Twitter live streaming Sydney e-sports tournament

By

Twitter is partnering with video game publisher and e-sports tournament organiser Riot Games Oceania to live stream the inaugural League of Legends: League of Origin tournament globally.

The deal will see live streaming of the games on Twitter and connected devices on 3 and 4 June. The event is being held at ESL studios in Sydney.

League of Legends: League of Origin will feature e-sports stars representing New Zealand, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria who will clash head-on for two days of matches, where only one region can emerge victorious.

"E-sports is growing at a rapid pace in Australia and globally, and this partnership is a great way to tap into the engaged audience of gamers that are already using Twitter as a primary source of content," said Olly Wilton, head of Sports at Twitter Australia.

"By partnering with leading e-sports competitions like League of Origin, we look forward to bringing the best of esports live video and conversation together on Twitter."

Daniel Ringland, head of E-sports at Riot Games Oceania, says the livestream on Twitter will be a shortcut for fans in Oceania and around the world, as "Twitter is one of the most engaging platforms for fans of the OPL and OCS e-sports leagues, so it made sense to team up for League of Origin".

"The livestream on Twitter will be a shortcut for fans in Oceania and around the world, as they can both watch and engage on the platform at the same time."

To mark the inaugural League of Legends: League of Origin, Twitter is also launching  special tournament emojis. Users can Tweet with #LoLOrigin or one of the team hashtags (#NSWWIN, #NZWIN, #QLDWIN and #VICWIN) to add a custom emoji automatically to their Tweets.

The live content on Twitter will be available globally at Leagueoflegends.twitter.com.
