Today we welcome Los Angeles Chargers running back, Gridiron Gaming Group (GGG) co-founder, and Twitch streamer Austin Ekeler to the SteelSeries family.
Austin Ekeler’s authentic passion for gaming and commitment to elite performance--on and off the field--were driving forces in asking him to become our first NFL ambassador. There’s a natural synergy: SteelSeries creates the best products for the best athletes, whether on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, or on the field.
As part of the partnership, SteelSeries will provide the new Prime line of ultra-competitive gear to Gridiron Gaming Group which was co-founded by Austin in 2020. GGG helps athletes build their gaming and streaming platform by giving them the tools needed to be successful gamers, including tech setup, streaming coaching, creative consulting, follower growth, and sponsored event activations. GGG athletes include Avonte Maddox, Mike Williams, Trent Sieg, Bryce Huff, Justin Jones, Boston Scott, Conor Daly, Tommy Kahnle, and Allisha Gray.
The Prime line of products was co-developed in collaboration with esports pros, for pros, to win championships. Austin joins an elite group of teams and brands that represent SteelSeries including FaZe Clan, Red Bull, OG, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team, SpaceStation, and more.
