Spacestation Gaming, the 2020 Six Invitational champion-winning team, has announced an official apparel partnership with Ubisoft’s “Rainbow Six Siege”.
“We’re passionate about Rainbow Six players. We know they love the game as we do, and we want to give them a great experience and connect them to their favorite characters through art inspired by where they’re from and their stories,” said Nick Moore, SSG Merchandise Director said in a press release provided to SiegeGG.
Five distinct t-shirts will be available for purchase. The limited-edition merchandise centers around the operators that have Spacestation in-game R6 Share skins. Namely, Ela, Zero, and Echo are the design focus of the merchandise.
According to the release, each design centers on the unique backgrounds of the operators. In the game’s lore, Ela is from Poland, Echo from Japan, and Zero from the United States. All items also come with a “patch” featuring SSG and “Rainbow Six”, made of kevlar.
The Ela shirt has a “3D ‘puff’ print”, the Zero shirt was printed with glow in the dark ink, and the Echo shirt has color-changing UV effects when in the sunlight, according to the release
The partnership with Ubisoft is the first of its kind for an esports organization. According to the release, the t-shirts were designed by Spacestation’s internal art team, which utilized 3D printing processes to bring the characters to life.
Spacestation has been a powerhouse in the NA region for many years. Currently, the organization has the distinction of a first-place finish in NAL Stage 2 after signing Matthew “Hotancold” Stevens. Spacestation fell short of its title aspirations at the Mexico Major, finishing as a quarterfinalist after an 0-2 loss to eventual finalist Team Empire.
