Michael Luscher, POINT3 Founder & CEO. “We’ve spent the last year immersing ourselves in the
esports community and exploring the apparel needs of these athletes. They need gear that’s
comfortable, eliminates distractions, and is ready to perform. Our new collection gives gamers a
performance advantage by using the same technology worn by over a quarter-million basketball
POINT3 entered the gaming space with a beta test this Spring, sending sample kits to esports
influencers for product feedback. That test led to the signing of Nidal Nasser, aka MamaImDatMan, to the first ever player endorsement deal in the history of the NBA2K League, and to the creation of the Fade2Karma fan store powered by POINT3. These partnerships confirmed
product-market fit and accelerated the development of this gaming collection.
“Looking for the right partner for our apparel was not an easy task as almost all esports endemic
companies lack the experience and skillset to deliver products with the highest quality standard,” said Tim Bergmann, Co-Founder and Managing Director of F2K Gaming. “With POINT3 and their unique DRYV solution that sets new standards in gaming apparel, we finally found a partner that lives and breathes garments. We are delivering excellent products to our fans with POINT3.”

Alongside the All Day shorts is the DRYV Gamer Jersey ($60), which features DRYV absorbent
panels on the side seams for hand wiping, and around the left arm band for keeping players’ faces dry.
