Prominent eSports platform North American Collegiate League (NACL) and leading innovation conglomerate Fosun Group band to create NACL-Fosun eSports Streaming Platform that takes video game streaming and coverage to new heights.
The cooperation will bring forth an enhanced platform that provides extensive reportage and analysis of all eSports tournaments while giving up-to-date developments about the industry directed to its global audience. Alongside the two organizations is the Wolves eSports, an arm of the Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, that has participated in many English premier league eSports tournaments.
Armed with the experience of the NACL in entertainment coverage, the industry expertise of Fosun Group, and on-the-field experience of Wolves eSports in gaming, the partnership upgrades their production, distribution, and broadcasting capacities.
ESports is a relatively new form of sport which has, since then, gained global popularity with games that feature interactive, multiplayer, and challenging interfaces. Over the years, computer technologies gave rise to games like Fortnite, League of Angels (LOL), Defense of the Ancients (DOTA), Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO), etc. The multi-million dollar industry, popular among teenagers and early adults, gave opportunities for many individuals to tap their skills that translate to strategic gaming and allowed select few professionals to earn millions after winning global tournaments.
NACL was founded with a vision to help college students pursue their passion for eSports while continuing their education. The company hosts collegiate eSport tournaments, broadcasts them to streaming platforms, and provides opportunities for participants to receive scholarship grants. NACL understands the dilemma of many gamers, which segregates their education from their inclination for video gaming – gradually reinforcing the line that separates traditional and academic forms of scholarship with emergent ones. Through the company’s efforts, aspiring gamers have found an avenue to act on their passions simultaneous with maintaining their academic affairs.
For years, they have calibrated and re-calibrated their approach to eSports broadcast. In 2019, NACL hosted its first live event in Phoenix, Arizona bringing professional NASCAR drivers with a collegiate eSports team from Arizona State University in a NASCAR Heat 4 tournament. With this success, the company is gearing for another collaborative milestone that catapults the company to the global arena.
Fosun Group is a multinational company based in China that orchestrates a multitude of services to clients across the globe. With exceptional technologies, innovations, and frameworks centered around family needs, Fosun has developed strategies that cut across various sectors of the society. In the pursuit of expanding its reach to a rapidly growing industry, the company has decided to partner with entrepreneurs and industry practitioners like NACL and Wolves eSports, who have already grabbed hold of a domain they plan to explore.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Fosun, and create this synergy with collegiate esports,” shared David Chen, president of NACL.
Aboard with two competent groups, NACL is stretching its maximum potential yet staying true to the original promise of building relationships and opportunities for gamers. The strengthening of their operations and expanding it, lead to more scouting opportunities and brands sponsoring gamers. Ultimately, the enhanced reportage creates a broader community with wider audiences, assuring network expansions, and lasting connections.For more news about NACL and upcoming events, visit their webpage.
