RIYADH-: The Saudi Esports Federation (SEF) today announced that Razer, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers, is to be the gaming gear partner at Gamers8: The Land of Heroes, the biggest gaming and esports festival worldwide.
This is the second year in a row that SEF and Razer have collaborated for Gamers8, following the successful partnership last summer. Organized by SEF, Gamers8: The Land of Heroes runs for eight weeks from July 6 and features elite esports tournaments at the purpose-built venue at Boulevard Riyadh City, as well as live concerts and numerous activities and attractions.
Razer will provide premium hardware from their range of gaming peripherals for VIPs and influencers during Gamers8, as well as having the products showcased during the esports competitions together with the company’s well-known logo on the official broadcast. Just like last year, a unique Gamers8 x Razer collection will be sold exclusively on-site during the festival, with items from the company’s signature collection also available for purchase.
In addition, SEF and Razer will organize raffles for Gamers8: The Land of Heroes attendees, and fans on social media, to win some exclusive gaming gear.
