Connecticut based Borderland Gaming (BLGaming) will sign a one year sponsorship agreement with Eric 'Juicebox' Albino of Arizona this upcoming Saturday, August 14th. The signing will take place at the console (XBox and Playstation 3) fighting event 'Summer Jam' in the Sheraton Suites - Philadelphia Airport located at 4101 B Island Avenue in Philadelphia.
In the past few years, competitive gaming has become a staple in youth entertainment - with a single online streamed Tournament attracting upwards of 40,000 viewers and in some cases, coverage on national networks such as G4TV.
Juicebox is widely recognized in the Super Street Fighter 4 community as the best Abel player in North America (Abel is one of the many selectable characters in CAPCOM's Super Street Fighter 4 title) and he will once again be showcasing his talents at this weekend's event. It is the hope of BLGaming that this sponsorship will be a positive influence on competitive gamers everywhere, showing that you can travel around the world and earn money doing what you love - if you work hard enough.
This will be BLGaming's first official sponsorship with a console gamer, however it will certainly not be the last. BLGaming has created a competitive gaming (PC and console) website to bridge the gap between gaming communities and allow players from all competitive games to interact with one another through Tournaments, voice chat, online forums, and blogs. They are committed to bringing their viewers only the very best in professional gaming tips, strategies, insights, HD streams, reviews, and competitions. You can view their site online at www.blgaming.com.
Summer Jam will take place August 14-15 at the Sheraton Suites - Philadelphia Airport and is hosted by Robert and Eric of PA - information on the event can be found on the Event's page on shoryuken.com here - http://shoryuken.com/f7/gvn-summer-jam-4-philly-8-14-8-15-sf4-t6-mb-more-over-%242000-prizes-cash-238073
