Fox Sports will air an esports tournament on March 29th at 7 pm Eastern, where people will compete in 'Madden NFL 20.' The tournament will last for two hours and have three rounds where players will play a single-elimination match to move on. Fox Sports will also encourage viewers to make donations to the CDC, where the money will be put toward COVID-19 relief efforts.
The esports tournament comes in the wake of the esports racing event held by the network, which was a success. The use of esports tournaments also shows that the network is adapting to the circumstances, where conventional sporting events cannot take place. Additionally, if esports continue to have success, they may reach a more mainstream audience.
