We are happy to welcome Caffeine as a streaming partner! The partnership will bring esports content to Caffeine’s streaming platform including live events, highlights, replays, as well as a brand new ESL talk show. It all begins with IEM World Championship Katowice, which will be livestreamed on on March 2-4.

As a social broadcasting platform, Caffeine users find content based on the people they follow in their social circles and come together to share that content. It focuses on conversations between friends and broadcasters creating a great viewing experience. Since Caffeine is built on its own infrastructure, it will deliver ESL’s content and conversations with no latency, allowing broadcasters to answer questions in real-time and build stronger relationships with their fans.

All you have to do to enjoy esports on Caffeine is sign up on their website., follow the ESL account of your choosing, and then invite your friends to join you as they tune in.

What can you expect from ESL on Caffeine:

  • Live content of AAA esports tournaments.
  • Recent highlights
  • Replayed broadcasts from some of ESLs greatest matches, shown “live” for the first time on Caffeine.
  • “The Magazine”, an esports talk show that will premiere later in 2018, which allows broadcasters to present the latest esports news live, and to react in real-time to audience questions.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with ESL. We want to bring friends together around the content they love in a casual, friendly way, and what better way to do that then to host the world’s most popular esports gaming company’s content on Caffeine, said Ben Keighran, CEO of Caffeine. “This week, fans from around the world will be able to join each other and tune in to ESL live coverage, with highlights of the best events from this year and previous years following close behind.”

“Caffeine brings a new type of social experience to ESL’s esports content,” said Nik Adams, Senior Vice President, Global Media Rights & Distribution of ESL. “ESL is at the frontier of new streaming concepts and new technologies. One of ESL’s goals is to expand esports to new audiences and the partnership with Caffeine brings us one step closer to our goal.”
