence in Oceanic esports, which continues to thrive with the 2021 launch of the LCO, and the newly opened Spark Esports Hub in New Zealand’s iconic sport stadium, Eden Park.
Jeremy Tate, Marketing Manager ANZ, MSI shared, “It’s long been our mission at MSI to deliver the ultimate in-game advantage for esports competition, and today we take another exciting step down that path in partnership with the Dire Wolves – who share a common passion for winning and pushing the envelope of performance. In turn, MSI is thrilled today to announce our support of the Dire Wolves esports team.
The partnership offers incredible collaboration between the talented ranks at Dire Wolves paired with our award winning gaming hardware at MSI, and sets the stage to raise the bar and elevate esports to new levels within the region. The team will game and compete utilising cutting edge hardware and gaming technology from MSI, helping to unlock the very best from players when it matters most in competition and practice. This significant shared core attitude is instrumental, and allows us to innovate, outplay and drive our goals further together in esports.”
Jason Spiller, Owner, Dire Wolves, said “MSI has an incredible legacy in the esports and gaming space in every corner of the world, and we’re absolutely thrilled to have their expertise and hardware onboard across the entire wolf pack. Our teams have a jam-packed competitive calendar for the rest of the year and beyond, and knowing we have the very best hardware and support gives us the confidence to perform at the highest level, and hopefully bring home more trophies!
2021 has already been a landmark year for Oceanic esports with the launch of the LCO and the new Eden Park facility acting as a central hub for the community, and having the support of global leaders like MSI shows that the world is taking note.”
