OVERCLOCKERS RENEWS EPIC.LAN HEADLINE SPONSORSHIP FOR 2021

2020 was an unusual year for events, however epic.LAN made the successful temporary transition to epic.WAN and continued to work closely with UK retailers Overclockers UK for the online alternatives throughout the year. After that success, the partnership has been extended for 2021, regardless of whether the events are online or offline.

The partnership also brings the return of luxury gaming chair brand noblechairs as the official chair partner for epic.LAN.

One of the partnership’s main aims is to keep people gaming together in a social environment during a time when many people have struggled in isolation and then bring people back together face-to-face to celebrate at a time when it is safe to do so. While epic.LAN’s events are online, the partnership will predominantly have a content focus and will see the Overclockers UK team joining in with a range of live shows during the epic.WAN events before returning to having a physical presence once the events return to the LAN hall.

Jon Winkle, epic.LAN Managing Director, explains “2020 certainly did not go as planned, but by working with our partners at Overclockers UK we adapted our events and continued to provide some much-needed social gaming and dedicated content. As my local retailer and as an Overclockers UK customer for around 20 years, I am really excited to be continuing to work together in 2021, whatever gaming events look like for the foreseeable future.”

Andy Welsh, Overclockers UK’s Events & Partnerships Manager, said “Whilst events may look different right now, community is still at our core, and we couldn't be happier to support epic.LAN during these times. We're all still waiting until we can hang out together (and throw bags and bags of Haribo at you) - so until that time, we’ll be joining in the fun online & hopefully bringing some goodies too!”

The next epic.LAN event takes place online from 25-28 February and features VALORANT, CS:GO, Rainbow Six Siege and Starcraft 2 as its core esports line-up. Tickets and more information can be found at www.epiclan.co.uk
