Memphis, Tenn. — Grizz Gaming, the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies, today announced a three-year partnership with Zipchair to become the Official Gaming Chair Partner of Grizz Gaming. As part of the partnership, Grizz Gaming is renovating the team’s practice facility and office space of the Grizz Gaming Studio at FedExForum with Zipchair providing Grizz Gaming-branded furniture in the space.
“We are thrilled to announce Zipchair as the Official Chair of Grizz Gaming,” said Lang Whitaker, Grizz Gaming General Manager and Head Coach. “Grizz Gaming is committed to providing our gamers with all of the necessary resources to compete at the highest level of the NBA 2K League. Zipchair offers our team the best gaming experience in terms of comfort and durability to help us excel in the upcoming 2021 NBA 2K League season. We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership, and we look forward to growing our relationship with Zipchair for years to come.”
Through the partnership, Grizz Gaming will use Zipchair’s PhantomX gaming chair across Grizz Gaming streams, events and team content. The collaboration with Zipchair will also feature fan engagement opportunities on social media through giveaways and promotional campaigns, with Grizz Gaming and Zipchair conducting a sweepstakes through social media. In addition, to celebrate the partnership, Zipchair is offering fans a 15 percent discount when using the promo code GRIZZ15 at checkout. The discount is applicable toward all Grizzlies and Grizz Gaming products on Zipchair.com and ZipchairGaming.com.

“We are excited to work with the entire Grizz Gaming organization and provide their gamers and Coach Whitaker with state-of-the-art branded gaming chairs that will help raise their level of comfort and performance,” said Chandler Suprina, President of Zipchair. “As a long-standing NBA licensee, fans have been able to purchase a Memphis Grizzlies branded chair so they can enjoy every game from home, but with the growth of esports and the NBA 2K league, we look to do the same for Grizz Gaming fans by supplying branded gaming chairs for their home use. Working with the entire Grizz Gaming organization allows us to continue to show our commitment to the esports community.”
