Cadence: Madden 20: Fox Sports will broadcast live esports games
Madden 20: Fox Sports will broadcast live esports games
Sunday's Fox Sports will air its first-ever "Mad American Football Invitational" on FS1 later today. The network said a two-hour event hosted by Chris Myers and Rachel Bonnetta will raise awareness of the CDC Foundation's Covid-19 disaster relief efforts. Could this be the starting point for eSports to become mainstream? Follow GameMS to learn more about Madden20, you can Buy Madden Coins in our store at cheap prices.
If you told the program directors of major broadcasters such as ESPN and Fox Sports just a month ago that there will be almost no live sports broadcasts by the end of March, they will laugh at you outside the room. But here we are. Fox Sports said that the e-sports championship will play seven games in three rounds to determine whether it includes Devon James, Antonio Krumathi, Michael Wick, Matt Leinert Orlando Scandic, Orlando Scandic, TJ Houshmandzadeh, Juju Smith-Schuster, and Ahman Green. All players will compete remotely with matches broadcast live during the TV broadcast. Yes, it's Twitch in essence, but on cable TV.
This is unusual, of course, but what other options does the broadcaster have? This is not a contingency plan for this situation, and Fox Sports may not have a large archive of old sports events to fill ESPN's open program vacancies. It seems that the only option is to think outside the box and this is what we see. For example, WWE is still extracting content, despite being on an empty stage (yes, it sounds like bizarre and uncomfortable). UFC is still attempting a fierce battle between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson on April 18, and this round seems to be cursed because it has been booked and canceled four times.
But for Fox, especially for esports, this is a huge opportunity. Last week's virtual NASCAR match attracted a staggering number of people, and today's football broadcast can easily exceed that number. Think about it, it's not a long time ago that the ESPN chairman announced that esports is not a real sport.
Fox Sports' Madden NFL 20 Invitational is scheduled to begin at 7:00 Eastern Time at FS1. You can also follow us, we will continue to report for you, and you can also Buy Madden Coins in our store.
