IRN-BRU Energy reveals its first-ever gaming set up complete with bespoke gaming chair – and it’s bound to get fans fizzing.

As the Scottish Esports League (SEL4) kicks off in Dundee, IRN-BRU Energy has created a super limited-edition gamer set up to help Scots up their game, as well as raising cash for gaming charity, SpecialEffect.

The BRU Energy gaming throne is key to the set up, designed in partnership with leading Scottish gaming chair manufacturer, GT Omega. The chair is unmissable in the iconic BRU colours and comes complete with a bespoke IRN-BRU Energy chilled can holder to keep gamers energised for epic sessions.

Elevating the gaming experience, the chair comes with a fully stocked IRN-BRU Energy mini-fridge as well as top of the range speakers, a gaming headset and accessories to help players focus when they’re in the zone.

With only a handful of these top-of-the-range set-ups available, there are two ways to get your hand on one for yourself. As sponsors of SEL4, IRN-BRU Energy are encouraging visitors to attend the event (18 – 21 November) to go head-to-head in a fastest lap tournament. The champion will be rewarded for their stamina with the full BRU Energy gaming set up.

Can’t make it to SEL4? All is not lost. BRU Energy have also teamed up with SpecialEffect, a charity dedicated to supporting people with physical disabilities to play video games. The brand is asking gamers to donate to the charity to be in with a chance of getting this epic set-up for their own home. Every donation to SpecialEffect will act as one entry into a prize draw, with the lucky winner being announced on the 2nd December.

Adrian Troy, Marketing Director at AG Barr, said: “IRN-BRU Energy helps gamers perform at their best, so it made sense for us to work alongside GT Omega to create the ultimate gaming chair, complete with everything a gamer might need to up their game.

“We can’t wait to welcome gaming fans to our racing simulator at SEL4 to battle it out for the chair and we’re also thrilled to support SpecialEffect through our charity raffle for the BRU throne and the all the gaming goodies. Let the games begin.”

Liam Lawler, Fundraising Team at SpecialEffect said: “‘We see gaming as an inclusive activity and believe everyone should have the best possible chance to participate to the very best of their abilities. It’s great to see a brand like IRN-BRU Energy supporting the gaming community with funds raised from this epic chair helping to make a life-transforming difference for gamers with disabilities. Thank you to all who support this important cause.”
