With every new tournament and big media partnership, competitive video gaming continues to surge in popularity. ELeague features 24 teams competing in the video game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a first-person shooter where two teams of five battle in a series of competitive matches. Viewers can watch live and on-demand matches through streaming service Twitch or ELeague's website, while TBS will host a tournament showcase every Friday night.
While ELeague maintains the online streaming origins where eSports took off, there's a heavier broadcast influence. Turner built a 10,000-square-foot arena at its studios in Atlanta to host the 10-week season. It boasts 26 cameras, including one that can capture 360-degree views of the floor.
