Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The white jersey with copper and grey elements will pay homage to Team Vitality’s inception and growth into the biggest esports team in France with a growing global presence. The jersey drop will form the first full alternate apparel range with Team Vitality’s athletes Nicolas “Nikof” Frejavise and Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek being the face of the campaign

The jersey is available now at shop.vitality.gg 

Leading global esports organisation Team Vitality is excited to reveal its Alternate Jersey for 2021 which aims to showcase the brand’s roots in the city of Paris and export them to the world. As a symbol of culture, Paris is home to some of the best art, music and fashion in the world and Team Vitality has chosen to express the city’s lifestyle through the Alternate Jersey design.

This year the jersey is yet again white but with grey and copper stripes. Grey represents the iconic streets and monuments of Paris while the copper colour represents the trophies won by the team since Team Vitality’s inception in 2013. For the first time, the Alternate jersey is accompanied by a selection of other apparel including track pants and full-zip vest, two key pieces in sportswear and lifestyle fashion which represents the esports organisation through its colour scheme, and the inspiring city of Paris.

Developed in the heart of Paris with Team Vitality and the bustling city at the forefront, the concept behind the collection symbolises the boundless energy and creativity of Paris, and the determination and success of Team Vitality using “Vitality from Paris” as the collection’s signature. Highlighting the elite talent housed within Team Vitality and the beauty of the Parisian natives, the Alternate Jersey and collection feature some of Team Vitality’s best esports players.

Showcasing the collection includes Nicolas “Nikof” Frejavise, a recognisable Fortnite star who has been competing under Team Vitality and displays his impressive skillset within Fortnite. The collection also features Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek, a legendary athlete and accomplished star who made a name for himself in the League of Legends scene and is still improving and developing with Team Vitality’s LEC team.

To celebrate the launch of the new Alternate Jersey and collection, Team Vitality is hosting the “Vitality Alternate Launch”, an event dedicated to its fans, taking place today in the heart of Paris, at Team Vitality headquarters, V.Hive. Joining fans for the special event will be Team Vitality players and ambassadors who will be wearing the jersey and other items from the collection. As part of the event, fans will have the opportunity to participate in the reconstruction of the campaign visuals, allowing them to imitate Nikof and Selfmade who are the face of the jersey and Alternate collection.

The new jersey also cements another milestone in Team Vitality’s partnership with adidas, which has resulted in the launch of several innovative and successful products. Earlier this year, Team Vitality introduced its 2021 Pro Jersey, the first adidas jersey designed from the ground up for an esports team. All elements of the jersey: the collar, the sleeves, the pattern … were chosen and worked on by both brands.

The Alternate Jersey 2021 highlights the duality of Team Vitality: with performance on one side including state-of-the-art technology and quality clothing and lifestyle on the other side with unique, innovative and creative designs.

Since its inception in 2013, Team Vitality has grown into one of the biggest esports organisations in the world and home to some of the biggest and best esports players. This year Team Vitality has continued to build upon its esports legacy, most recently announcing its international expansion into Brazil and India, as well as partnerships with Socios and Aldi.

We’re thrilled to announce the return of three long-term partners for the LEC 2022 season.

As we prepare for the start of LEC Spring 2022, we’ve been working with our partners to ensure that we offer the best possible viewing experience for our fans around the world. Today, we’re proud to announce that three of our long-term partners will be returning to support the 2022 season.

The first of these partnerships is our Official Energy Drink Supplier, Red Bull. This will be our fourth consecutive year working with Red Bull and we can’t wait to build on our partnership throughout the year.

Red Bull will excite the LEC followership by creating content activations that will appear throughout LEC events and also promoting grassroots LoL esports over the next 12 months. Further, Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, in which fans can compete against each other, is returning for 2022.

Next, we are ecstatic to confirm that Warner Music will once again be joining us as an Official Music Partner for 2022. Over the four years we’ve been working with Warner, they’ve introduced some truly amazing artists to LEC fans and we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for the year ahead.

Warner Music was instrumental in powering the 2022 LEC promotional video with Chrissy Constanza, and will be bringing a similar calibre of talent to LEC content going forward.

Finally, we’re excited to confirm that Secretlab will be returning for a multi-year partnership as the Official Gaming Chair Partner for the LEC and EU Masters! From chairs inspired by K/DA’s music releases and the Ruination event to the premiere of Arcane on Netflix, Secretlab has been a constant in the League of Legends universe, celebrating major League milestones since 2019. As the Official Gaming Chair at regional leagues and global tournaments including the World Championship, the Mid-Season Invitational, and All-Star, esports teams have gotten familiar with Secretlab chairs and we’re delighted to have them return to support the LEC for the third year running with the new Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022.

Additionally, the exclusive Secretlab x League of Legends Tilted emote that was first dropped during Worlds 2021 will be making its return during LEC 2022 – stay tuned to Secretlab’s social media pages to find out how you can get yours.

“LEC has constantly kept us on the edge of our seats with mind blowing plays each year. With the induction of increasingly younger talents across the league, following an action-packed year which made LEC 2021 the most watched season of all time, we’re expecting even more epic faceoffs in the upcoming season and the teams can count on being supported by the world’s best gaming chairs in their battle for a spot at Worlds,” says Beatrice Wee, Senior Manager, Global Partnerships, Secretlab. “There’s no compromise when it comes to equipping Europe’s best.”

With these amazing partners alongside us, we can’t wait for what will no doubt be the most exciting year of LEC action yet. Will MAD Lions continue their reign at the top, or will old favourites G2 Esports or Fnatic rise back to the top spot with their refreshed rosters?

As part of this collaboration, Gambit, with the support of EXMO, will in detail introduce the possibilities of cryptocurrencies to the esports fans, and will also help to debunk many myths in the industry.

“Many of our players have already become crypto-enthusiasts – cryptocurrencies have been a part of their portfolio for quite some time already, along with stocks and real estate. That’s why I support this partnership which we launch together with one of the most tech-savvy cryptocurrency exchanges on the market. Welcome to the Gambit family, EXMO!” Konstantin Pikiner, Sports Director of Gambit Esports, said.

“We are pleased to welcome EXMO as the General Partner of our AS Monaco Gambit Dota 2 & Fortnite teams.

“Cooperation with a successful esports team has been in our plans for a while. Therefore, we are delighted to start our partnership with Gambit Esports, one of the most successful esports organizations in the world. With our joint initiative, we intend to highlight how much esports and cryptocurrencies have in common: both areas have become a part of modern life, and the last couple of years have only strengthened public interest in these industries. For traders, just like for esport athletes, such personal qualities as strategic thinking, courage and speed of reaction to changes are of great importance. Together with Gambit, we want to create many interesting opportunities for our audiences,” Sergey Zhdanov, CEO of EXMO, said.
