Knights - News - Article
It’s HyperX-Mas in February for the Knights

PITTSBURGH (February 11th, 2019) – While most people are preparing for spring, the Knights are celebrating with the gift that keeps on giving. Gaming giant, HyperX, has sponsored the Pittsburgh Knights. They will provide the Knights with world-class headsets, keyboards, mice, mouse pads, and internal memory products. HyperX has sponsored some of the top gamers and content creators in the industry, including SHROUD, Pokimane, RUSH, and even Pittsburgh’s own Juju Smith-Schuster – wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
HyperX believes that, no matter what you play or how you play it, We’re All Gamers. From the pros, to the fans at home, we all are the same. With this belief in mind, HyperX creates all types of gear accessible to all types of gamers. Gaming gear is a quintessential part of the gaming experience. Especially for professionals, it can make or break how they play the game.

“When you’re playing CounterStrike, for example, being able to pick up on every little sound and clue from your opponent is so important”, explains James O’Connor, Knights president and former professional gamer and coach. “Having a great headset is a real advantage”.
And in the world of gaming gear, HyperX is the brand for professional and casual gamers alike. Because of this, the Knights are thrilled about the sponsorship from HyperX. “I’ve been around the block in esports, and HyperX has been the most desirable endemic company to work with” says Knights CEO, Rob Lee. “It’s an absolute pleasure to have our brand alongside HyperX”.
Similarly, HyperX is happy to come on as an official sponsor of the Knights. “It’s great to include the Pittsburgh Knights into our HyperX family of influencers” said Daniel Kelley, HyperX director of corporate marketing. “The city of Pittsburgh has a storied history in sports and we are excited to support the Knights on their journey.”
HyperX is a division of Kingston Technology, the world’s largest independent memory manufacturer. Started in 2002, HyperX has grown to create multiple lines of gaming equipment that combine top-of-the-line, superior performance, and aesthetic designs that encompass the vibrant energy of gaming. Along with their sponsored players, HyperX is the main sponsor of Intel Extreme Masters and Dreamhack festivals. To learn more about HyperX, go to www.hyperxgaming.com.
