CS: GO ESports Brodacasts Coming to TV in AustraliaPublished October 24, 2015 by Vlad G
eSports continues to grow as the upcoming CS: GO tournament will be broadcasted by Fox Sports 1 in Australia for fans to enjoy live.
The world of eSports has increased significantly over the last few years and it continues to grow as more and more viewers watch the major tournaments for the games they like. Counter Strike has always been a fan favorite and with the launch of the Global Offensive version, the title continues its role in the eSports world. In fact, it will soon air on TV in Australia in order to reach even more people.
Fox Sports to broadcast full games
Fox Sports 1 has set aside a slot in its schedule for Australian viewers and it is reserved for the big tournament on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scheduled to soon take place. Being one of the big sports broadcasters in the country, Fox will further solidify the importance of eSports in the current viewing landscape and maybe even make room for other games to follow. This will mark the first time when full matches of Counter-Strike are shown on TV, rather than just highlights from the games.
International tournaments are increasing from one year to the next and with the help of crowd funding events, the prize pools can reach millions of dollars, allowing the best players in the world to compete for a very significant win. With the competitive nature of games like League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike, watching the tournaments can be very exciting for fans.
Betting on the matches
Similar to other sports, tournaments for eSports can attract a lot of punters who wish to bet on their favorite teams and win real money from their support and knowledge of the game. Several of the biggest bookmakers on the internet already offer gambling options in this regard and brands like bet365, Winner and Betway have entire sections for eSports, complete with betting options, odds and more.
Punters can bet on the matches much like they would on the Champions League events.
