Creating an attractive and sustainable league requires a touch of finesse, as you have to balance business-oriented goals with the expectations of your community. On the one hand, the production and creation of content and activations must be perfectly tailored to the target group for them to enjoy your broadcasts and to continue consuming it. On the other hand, you must make sure the content and activations you implement is also in line with the requirements of your brand partners and the goals you want to achieve for them. Promod Esports aims to establish an environment that allows brands and the community to experience entertainment moments together to build a strong foundation for years to come.
“Our focus is to grow esports by providing players and fans with epic entertaining moments. We're delighted to partner with Shikenso to analyse those upcoming moments during the VRL NE splits. Ensuring our brand partners have a clear understanding of how their support directly contributes to fans enjoyment is invaluable.”
