iBUYPOWER Announces Partnership with UC Irvine
City of Industry, CA – March 31, 2016 – iBUYPOWER announces its partnership with University of California – Irvine to introduce an official eSports initiative.
We at iBUYPOWER are firm believers in the strong future of eSports and its potential as a path to success for students across the country. In order to further our quest to help elevate collegiate eSports and support the students who dedicate their time and talents, we are very excited to announce the UCI eSports Arena powered by iBUYPOWER.
“UCI has one of the top competitive gaming clubs in the nation and deserves top-of-the-line equipment,” said Darren Su, vice president of iBUYPOWER. “Through this partnership, we can not only ensure that players have the tools necessary to play their best, but also allow students to be their best through scholarship and research opportunities. Our dream is that one day e-sports will be a tool for students across the country to achieve their professional, academic and personal success. Partnering with UCI is a huge step toward making that dream a reality.”
iBUYPOWER will be providing 80 state-of-the-art PCs equipped with the latest Intel technologies, along with additional support for scholarships and related program costs. The UCI eSports Arena will be the 3rd university eSports arena built and the first available to the general public. The new arena will be created by renovating the Zot Zone, a 3,500 square foot recreational space in the Student Center. Renovations will take place over the summer with a grand opening planned for fall of this year.
