Key elements of the OpTic x Juventus partnership will include collaborations across social media, periodic drops of limited-edition co-branded merchandise, and video content featuring events as well as popular competitors and influencers from both organizations. Live events in both the football and esports realms will also be enhanced by on-site activations from each brand as they support one another in competition.

This weekend, four creators from OpTic’s network – gaming icon Seth “Scump” Abner, OpTic CEO Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, former Call of Duty pro Anthony “Methodz” Zinni, and OpTic talent Davis “Hitch” Edwards – will embark on a journey through Turin, Italy. The quartet will immerse themselves in the Juventus atmosphere with exclusive access to the Allianz Stadium, Juventus Training Center, and Juventus Creator Lab. Fans can look forward to ongoing social media and video content from all four as they celebrate the launch of the partnership and attend a Juventus match.

Mike Armstrong, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer of Juventus Football Club:

OpTic are pioneers in their industry, have a winning spirit, and have world-renowned players and influencers connected to some of the most popular game titles on the planet. This is a unique opportunity for us to innovate together to bring something more to both fan groups.”
