Sanford Kelly, one of New York's finest Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 players, has just been picked up by a new sponsor, e-cigarettes maker The Steam Company, according to a tweet on the company's official Twitter account.

It was thanks to The Steam Co.'s sponsorship that Sanford Kelly could be there in Las Vegas for EVO 2014 this weekend. But the sponsorship is for long-term, not simply a weekend-only affair, The Steam Co. said in response to a question on Twitter.

Sanford Kelly's new sponsor also confirmed that the player has parted ways with Empire Arcadia -- refer to the tweets below.
