Tottenham Hotspur football player, Son Heung-min has become a partner to ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG), which represents the world of gamers: Influencers, athletes and esports professionals recruited from all over the globe.
“Republic of Gamers (ROG) is proud to announce footballer Son Heung-min is joining the Team ROG initiative. But, in addition to the incredible athleticism that propelled him to win a Golden Boot, Son is also an avid gamer. The team is honored to be joined by this exceptional athlete, and excited to see his achievements in the virtual realm,” it announced.
Son Heung-min joins Team ROG
ROG is incredibly excited for Son to join the Team ROG partnership. An all-star football forward who has been playing professional football since the age of 16, Son is among the top scorers representing his home country of South Korea at the World Cup. While his professional career involves dominating his opponents with precise striking from the pitch, he is a passionate gamer in his off time. A fervent League of Legends player, Son sought out a cutting-edge ROG system to make sure he never missed the last hit. The brand was happy to oblige.
When he isn’t dominating the Summoner’s Rift on his own, he keeps up with the game by watching T1 and Faker flex their skills and hopes to find time to attend a League of Legends tournament in the future. In addition to League of Legends, Son also loves to play other games, such as FIFA.

Team ROG joins many talented individuals from all over the globe, from all walks of life, and from many different fields. “ROG is incredibly proud to welcome South Korean football star Son Heung-min to the growing Team ROG initiative,” said Galip Fu, the Global Consumer Marketing Director for ROG. “More than a football player, Son is an avid gamer who’s just as competitive on his PC as he is on the football field. Son shows the same championship mentality that we at ROG strive for every day, and it is with this that I say with full confidence: this is only the beginning. Welcome to Team ROG, Sonny!”
“I am so happy to join Team ROG!” says Son Heung-Min about the new partnership. “I was impressed by the quality of their products, and I am proud to join this amazing brand as an ambassador! I look forward to working with ROG and I am excited about the upcoming projects.”
