Sky Sports has put together a special covering the Counter Strike: Global Offensive tournament at the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) in Katowice, Poland. The tournament had over half a million dollars in prize money and saw ESL and Intel team up to bring the event together.
Sky has been making moves on eSports recently trying to get some of the pie when it comes to the growing interest in eSports broadcast and viewing.
You can check out Sky Sports’ IEM 2016 video on YouTube and below, the video runs for just over one and a half hours. Sky Sports did an impressive job of explaining the setup and game with enough information for the fans and giving the event the same broadcast respect you’d expect in any professional sport.
