Pay-television broadcaster Polsat will air coverage of the Ekstraklasa Games, a new esports tournament organised by production company ESL in partnership with Poland’s top-tier football league and game developer EA Sports.
The tournament will run from March to May this year, with Polsat broadcasting league matches and the ‘Grand Finals’ event on its Polsat Games channel. Polsat Games was launched in October 2018.
ESL organise the tournament which is played on EA Sport’s Fifa 2019 game. The Ekstraklasa Games will be a part of the EA Sports Fifa 19 Global Series and therefore players can qualify for the 2019 Fifa eWorld Cup.
EA Sports has already partnered with several other European leagues for the Global Series including the English Premier League, Denmark’s SuperLiga and Sweden’s Allsvenskan.
The Ekstraklasa has been in partnership with the Lagardère Sports agency to develop its own esports competitions and strategy since March 2018.
