With eSports gaining in popularity all the time, it only makes sense that one of the most heavily trafficked video sites in the world would make a natural partner for some of the biggest gaming tournaments.
The site in question would be Dailymotion, and the tournaments are the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) and the ASUS RoG Tournament, both of which are being held at Paris Games Week. Dailymotion is carrying exclusive livestreams of both events, which fans can check out for free at the site’s Dailymotion Games Hub right now through November 3.
The ESWC finals attracted an audience of two million viewers in 2012, and this year’s event features games like “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” “Counter-Strike,” “Dota 2,” and “ShootMania.” “League of Legends” is the game featured in the RoG Tournament, and some of the best players in the world are expected to be in action on the final day this Sunday.
Dailymotion has plans to do even more with eSports in the near future as well.
“Broadcasting the ESWC and the ASUS RoG Tournament is really exciting for us,” Dailymotion Head of EMAE Content Mark Eychenne said in a recent press release. “We’ve been supporting eSports since 2009, but it is only the beginning of what we plan to do in this arena. Fans should watch this space, we’ll be at the major video games events in 2014 and we’ll have some exciting eSports news for Dailymotion viewers soon.”
Games in both tournaments are being played right now and through the weekend, but GameSided will be sharing the ESWC “FIFA” tournament finals streams from Dailymotion right here. Check back Friday, November 1 at 11:00 am ET for group matches, and Saturday, November 2 at 11:00 am ET for the final match.
