The Simulation Football League presented by APM Music is proud to announce for the first time in SFL history a traveling SFL headquarters to MediaTech Institute, where the SFL Championship Game will broadcast from on Tuesday April 24 on the Twitch Front Page at 7 CT.
“We’re so thrilled to be partnering up with MediaTech for this historic occasion,” said Commissioner Cameron Irvine. “This is a critical next few months in our history as the SFL takes steps to legitimize its new, engaging and innovative form of esports. Our friends at MediaTech are the perfect partners to not only host this game, but to find new minds and talent to help the SFL grow and thrive.”
MediaTech’s Dallas campus consists of seven professional studios, a Live Sound stage with hard cyc green screen, edit-bays, and more housed across a 37,000 square-foot facility. MediaTech provide students with a comprehensive selection of academic curricula in digital technology, media recording as well as specialized areas enriched with instruction in general multimedia production, business structures and communications.
“MediaTech absolutely loves the SFL and it’s futuristic take on esports,” said Eric Jewell, MediaTech Digital Film Director. “Our school is training the next generation of media professionals, so we see this partnership as a perfect fit.”
The SFL’s 10th Championship Game is the fourth front page event on Twitch for the league. The last – Wild Card Wednesday – garnered records in peak, average and total viewers – topping 100,000. The game pits the SFL’s two best teams from the regular season – the Alaska Storm (12-2) and the Tallahassee Pride (14-0).
MediaTech joins APM Music, Richards Printworks, Scorestream and Showbusiness Studios as new partners with the SFL in Season 10. Look out for more exciting announcements from the SFL in the coming weeks.
