3N2, an Orlando-based designer and manufacturer of custom apparel and footwear, has been named an official sponsor of Armada, Full Sail University’s collegiate esports organization. Over the course of the multi-year partnership, 3N2 will serve as the exclusive provider of custom gaming jerseys, apparel, footwear and accessories to all of Armada’s esports teams.
With the support and involvement of Full Sail University students, faculty, staff, and graduates, Full Sail Armada teams compete across a variety of games throughout the year including Overwatch, League of Legends, Hearthstone, and more. In addition to its core sponsorship, 3N2 will design and manufacture Armada fan gear, be featured in Armada marketing materials, and help co-market gaming events at “The Fortress.”
The Fortress is home to esports on Full Sail University's campus. Designed to host everything from friendly campus game play and full competitive collegiate tournaments, to professional level events, this unique venue is the largest collegiate esports arena in the country. It features capacity for 500+ fans, 10 million pixels of LED wall to support dynamic visual presentations and graphics, and a concert-level PA system.
3N2 will fulfill its sponsorship role via 3N2 Game Gear, a division focused exclusively on custom esports jerseys and other gaming apparel and accessories. 3N2 Game Gear is unique in providing 100% customizable gear to the esports community. This means that each piece of custom gaming apparel is cut and sewn at production time, allowing for intricate wrap-around designs that flow fluidly across seams, doing away with ugly breaks in colors and patterns. Highly specialized inks are also employed to produce intensely vibrant colors that are dyed directly into fabrics to eliminate peeling, cracking, and picking.
Full Sail University’s VP and Creative Director Craig Daily stated, “The team at 3N2 was exceptionally skilled at bringing the designs we created to life for both the Armada team and spectator jerseys.” He further added, “It’s an exciting time for our student esports athletes, fans and the community to rally in support of Armada. Knowing the gear is of exceptional quality, we look forward to seeing the jerseys created by 3N2 proudly worn during tournament play, on campus and across the country.”
3N2 CEO Sean Murphy feels the partnership with Full Sail is a perfect fit. “With 3N2 Game Gear we were one of the first to commit and invest in custom gaming jerseys and apparel. I can’t think of a more fitting sponsorship opportunity than with a true esports pioneer like Full Sail. They are the model for what esports can be at the university level with the best venue in the country, if not the world. We couldn’t be happier.”
Murphy is equally excited by the prospects the partnership holds for Full Sail students. As part of its agreement, 3N2 Game Gear will provide Full Sail students with research, internship, and post-graduate employment opportunities. “We didn’t have to be sold on this. We feel fortunate to have an avenue for getting in front of Full Sail students. Its grads are defining what esports will be in the years to come and we’re hoping they’ll help 3N2 Game Gear define what it looks like.”
