Turtle Beach teams up with NBA 2K Champions

Turtle Beach, the peripheral brand, has created a new partnership with the reigning NBA 2K League champions, Wizards District Gaming (WDG). With this agreement, WDG’s teams and players will be using Turtle Beach’s flagship Elite Pro 2 headset.

“Wizards District Gaming is a clear powerhouse in the competitive NBA 2K League, and we are honored to be partnering with a team as talented as they are,” said Ryan Dell, SVP of Global Marketing at Turtle Beach. “We craft our gear to a level of precision and performance so that champions remain champions, and we look forward to WDG continuing to win more games in our Elite Pro 2 headsets.”

Wizards District Gaming are the reigning NBA 2K League Champions after defeating Warriors Gaming Squad in four games during the 2020 NBA 2K League Finals. This was the first-ever championship win for the team. The franchise, owned by Monumental Sports & Entertainment, is the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Washington Wizards. “To compete in the NBA 2K League, our level of play in match after match has to be extraordinary and Turtle Beach helps ensure we hit that high bar,” said Andrew McNeill, Director of Esports, Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to many more victories and championships with Turtle Beach at our side.”

This partnership continues the trend of large companies teaming up with eSports champions to continue to bring additional funding to teams and competitions having a positive effect for the continued growth of eSports as a whole.
