The LPL team are thrilled to announce that many of our Pro leagues will be televised weekly in Australia through Seven Network’s multi channel 7mate in 2020.
Australians can look forward to seeing regular weekly top-tier esports content on their television screens thanks to this 2020 partnership. We begin with LPL Pro Rainbow Six: Siege, airing weekly at 12 am Thursday 5th March, for 8 weeks. The show features top Oceanic Rainbow Six Siege esports teams as they fight for a cut of the season’s $5,000 AUD prize pool.
We are extremely excited to see Oceanic esports elevated this year through televised broadcasts - and hope that you are too!
