SCUF Goes from Virtual Battlefields to Basketball Courts with the Release of the Official Controller of the NBA 2K League

March 28, 2019

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 28, 2019--Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, extends its support to the sports gaming community with the release of the Official Controller of the NBA 2K League: the SCUF Vantage NBA2KL. With a sleek design and over 15 unique features, this controller is crafted to quicken reactions and adapt to the playstyle of any gamer, amateur or professional.

“Since our inception, SCUF has always been a believer and supporter of esports. In 2011, we created a new market segment for what is now known as performance controllers, to equip players with the high-performance gear needed to improve their game. Our partnership with the NBA 2K League and the release of the SCUF Vantage NBA2KL continues that legacy,” said Duncan Ironmonger, Founder and CEO of Scuf Gaming. “Now, fans can get in on the action and support the league.”

The NBA 2K League launched in 2018 with affiliates of 17 NBA teams participating in the inaugural season. With the addition of affiliates of four additional NBA teams, the league has expanded to a total of 21 teams competing in its second season. The inaugural season culminated with Knicks Gaming defeating Heat Check Gaming in the first-ever NBA 2K League Finals on August 25, 2018.

“SCUF controllers helped me win the Season 1 Championship – I love the comfort and grip that they provide, both of which allow me to dictate each individual movement in a precise manner,” said Adam “Adamthe1st” Kudeimati of Knicks Gaming. “Especially helpful are the controller paddles, offering quicker alternatives for stealing the ball and switching in between defensive sets.”

The SCUF Vantage NBA2KL (starting at $229.95) is now available in Wireless/Wired model for delivery in the US & Canada on scuf.co/NBA2KL. Images of the SCUF Vantage NBA2KL are available here.
