Today, Lenovo North America announced a local partnership with Team
SoloMid (TSM), the premier digital gaming platform that includes gaming
strategy sites, world class influencers and championship esports teams.
The partnership is Lenovo North America’s first official esports
sponsorship, and the investment will further enhance the company’s focus
on the gaming industry.

As the exclusive PC partner of TSM’s teams and organization, Lenovo will
outfit a revolutionary, state-of-the-art, gaming lounge for players
inside TSM’s new 25,000 square foot training facility, currently under
construction in Los Angeles. With Lenovo’s support, TSM’s players will
not only be able to train and work toward competing at the highest level
possible, the organization’s content team will have access to the
technological tools necessary to produce world-class content. The Lenovo
Legion™ Lounge
will feature sleek, high-performance Lenovo gaming
PCs, complete with immersive visuals and audio. The company will also
host exclusive TSM events and giveaways throughout the year.

“With the esports audience projected to surpass NFL viewership and reach
276 million by 2022, Lenovo is excited to partner with a veteran team
that helped to elevate the popularity of esports in the U.S.,” said Matt
Zielinski, Lenovo’s President of North America, “We understand the
tremendous growth potential of this market, and this partnership is a
great complement to our investments in bringing professional-grade
gaming experiences to avid players around the world.”

For more than a decade, TSM has fielded some of the most talented and
successful professional esports teams in North America, competing across
multiple titles such as League of Legends™, Fortnite™, Smash Brothers™
and Rocket League®. In addition to its elite players, TSM has one of the
largest, most engaged fan bases in esports with nearly 80 million
followers across multiple platforms, and a network of gaming sites that
boasts over 180 million page views a month.

“For TSM, partnering with Lenovo was simple,” says Andy Dinh, Founder
and CEO of TSM. “Lenovo Legion is best in class when it comes to PCs
that are optimized for gameplay. It’s important that we believe in the
brand and products we partner with, and I want to make sure our players,
and our audience, are using the best hardware possible. TSM focuses on
excellence, and we only partner with the best. Lenovo’s history of a
commitment to high performance and quality aligns with TSM’s vision for
the future—not only for our teams, but our entire organization.”
