In 2019 we established the CSGO Fight Night brand within the CSGO community and esports world and we now present the CSGO Fight Night Tournament series. CSGO Fight Night is an action-packed show bringing together the biggest CSGO matches with tier one teams from around the world.
CSGO Fight Night Tournament (T1): 22-24 May, 2020
We organised, produced and distributed our own 3-day CSGO tournament to showcase and test the full capabilities of our esports proposition. This included licensing, broadcasting rights, production, team and game server admin, ad insertion production, content ingestion, CDN, transmission and distribution.
16 teams competed in the tournament (8 invites and 8 open qualifiers) with 101 teams competing to qualify across 70 games for the 8 open slots.
We broadcast the event in 4 languages across the UK, EU and Russia.
British Armyand Just Eatwere featured as sponsors with a brand display every 30 seconds and multiple video ads inserted at programming source to ensure no skipping or blocking, with an average of 12 ads per hour served.
There was no paid marketingto promote the event in advance – just organic promotion across our network’s social channels.
