Knights must always be prepared for battle, and we’re making sure Pittsburgh’s shining protectors are ready to fight.

The Pittsburgh Knights, known for their valiant Smite, Fortnite, PUBG, and Smash Bros. Melee players, are proudly sponsored by HyperX. We’re here to ensure they ride into battle with the latest, world-class gaming headsets, keyboards, mice, mousepads, and lightning-fast RAM.

Whether it’s a duel, joust, or 1v1 Final Destination, the Knights are well-equipped to deal with any challengers to their territory thanks to our exclusive peripheral sponsorship. And with Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster already sponsored by HyperX, the Pittsburgh family of HyperX gaming heroes grows!

HyperX peripherals offer the competitive edge the Pittsburgh Knights need to stay at the top of their games. Whether it’s shooting or brawling their way to victory, players know the difference between victory and defeat could be as small as a pin drop.

"When you’re playing Counter-Strike, for example, being able to pick up on every little sound and clue from your opponent is so important," says James O’Connor, Knights president, and former professional gamer and coach. "Having a great headset is a real advantage."

The Pittsburgh Knights know quality when they feel it, that’s why we’re working with them to keep them at the cutting edge of esports. "I’ve been around the block in esports, and HyperX has been the most desirable endemic company to work with," says Knights CEO, Rob Lee. "It’s an absolute pleasure to have our brand alongside HyperX".

Pittsburgh fancies itself the City of Champions, with a long, proud history of strong sports franchises and passionate fans, so HyperX is honored to be the peripheral brand that keeps the Knights fighting fit. With a Smite team stocked with world champions and hometown Smash heroes like Stephen "Abate" Abate, no organization better represents the sporting spirit of the Steel City.

The Pittsburgh Knights were founded in 2017, focused on competing on the global stage of esports while involving the local community. While the Knights are out there winning in PUBG, Smite, Paladins, Fortnite, Super Smash Bros Melee, PUBG, Hearthstone, and Gwent, the rest of the team are getting involved with the Pittsburgh community, the online community, and the esports community at large.
