    I know this is probably the weirdest thread you're going to read in an internet marketing forum, but has anyone had any previous experience with getting a gaming sponsor?

    The reason I ask is that I've got a gaming team for a really hot game as of right now, and I have no idea how to go about getting any sponsors. I have a partnered youtube channel and all which gives me an edge in finding one I'm sure.

    I was thinking of trying to get in touch with steelseries and asking them if they'd be willing to actually. My two friends and I have been playing the game since it came out, and are some of the best players on the east coast, etc etc.

    Bottom line, any suggestions?

    Just contact the company you're interested in getting sponsored by.
    A mate of mine asked razer and they went for it.
    He's a diehard cs 1.6 freak and has done quite well within Europe.
