This is the first major deal Frenzy has done since ESE Entertainment’s definitive share purchase agreement. The event will be covered from a studio in Warsaw, Poland.
The broadcasts will be produced in cooperation with Fantasyexpo. Fantasyexpo is the owner of the broadcasting rights for the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and is the exclusive marketing and business partner for PGL Esports, the organiser of this year’s CS:GO Major.
Marcin Kilar, Managing Director at Frenzy, commented: “After a two-year break, the world’s best esports teams finally return to compete at the Major. We are happy that Frenzy will be part of this historical event, and thanks to the cooperation with Fantasyexpo agency, will produce the Polish broadcast.
“Such a prestigious tournament deserves the highest production standards possible. We can already say that this Major tournament will be available for viewers on both the channels of Polsat Games TV, and one of the most popular Polish commentators, Izak.”
Frenzy joins WePlay Esports as a broadcast partner for the event. The 2021 Major is also the first event of this magnitude to be broadcast completely in 4K.
Esports Insider says: Regional broadcasts of CS:GO are extremely popular in Europe, with some foreign language streams being more popular than the official ones. The language barriers in Europe are drastic for some viewers, so it’s always good to see companies provide similar experiences in native languages.
