RESPAWN Become Official Gaming Furniture Partner Across All Teams at MGG

RESPAWN, a gaming chair and desk brand backed by the second largest commercial furniture company (HNI Corporation, $HNI) in North America, is further expanding into the esports market by becoming the official gaming furniture partner for all of Misfits Gaming Group (MGG) teams and influencers

Each team member and influencer will receive a RESPAWN chair of their choice across all three franchised esports leagues: Riot Games’ League of Legends European Championship (Misfits Gaming), Activision-Blizzard’s Overwatch League (Florida Mayhem), Activision-Blizzard’s Call of Duty League (Florida Mutineers), as well as all Misfits Influencers.

RESPAWN has a storied history with building furniture and their high quality and ergonomically designed chairs will allow for MGG players to improve their play by being comfortable and supported at each and every moment. Chairs are crucial to a gamer’s success, and can make all the different in the performance sport. 

MGG is RESPAWN’s latest partner, who recently provided their industry-leading gaming furniture to some of the biggest events in the world including the Fortnite World Cup, World Series of Poker and many more. Since launching three years ago, RESPAWN has established relationships with some of the leaders within the gaming and esports industry including Streamlabs, NACE, Playfull and more. 

“We love that RESPAWN is making gaming chairs accessible to all, and they are readily available on Amazon and retail stores like Wal-Mart and Target,” said Justin Stefanovic, VP of Partnerships at Misfits Gaming Group. “MGG is dedicated to providing the absolute best experience to our players and fans, and we have plans for some really cool unique stuff coming down the line”

“Misfits diverse involvement across multiple esports scenes and leagues made them the perfect candidate for RESPAWN to partner with in 2021 and continue our commitment to the esports space,” said Alex Gonzalez, Marketing Manager at RESPAWN Products.  “We’re looking forward to outfitting their South Florida headquarters and office in Berlin, and providing gaming furniture to all of their teams and players, including the Florida Mutineers and Florida Mayhem.”
