“Strengthening our collaboration with CLG gives Newegg the opportunity to become even more entrenched in the esports movement, connecting with an enthusiastic fan base that aligns particularly well with our customer base,” said Andrew Choi, Senior Brand Manager at Newegg, in a release. “We’re excited to make the latest gaming tech available to CLG’s players, and we look forward to another year of bringing spirited esports competition to fans across the globe.”
The partnership will see the brand integration of Newegg on all of Counter Logic Gaming’s jerseys, which includes its League of Legends and Fortnite teams. The esports organization’s performance center and other digital platforms will showcase the logo placement as well.
Through this collaboration, Counter Logic Gaming’s players will have the opportunity to utilize the latest gaming PCs, monitors, and peripherals that are offered by Newegg. In addition, the organization will release a limited edition jersey, featuring Newegg branding, that the League of Legends teams will wear during live matches.

“When our partnership with Newegg first began, we wanted to build programs together that were mutually beneficial and we couldn’t be happier that Newegg has seen the value of our partnership and decided to expand its affiliation with CLG to our League of Legends franchise,” said Dan Fleeter, COO of Counter Logic Gaming. “The expansion of this partnership allows each player to choose the exact equipment they believe will provide the best opportunity to succeed and we see this as a gamechanger for the industry.”
Newegg will also become the presenting partner for all of the broadcasts of CLG Red, one of the most successful fully female Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams. Brand activation events will be hosted at a variety of community events as well, where fans can test and evaluate products sold by Newegg.
Newegg joins Counter Logic Gaming’s existing partnerships with brands like Mountain Dew’s Game Fuel, Squarespace, Spectrum, GT Omega, Flexfit, and Twitch.
