Football Summit 2020: Arena TV takes Title Sponsorship for eSports Focus

SVG Europe is delighted to announce that Arena Television has become the Title Sponsor for our special eSports Focus seminar on the morning of Football Summit in Berlin on 31 March.

This year’s Football Summit 2020 kicks off with a standalone seminar dedicated to one of the hottest topics on the agenda: eSports. Be it as a marketing tool or as an investment prospect, broadcasters around the world already air major eSports tournaments on a regular basis. Nevertheless, leading executives in sports business, consumer brands, media and technology are still debating the business models behind the phenomenon. Will eSports help to get access to the most important target group of the next decade: the millennials?

Following a keynote presentation, a panel of experts will discuss how the emergence of eSports, as a global mainstream phenomenon, is driving their strategies and what it all means for leagues, clubs, TV stations and production service facilities. Then, the conversation will focus on innovations, workflows and technical requirements for eSports.

Speakers lined up for the eSports Focus morning include:

Simon Eicher, ESL, executive producer

Dennis Gehlen, TaKeTV, chief executive officer

Michael Haenisch, Freaks4U Gaming, chief executive officer

Jannik Hülshoff, Twitch, director of partnerships DACH, BeNeLux & CIS
