Client

West Virginia University

We've remained steadfast in our commitment to deliver for our partners, even in a changed environment of social distancing and college sports on pause. Esports represents a huge opportunity to extend our traditional sports marketing offerings to brand partners, both now and when sports resume, and we're proud to lean in with the Big 12 to create a unique offering for its member schools, students and fans. Working with an established esports technology leader like Mainline affords both the schools and brands another powerful way to connect with students who love to game and compete.

Madden Summer Challenge: An Esports First for the Big 12 Conference and its Members

Client

Learfield IMG

The Big 12 had brought up the idea of trying to figure out something to do in the midst of this unprecedented student downtime and they came to us. We already had established a relationship with Mainline and its CEO Chris Buckner and it made a lot of sense to try and put something together with the Big 12. That was the catalyst for the Madden Summer Challenge. And here we are.
