AMD Joins Razer As Co-Sponsor Of League Of Legends Cup At Multiplay

Online UK- and EU-wide pre-qualifiers announced along with a dedicated stage, spectator seating and turn-up-and-play area at Multiplay's Insomnia 49

Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced AMD, a world leader in semiconductor design innovation, has joined Razer as co-sponsor of the Multiplay Insomnia 49 (i49) League of Legends (LoL) tournament. Additional financial consideration from AMD added to Razer´s contribution brings the total LoL tournament purse to £10,000 - the largest prize pool currently promised at i49.

As with the previous Razer League of Legends Cup, there will be an online pre-qualifier for the UK, with a live final taking place at the Curry´s PC World Gaming Bunker on Saturday, 10th August, 2013. Teams will battle for their share of high-end Razer gaming peripherals at the live final, as well as free entry to i49 and a place on the League of Legends TUP area using high-end AMD machines.

This year´s bigger prize pool at the i49 LoL contest is expected to attract significantly more interest from outside of the UK than before. To accommodate broader participation, in addition to the UK live rounds, an online-only EU-wide tournament for non-UK teams is planned. The top three teams from the online contest will win entry to i49 and a place on the Razer League of Legends stand, where they will play on tournament-grade machines supplied by AMD.

“We are very pleased to have AMD join us in sponsoring League of Legends tournament at i49,“ said Darren Roberts, Razer sales manager UK. ”We know so many of the players and teams are already huge Razer fans, and AMD is enabling some of the fastest gaming machines in the world, so it made sense to partner-up and bring the players the best peripherals on the best PCs. We are thrilled with how the tournament has grown in such a short space of time and we look forward to bringing an amazing event to i49.”

“AMD has always been committed to delivering the very best to gamers, be it through sheer speed, wealth of features or affordable pricing. By joining with Razer for League of Legends, AMD is supplying the very best technology right where it´s needed, giving players an ultra-smooth experience without breaking the bank or the fusebox,“ said Iain Bristow, AMD Northern European Marketing Manager.

Multiplay CEO Craig Fletcher said: “Multiplay are thrilled to announce Razer and AMD as the headline sponsors for the League of Legends tournament at Insomnia 49 this summer. The tournament is hugely popular attracting teams from all over Europe and with the turn-up-and-play area it means they don´t have to bring their PC´s with them - Razer and AMD have got it covered! With a £10,000 prize pot and loads of prizes up for grabs before the event, I´d encourage teams to register and enter as soon as possible so they don´t miss out.”
