1. Provide the Information required to get excited about the event:

• Statistics from previous years
• Past recorded games to see the players in action
• Predictions from blogs and podcasts to build hype

2. Provide an easy way to watch the event
• Streaming to all major platforms
• Insightful Commentary
• Player interviews
• Partnering with international partners to provide native language streams
• Live updating of on and off screen associated assets for keeping up with non streamed games

3. Provide after event info to fuel next years event

• Interviews with winners
• Video of the event including non game footage

Also to ensure the greatest uptake and to foster international engagement we would try to work with partners to produce multi language streams.
