FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KANSAS CITY - June 25, 2019 - High School Esports League (HSEL), the longest-running competitive gaming organization with over 1,500 partnered high schools across North America, today announced the launch of the HSEL Esports Equipment Bundle hardware program. In partnership with MAINGEAR, HSEL is offering schools that sign up for three years of esports competition six high-end gaming PCs, complete with Razer peripherals.

The Esports Equipment Bundle includes unlimited access to HSEL competitions for three years, with unlimited teams and student slots, plus six MAINGEAR VYBE gaming rigs powered by AMD Ryzen processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphics cards, and all of the other components necessary to play today and tomorrow’s esports titles at peak performance.

Aspiring esports competitors will hone their reflexes and call the shots using Razer peripherals: each Esports Equipment Bundle PC comes equipped with a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard, DeathAdder Essential mouse, and Electra V2 headset.

“The performance of Razer peripherals has been proven time and again with professional esports teams,” said Seeson Mahathavorn, Global Talent Manager for Esports at Razer. “Knowing that future champions are being born out of organizations like HSEL, we are truly motivated to support this development of talent by completing their setups with winning mice, keyboards and headsets.”

Schools interested in securing the lowest rate for HSEL league fees but who aren’t in need of PC gaming hardware can sign up for the League Pro pass for unlimited access to HSEL competition for three years, locked in at a lower price point.

“One of the biggest hurdles to running a fantastic high school esports program is making sure students have access to the hardware they need to compete at their best,” said Mason Mullenioux, co-founder and CEO of High School Esports League. “Thanks to the size of HSEL’s network of partnered schools, we have a unique opportunity to bring high-end gaming equipment to thousands of schools—affordably."

“MAINGEAR's core mission is to empower the next generation to be next," said Wallace Santos, founder and CEO of MAINGEAR. “Through this partnership with HSEL, giving thousands of students access to high performance gaming pc’s and a world class competitive platform, we will be driving the future of esports together.”
