Vertagear and University of California, Irvine Forms a New Alliance

Los Angeles, CA. August 5th, 2016

The UCI eSports Arena will be equipped with Vertagear’s comfort and design.

Today, we welcome our new alliance, the University of California, Irvine. The brand new eSports Arena (opening in Fall 2016) at UCI will use Custom-designed Vertagear Racing Series Chair SL5000 for each gaming station. Students and players can strategize, improve, and contend comfortably with the support of the ergonomic chairs.

The UCI eSports Arena will not only focus on competitive online games, but also computer gaming science, digital arts, computer science, engineering, anthropology, law, medicine, neuroscience and behavior create a strong foundation for research and inquiry related to gaming. Vertagear is pleased to be a part of this opportunity to ascend the eSports and gaming community into the appropriate direction.

“UCI is one of the top Universities in both academics and gaming, nationwide. We’re ecstatic to contribute and create a great environment for students and players to game and compete. With our Vertagear chairs, everyone at the UCI Sports Arena will be able to learn, practice, and compete comfortably. Vertagear and UCI will continue to work on expanding the world of eSports” – Henry Huynh (Marketing Manager)

"UCI eSports is excited to partner with Vertagear to provide our community the best gaming chairs in the world. Vertagear shares our aspirations to push the limits of quality and innovation as we lead the way in collegiate eSports." – Mark Deppe (Acting Director UCI eSports)
