Walmart is now stocking merchandise from the best League of Legends, Overwatch, and CS:GO teams in the world, like Team SoloMid, the Los Angeles Valiant, and Fnatic on their website.

Walmart is now hopping on board the esports merchandise train, stocking jerseys and accessories from some of the world’s most recognizable esports brands. 

The Esports Fan Shop stocks items from the North American League of Legends Championship Series (LCS), the Overwatch League, the ESL Shop, and more. This means fans can pick up jerseys from Cloud 9, Ninjas in Pajamas, the San Francisco Shock, and over 40 more teams.

Most of the merchandise is sold and shipped from the outside organizations that originally stocked them. So, Overwatch League jerseys will still come from Fanatics and INTO THE AM, and LCS merch will still come from We Are Nations.

However, the prices on the merch has been significantly slashed in some cases, and free delivery is on offer for a lot of the items.

Fans can pick up a jersey from any of the 10 LCS teams for $60.00, the same price as We Are Nations, but get free delivery on any order.

Overwatch League jerseys for every team have been reduced in price by around 30% across the board, but fans won’t be able to get their hands on the Inaugural Season jerseys through the Walmart site. Free shipping is on offer, though, which might make it more appealing than buying straight off Fanatics or INTO THE AM.

CS:GO fans can also grab their favourite teams merchandise through Walmart and dodge the hefty shipping fees for the most part.

Activision-BlizzardOverwatch League merch from Fanatics and INTO THE AM is available on the Walmart website.

The American shopping giant has had a partnership with Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins since 2018, stocking his iconic headband in stores across North America for $21.99. They also stock Cloud 9-branded HyperX headsets and mouse pads in store.

While the Esports Fan Shop is currently only available online, it’s a step towards getting physical esports merchandise in brick-and-mortar stores.

Shipping looks to be US and Canada only, so international buyers won’t be able to grab some of the amazing deals on offer. 

But, if you are based in North America, now is the perfect time to snap up some of this year’s merch before teams debut new lines in 2020.

100 Thieves’ Tommey reveals footage of man stealing his new gaming chair

Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, ex-Call of Duty pro turned full time Warzone competitor for 100 Thieves, has had his brand new gaming chair stolen, after it was left outside the Airbnb at which he was staying. 

Tommey, who recently joined 100 Thieves as a member of their Warzone team, had a new gaming chair on the way from Mavix. The new brand of gaming chairs from X-Chairs have partnered with a number of streamers, including 100 Thieves content creator Valkyrae.

It seems Tommey was also getting a new Mavix chair just in time for Christmas, but an unknown thief stole the delivery after it was left outside, unsupervised.

On December 5, he shared CCTV footage of his chair being lifted from outside his accommodation. A pick-up truck can be seen pulling up, before a man gets out and walks up the drive way. He then casually picks up the box in which the chair is in and places it in his truck, before driving away.

“Well, there goes my new chair,” Tommey said. “I got sent the footage in the hope we’d be able to report it and find the man, but he’s well covered up. Merry Christmas, random man. I hope the chair brings you lots of joy.”

He went on to explain that the chair was left outside the Airbnb at which he was staying, and that the delivery company did not even attempt to hide it or place it in a more discreet location.

Unfortunately, the thief did a pretty good job of covering his tracks. Tommey also suspected that he was not the only victim. “His tailgate is removed and he has a chain in place,” he said. “If you look, he also has another box in the back of the truck. Which means he’s purposely driving around and taking multiple packages.”

Despite his best efforts, it doesn’t seem like Tommey is holding out too much hope of finding the culprit. Thankfully, he confirmed that a replacement has been sent out, free of charge.

Tommey is perhaps best known for hist time with Splyce and Fnatic, achieving a number of impressive placements across the Infinite Warfare and WWII seasons.

However, despite being a substitute for the Dallas Empire in the CDL’s opening season, he has since become part of Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves, as a full-time Warzone streamer and competitor.
