WNBA champion and gaming content creator Aerial Powers has officially joined the HyperX Brand Ambassador family. Under the new sponsorship, Powers will use HyperX headsets while streaming and gaming. As the official gaming audio sponsor of Aerial Powers, HyperX marks its first foray into the WNBA.
“I am extremely excited to officially join the HyperX family. Anyone who games, knows that hearing an opponent coming before they see you is key to winning. With my HyperX headphones, I have been able to see a big difference in my gameplay and an increase in my number of ‘dubs,’” said Powers in a press release. “Rocking HyperX is what will continue to keep me at the top of my game. I am so honored to receive the Heroes treatment and I can’t wait to share with the world the sick creation that we come up with!”
As a HyperX brand ambassador, Powers will receive the HyperX Heroes treatment, including her own hero illustration inspired by her gaming persona. Powers will exclusively use HyperX headsets while gaming and streaming. She joins a line-up of internationally recognized talent on the HyperX roster, including football player JuJu Smith-Schuster, basketball player Gordon Hayward, ice hockey player Filip Forsberg, international soccer player Dele Alli, professional race car driver Sage Karam, and more than 25 global streamers and influencers in the HyperX family.
During the 2019 WNBA season, Powers officially launched her Twitch channel, where she plays and streams Apex Legends, Call of Duty and NBA 2K. She is an athlete in every sense of the word, and is making waves in both industries. Most recently, Powers joined Team Liquid as a brand ambassador, content creator, and a leading voice to help promote diversity in gaming and esports. In the WNBA, Powers joined the Minnesota Lynx.
Head Coach and General Manager Cheryl Reeve stated, “Aerial Powers is an exciting young player with endless potential. She plays with a great deal of passion, is a dynamic scorer, and defends at a high level.” The same is true in gaming. By joining HyperX, Powers brings “a desire to promote a healthy gaming lifestyle and aims for increased awareness of diversity and inclusion for females and people of color in sports and gaming.”
“We’re thrilled to sign Aerial to the HyperX family,” said Dustin Illingworth, influencer marketing manager at HyperX. “Her skills on the court and remarkable passion for diversity and inclusion in gaming will elevate awareness with gamers and traditional sports fans alike.”
