Sports Techie, I first covered IMG’s entry into eSports in 2015 with Tuner Sports and WME / IMG. Then in 2016, I attended the Overwatch Open presented by Blizzard, ELEAGUE and FACEIT here in Atlanta at Turner Studios eSports Arena and immersed myself in professional gaming. It was awesome to behold!
Looks as if Denmark is the place to be for the Copenhagen CS2 Major 2024.
PGL will be there and on the current DPC bring the eye-popping gaming action to thousands of loyal fans in attendance and millions more streaming online from locations around the world.
See you later sportstechie in Seattle, Atlanta and around the world!
