I have been a part of the ELEAGUE fan experience in person at the OverWatch Open and it was awesome. That is me, @THESportsTechie in the above picture over 30 pounds ago. I enjoy covering Tuner Sports as they take a leadership role, develop innovative sports tech and partner with proactive sponsors with the world’s fastest emerging sport.
Before each Friday night fight at Turner Arena, fans received complimentary tickets, food and beverage before the nights matchup, During these open to the public, fan-driven sessions, gaming fans were given the free opportunity to meet their favorite gamers, breakdown strategies with expert eSports analysts, and learn more about CS:Go from shout casters.
