Feb. 24, 2021; Atlanta, GA-- Come celebrate Black History Month with Black eSports Network’s (BESNTV’s) inaugural season of our new esports league: the #BLK10!
In March, to celebrate Women in Gaming, we will be launching our all-women’s esports league, the #PNK10!
Ten black college teams will face off in a ten-week tournament to win scholarship money for their school and other prizes!
“The goal is to get more future teenagers enrolled [with] these colleges through esports events held at these schools for higher education,” said BESN.TV’s founder and CEO Tim Fields.
Fighting games are the theme for our Season One tournament, Week One featuring Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V. Both of these esports leagues will be broadcasting through YouTube Gaming, Facebook, Twitch, and our official website.
BESN.TV’s desire for more minority representation in esports—and the video gaming industry—has paved the way for this tournament, especially with help from our sponsors: HyperX, Red Bull Gaming, YouTube Gaming, Twitch, and Evil Geniuses.
HyperX has gone from making memory drives to having a wide range of products such as microphones, gaming headsets, keyboards, mice, and mouse pads. Thanks to HyperX’s sponsorship with BESN.TV, the tournament first, second, and third prize winners will receive HyperX products for their placements, along with the scholarship money for their school!
Vince Quan, Marketing Coordinator at HyperX, spoke on partnering with BESN.TV: “We at HyperX are proud to come aboard as the official gaming peripheral partner for the first season of BESNTV’s #BLK10 and #PNK10 Esports Leagues. BESNTV’s vision of promoting the representation for gamers of color aligns perfectly with HyperX’s goal to support gaming communities and esports of all kinds. At HyperX, We’re All Gamers.”For more information about HyperX, go to HyperXgaming.com.
The action all begins Thursday, Feb. 25, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST. See You There!
