April 25, 2024

World Chase Tag USA (WCT), the global competitive tag organisation, and TrillerTV have announced that the biggest event in the league’s history, The WCT6 World Championships, will stream live from Evry-Courcouronnes, France, on TrillerTV.

The best athletes from Parkour and Ninja Warriors, as well as the top Hollywood stuntmen and women, will be participating in this global event. Teams from 10 countries – United States, China, Japan, Brazil, France, UK, Morocco, Sweden, Switzerland and Israel – have earned their place to take part in WCT6. Over fifteen hours of competition will stream beginning on April 26th through to the 28th, all free on TrillerTV.

“We’re proud the premier event in WCT’s history will be available live all over the world on TrillerTV. Adding WCT to Triller’s already impressive offerings is a true win-win,” said Cary Glotzer, Tupelo Honey CEO and President of WCT.

“We present a ton of sports at TrillerTV – from MMA to soccer to boxing and pro wrestling, and once you watch World Chase Tag, you’ll see how this adrenaline-spiked action fits right in,” said Michael Weber, Co-Founder and COO of TrillerTV. “What Cary Glotzer and the WCT has done is elevate a game we all grew up playing and make it into both a format to show off amazing athletics and a thrilling spectator sport.”

“World Chase Tag has truly exploded into a worldwide sport phenomenon organically through its massive social following and its television distribution worldwide,” added Johnny McMahon, GM and Chief Content Officer for World Chase Tag. “France is a perfect setting for this championship since the foundation of Parkour started in Evry-Courcouronnes.”

This year’s WCT competition will be the first event held at Grand Paris Sud, Les Arènes, a recently-completed state-of-the-art facility to hold events like World Chase Tag, as well as eSport competitions and concerts. WCT’s recent events have reached 150 million media impressions across all platforms and the league has recently aligned with Aphetor Games, who will be partnering with WCT during the event, bringing in influencers to participate in tag competitions revolving around the World Championship Event. This is expected to reach an additional 15 million fans via social media.
