London, United Kingdom, 28th March, 2019 - HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company Inc., today announced the signing of Rapahël Varane, the French professional footballer, as a HyperX Gaming Brand Ambassador.
Varane is currently playing as a centre-back for Spanish football club Real Madrid, as well as for the French national team. Despite being only 25 years old, he won his fourth UEFA Champions League trophy in 2018, making him the youngest player in history to win the competition four times.
When not on the pitch, Varane is an eager gamer, playing games such as FIFA, Call of Duty and Fortnite. With his signing, he joins HyperX’s growing family of international ambassadors and devoted gamers such as German footballer, Marco Reus, Tottenham and England footballer, Dele Alli, award-winning rapper, Post Malone and legendary Twitch Streamer, Shroud.
“I am thrilled to become part of the HyperX family and to join this amazing group of talented ambassadors. HyperX has some exciting projects planned for 2019 and it is great to be part of this brand and community”, said Varane. “Gaming is a part of my everyday life; it helps me disconnect when I’m not training or playing, I’m therefore thrilled to be representing a brand in this space with such quality products”.
