The NFL team is going to explore the eSports industry with the Ravens Gaming League
The combination of eSports and sports teams has generated a huge trend in recent years. As time goes by, both individual stars and entire teams have started to immerse themselves in this universe that is constantly booming. As for the latest update, the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens are the latest to have announced their eSports initiative called the Ravens Gaming League, which comes as great news for fans of both communities.
According to a press release, it is understood that the Ravens Gaming League may be the result of a new eSports community and a combination of a series of tournaments that will come to the delight of many. It is said that different types of competitions will start to be launched while participants will receive rewards. Fortnite appears to be the first title the brand has set its sights on for its first tournament, and the winning player will take home a total of $500 in cash, plus the “Ravens VIP home game experience” which includes transportation, hotel stay, equipment and tickets to a Ravens home game.
The 2021 season is just around the corner, and if you are as much a fan of this team as you are a good Fortnite player, this opportunity will be the perfect opportunity. In order to make this experience happen, Esports Gaming League (EGL) has agreed to partner with the Ravens organization. EGL is a company with a long history in the eSports industry and there is no doubt that its experience in running competitions and facilitating audience interactivity will help this new organization to excel with great success.
This is the first time EGL has partnered with an NFL team; however, it is not the first time in general that something like this has happened as late last year, the Philadelphia Eagles announced a tournament series of their own after joining forces with Esports Entertainment Group. The popularity of eSports has led to big-name sports teams setting their sights on it, and this diversification has brought them great rewards as well.
