FRISCO, Texas — May 15, 2019 — Complexity Gaming, one of North America’s most elite and longest standing esports organizations, today announced a partnership with MillerCoors, which designates Miller Lite as the exclusive alcoholic beverage of Complexity.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome MillerCoors to the Complexity family,” said Daniel Herz, Chief Revenue Officer, Complexity Gaming. “The company’s desire to dig-in and learn fans’ wants and needs makes MillerCoors an ideal partner. Together, we will take the time to truly invest in the gaming community and culture, so we can better support and enhance gamers’ experiences, rather than change behaviors.”
The strategic partnership between the two organizations contains a number of exciting elements, including sponsorship of the Miller Lite Player Lounge within Complexity’s highly anticipated new headquarters, the GameStop Performance Center (GSPC). The Miller Lite Player Lounge will be a dedicated area for players to relax with one another as well as with coaches and the management team. The private space will also feature a video wall, where Complexity can watch and support other esports teams during competitions. Additionally, Miller Lite beer will be available on tap for of-age players to celebrate big wins responsibly.
Complexity and Miller Lite will also work together to develop an original content series where Complexity players and influencers will share their best esports stories. To engage the local community, Miller Lite will host watch parties at the GSPC throughout the year, where fans can come together to support Complexity teams as they compete in tournaments around the world. Complexity’s of-age players and influencers will also receive care packages with Miller Lite products and co-branded merchandise.
“We have spent the last year and half learning as much as possible about the gaming space and introducing ourselves to the community through influencer activations and live-stream media partners,” said Anup Shah, vice president of marketing for the Miller family of brands.” “While the reception we have received to this point has been nothing but positive, we want to extend our presence in an authentic way and believe that Complexity is the right partner to help us do that.”
This partnership with MillerCoors exemplifies Complexity’s dedication to advancing the esports industry and creating meaningful esports partnerships. As MillerCoors makes its most significant investment in the esports space, Complexity will help MillerCoors navigate the complex landscape and better understand where the alcoholic beverage company can grow as an organic part of the community. The partnership will emphasize the two companies shared focus on family, celebration, and original content.
