Asus Republic of Gamers enters partnership with ESPN at EXP e-sports gaming series

Friday 12 July 2019 | 10:01 CET | News

Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) will be the official hardware sponsor of EXP, an e-sports gaming series created by ESPN. The EXP summer tournaments started on 11 July with a Pro-Am Apex Legends Exhibition that will feature players from across the gaming community, from influencers and fans to celebrities and e-sports champions. Following it up is the EXP Invitational – Apex Legends at X Games Minneapolis on 2 and 3 August, where 20 of the best Apex Legends squads will fight for a USD 150,000 prize pool.

ROG is proud to have sponsored ESPN’s inaugural EXP event in May at the Collegiate Esports Championship and will continue supporting and supplying competition-level gaming hardware for both of the upcoming tournaments. Tournament participants will compete on ROG Strix GL12CX gaming desktops and ROG Swift PG248Q gaming monitors provided by Asus.

Elevating esports

The upcoming events underscore both ROG and ESPN’s dedication to bringing professional esports to a wider platform. These tournaments will be available to watch live on multiple digital platforms, including the ESPN app. A tape-delayed show focused on key moments and storylines will air across ESPN and ABC linear networks after each event, making this a solid first step in familiarising mainstream audiences with pro gaming.

Tournament participants in the upcoming EXP series will play on ROG gear designed for competitive high-FPS gaming.
