The partnership will also span across the Sacramento Kings, Kings Guard Gaming’s associated NBA franchise. According to the release, the partnership is expected to ‘improve the team’s performance both on and off the court’.

Sacramento Kings President of Business Operations John Rinehart commented on the deal in a release: “We are excited to announce our newest Cloud Partnership with Acronis and Executech. Leveraging Acronis’ global expertise to enhance data storage and backup security will allow us to continue revolutionising fan experiences while reducing disruptions to day-to-day business operations.”

The agreement will additionally see Executech become a primary jersey sponsor of Kings Guard Gaming. Moreover, both Acronis and Executech branding will be present throughout the team’s home matches and on social media content for the next three NBA 2K League seasons.

Together with Executech, we’re committed to creating the most secure sports programmes that the modern-day technology industry has ever seen.

Esports Insider says: It’s great to see the NBA 2K League and its franchises, such as Kings Guard Gaming, continue to garner partnership and sponsorship opportunities. Indeed, as with this case for the Sacramento Kings, it would appear beneficial for NBA teams to have a 2K League affiliate to deepen opportunities such as this.
