Counter Logic Gaming recently announced the addition of CLG Red to its family of teams, believing in the growth of eSports for both men and women whether as fans or players. Millions of men and women are both watching and playing online competitive eSports titles. CLG Red is one of the most accomplished female teams in the world with six world championship title while playing under Ubinited. A few months ago, Intel saw the potential for Ubinited to become even better role models with their support, so that the team could fully devote its time to training and practice. We are happy to announce that Intel will be continuing this partnership with the team under the CLG Red brand to help the team meet their goals and inspire female gamers around the world.
“Intel is committed to eSports and committed to diversity. CLG Red is the perfect combination of these and Intel intends to be their partner for as long as we can.”
-Lee Machen, Director, Consumer Software, Intel Corporation.
In January, Intel announced a major diversity initiative targeted at making both the company and the tech industry as a whole reflect the diversity of the world. They have been continually making major investments in a number of areas in order to create more opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities.
Intel is known as one of the leading tech companies in the world, but they are also long time supporters of eSports. Intel has been sponsoring one of the longest running and most prestigious tournament series - the Intel Extreme Masters. Just next week, the 10th season of the Intel Extreme Masters will start in Shenzhen, China.
With Intel's background in the tech industry, their commitment to diversity, and long history of supporting eSports - we cannot think of a better sponsor than Intel to have on board with CLG Red.
Welcome to the family Intel.
