“Esports is a growing phenomenon and one that HUD has a leading edge on as one of the major sources of entertainment and news surrounding the players and tournaments. HUD is most popular with younger, mobile-first audiences and therefore bringing the format to channels like IGTV is crucial to expanding the audience reach. Instagram just hit 1 billion active users this month, providing huge potential to grow the HUD audience and drive sponsorship opportunities in the future.”
