Huya will have eclusive broadcast rights at ESL & DreamHack for Chinese
ESL and DreamHack have entered into an agreement to broadcast all e-sports events in Chinese languages exclusively on Huya's streaming platform. This is reported on the official website of the Swedish holding Modern Times Group, which owns these tournament operators.
The deal provides for a partnership until the end of 2020. Huya will cover tournaments of the global series ESL Pro Tour, which includes ESL Pro League, ESL One, Intel Extreme Masters, DreamHack Masters, DreamHack Open and national championships from ESL.
In September 2019, ESL attracted Huya's investment to host global tournaments in China. The Streaming Platform became a minority shareholder in MTG's subsidiary and co-owner of the tournament operator's Chinese division.
The closest tournament in the ESL Pro Tour series will be ESL One Cologne 2020, which will run online from August 18-30. The European Championship will play $325,000, the North American Championship will play $135,000, and the Asia/Oceania prize pool will be $20,000.
