ESL is excited to announce a brand new partnership with Berlin-based Shadow Esports, a startup that uses the power of Big Data to develop tools and services that help players and fans master their favourite games.
With esports viewership having exploded in the last year on both digital channels and TV, widgets like the one created by Shadow.GG are even more important, as they offer appealing visuals and statistics that help immerse viewers and create a more involved experience. In the case of Shadow.GG’s Esports Widget, a detailed 2D map of the game that can be used as a supplement or replacement of the live stream is just one of the many features available. ESL will be expanding the distribution of said widget as part of its partnership with Shadow Esports.
"We are delighted that we have gained ESL as a leading Dota2 and CS:GO tournament host to promote our widget solution and that they have trusted us to positively influence fan engagement with their valuable brand," said Benjamin Riewe, CEO of Shadow.GG.
