IRVINE, Calif.—Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, and Spanish Team Queso, the first mobile-only esports team, today announced a new strategic partnership. The two-year deal will see Team Queso using the Razer Phone in their competitive games, as well as other Razer peripherals and equipment.
The Razer Phone, the world’s first smartphone designed for gaming, is the perfect handset for high-level mobile esports. The 120hz display, its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM give players the smoothest, lag-free gaming experience, essential for competitive mobile esports.
Team Queso competes in multiple different disciplines, including Clash Royale, Vainglory, Arena of Valor and Hearthstone, and number among their ranks some of the best national, continental and global players. Founded in 2017, with high profile teams and players from around the world, Team Queso are the current ESWC Paris Clan Wars champions, as well as strong favorites for the Vainglory8 League and a team to watch with Arena of Valor.
“This partnership with Team Queso marks a new milestone in Razer’s rich history as pioneer of esports,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Competitive mobile esports is what the Razer Phone was designed for and I look forward to seeing Team Queso’s players dominating the tournament circuit.”
“We’re very excited to partner with Razer for the next two years as official gear supplier for Team Queso” says Alvaro ‘Alvaro845’ G. Buitrago, CEO of Team Queso. “Our organization was born in 2017 as the first mobile-focused esports team, and a few months later the Razer Phone was launched as the first smartphone designed for and by gamers. I couldn’t imagine a better match to foster mobile esports in the upcoming years.”
As part of the sponsorship deal, Razer will also supply mice, keyboards, headsets and surfaces to Team Queso players, putting pro-tournament grade equipment at the fingertips and on the heads of some of the world’s top players

ABOUT TEAM QUESO:
Team Queso is the first eSports team exclusively focused on mobile gaming. It was created with the conviction that Mobile Gaming is the future of the competitive scene in an increasingly connected world, where millions of people have the means to access said scene without the need for specific devices or high-end computers. We know that on-line gaming brings people from all over the world together and doing so on mobile devices allows us to meet in person and gather together to play anywhere and anytime.
We are a group of core gamers who are committed to what we do and work hard to make of Team Queso a team that stands out both in national and international competitions, but above all, we really enjoy doing so. We have outstanding players both in the national and international scene and we have several distribution channels that allow us to reach more than 7.5 million people, through the YouTube channel of our co-owners, Alvaro845 and WithZack, as well as the channels of our players. We also have excellent professionals in different fields to make the most out of all their skills.
We started with a game that has been pioneering in the mobile competitive scene. We are talking about Vainglory, which already has a community involved in the numerous existing competitions and have distributed over one million dollars in prizes during 2016 and 2017. Not only that, but also a game such as Clash Royale, which received the “best game of 2016” award in both the AppStore and the Google Play Store. Moreover, Clash Royale is beginning to position itself as an incredibly promising competitive game with tournaments such as the King’s Cup in which $300,000 were given in prizes or the CCGS where a total of $1 million has been distributed.
We started with titles we know very well and got us to love the Mobile Gaming Hispanic community. But we also had the vocation to grow and become international, for that same reason we set our sights on more games like the successful MOBA of Tencent, Arena of Valor, or Hearthstone. Disciplines that will allow us to broaden our horizons, enjoy and share these games with our fans and players.
