October 29, 2013
Dailymotion is exclusively broadcasting two of the world’s biggest international eSport competitions – the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) and the ASUS RoG Tournament.
ESWC is the largest and most professional video games competition in the world, in which the world’s best players go head to head in Dota, Call of Duty, Fifa, Counter Strike, Trackmania and Shootmania. The finals will run from October 30th to November 3rd, all of which will be live streamed on Dailymotion. Last year’s finals were a highlight of Paris Games Week and attracted two million online viewers worldwide.
Marc Eychenne, Head of International Content at Dailymotion, says: “eSports are becoming more professional with established international competitions, commentary and coaching. The big tournaments are attracting huge audiences – both at live events and online – and the players are becoming celebrities in their own right. This is a really exciting area and Dailymotion is committed to providing a platform to give fans access to these competitions.”
