BEYOND EPIC opens digital seats for the fans
BEYOND EPIC series’ organizers have announced an integrated, real-time digital audience initiative. Up to 100 fans of the teams-participants will be able to support their favorite rosters by joining the live broadcast in Zoom.
Before each match, up to 100 fans will be able to access the “waiting room”. During the matches, the fans’ video feeds will be included in RuHub Studio’s live broadcast. By doing this, the organizers hope to both make the viewer’s experience more diverse and to give the fans a platform to support their favorite teams on a whole new level.
Epic Esports Events:
“Seeing how COVID-19 pandemic stopped the fans from supporting their favorite teams offline in real-time from their stadium seats, we came up with this solution. If the experiment proves successful, we’ll increase the amount of “seats” and make this option a regular experience of all EPIC brand series."
