"Through this sponsorship, Plantronics Gaming audio excellence ensures that WCG competitors have superior audio and team communication, to perform their best at the Grand Final."

Plantronics will equip the WCG Grand Final competitors with professional eSports gaming headsets, including the GameCom Commander®. GameCom Commander features a powerful noise-cancelling microphone, superior sound quality, and long-wearing comfort critical to successful competitive gaming. At the Plantronics booth at the event, spectators and fans will also be able to try out the latest Plantronics gaming headsets, including the headset the pros will be wearing, the GameCom Commander, and the top-selling GameCom® 780.

Brad Lee, the CEO of WCG remarked, "We couldn't be happier that Plantronics has come on board as the exclusive headset sponsor of the World Cyber Games Grand Final in China.
