Live-game streaming juggernaut Twitch and upcoming competitive gaming show ELEAGUE are partnering to “distribute live event coverage and on-demand content.”
ELEAGUE, set to debut on TBS Tuesday, May 24, is a show pitting 24 of the top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams against each other in a ten-week tournament. Four teams will compete each week for a spot in the playoffs culminating in the ELEAGUE Global Championship in Atlanta on Saturday, July 30.
With the partnership, fans will also be able to watch ELEAGUE coverage on Twitch every Tuesday and Wednesday starting at noon EST. A “pair of best-of-three matches” is also set to broadcast on Twitch on Thursdays at 2 p.m. Additionally, fans will have the chance to watch a “best-of-three weekly finale across the Twitch platform” during the Friday night weekly showcase on TBS starting at 10 p.m. ET.
“We’re incredibly excited for the launch of ELEAGUE and Twitch provides us with a premier destination for fans to congregate and engage with our live event coverage,” said Christina Alejandre, General Manager of ELEAGUE.
