Michael Aragon, Senior Vice President of Content at Twitch.tv expressed:
Partnering with FACEIT to provide a Premium Pass for the FACEIT London Major reflects our ongoing efforts to increase the interactivity of esports.
Since Twitch has already made spectating a live, interactive, shared form of entertainment with features such as Extensions, Cheering, Drops, and exclusive offers via Twitch Prime, our recent focus on passes adds another compelling layer to the social video experience.
Michele Attisani, Chief Business Officer & Co-Founder of FACEIT is excited to offer the audience an innovative viewing experience:
The Major is the most prestigious CS:GO tournament and sees the highest level of competition from the best teams. This is the time when fans want to learn even more about the teams they love. We want to offer our audience new innovative and interactive viewing opportunities and we see Premium Passes like this partnership with Twitch as an evolution of traditional esports content.
The Premium Pass will encompass the on-going New Legends stage of the Major, as well as the New Champions stage, taking place on Sep. 20-23. For those interested in purchasing the pass, head over to the FACEIT Premium Twitch.tv channel and subscribe.
