Singapore-based Esports Pro League signs eGG rights deal

The newly-launched Esports Pro League (ESPL) has signed a broadcast partnership with eGG Network, Southeast Asia’s largest esports television channel.

Under the agreement, eGG will broadcast the ESPL’s upcoming tournament in early 2020.

The eGG Network is owned by Malaysian broadcaster Astro and operates in eight countries across Southeast Asia and Australia. The channel broadcasts over 2,000 hours of live esports content a year and also hosts regional events in its supported territories.

The ESPL is a new global amateur esports tournament platform co-founded by Michael Broda, the former chief executive of eSports.com; iCandy Interactive Limited; and Malaysian behavioural and technology innovation firm Sedania Innovator Berhad.

The Singapore-based ESPL will begin its global roll-out across 16 countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas in early 2020, with the first planned season due to run from February to December.
