09/23/21: TwitchCon rolled out its 2022 plans

 

Medias First Morning Read

 

Thursday September 23, 2021

Good morning! This is your weekly Esports Brief.
TwitchCon is back, as Twitch formally unveiled plans to return to in-person (although remaining “flexible”) events for the gathering in 2022 with date for both North American and European TwitchCons revealed via Twitter. North American TwitchCon will take place in San Diego in October of next year, while Amsterdam plays host to the European version next July.

In bringing back the event, which missed both 2020 as well as this year’s version, Twitch stated that with 2021 serving as the company’s biggest year of viewership growth and content creation. TwitchCon 2022 would serve as an outlet for new streamers in a move to “meet the communities they’ve created or been welcomed into.”

COMPETITION
Speaking of a return, DreamHack comes back to the Elmia Congress Center in Jönköping, Sweden for DreamHack Winter from Nov. 25-28. The LAN-only event will “celebrate DreamHack’s roots and beginnings” with four days of LAN activities, a small Expo, and a Main Stage with the event limited to 3222 LAN guests who will be required to show proof of vaccination or take an on-site Covid test upon arrival. The last pre-pandemic festival was DreamHack Anaheim in February 2020. “DreamHack has always been a place where you can come to connect, explore, win, play, and be yourself — so to be able to offer our first in-person in Sweden, where DreamHack began, means a lot to us,” said Marcus Lindmark, President DreamHack, SVP Project and Event Operations at ESL Gaming. “Gaming brought, and kept, us together over the last year and a half, so we know how much our visitors have missed these festivals and the community they offer. We have followed the guidance of health officials to implement some safety measures that we believe will allow everyone to have a safe experience at DreamHack Winter.”

Riot Games’ first-ever Wild Rift Horizon Cup will land in Singapore starting November 13.

The event will run in Bucharest, Romania, with tickets going on sale starting Sept. 22. Valve and its organizing partners are requiring every attendee to be at least 10 days past their final vaccination shot. All attendees will need to show proof of vaccination status and a valid ID.

STREAM HATCHET TRENDS
Live streaming platforms like Twitch have been slowly expanding beyond gaming content. Podcasts, talk shows, and even financial news have emerged as topics of interest. Along with these new content opportunities lies the abundance of live streamed sports games. In the age of cable cutting, sites like Twitch or YouTube could be the perfect home for sports with the added benefits of reaching new, younger audiences while also leveraging live chat. This week, Stream Hatchet analyzes the growth of sports content on Twitch in 2021.
· The “Sports” category on Twitch has increased 151% from January to August this year. The inclusion of leagues like the NBA using Twitch to broadcast playoff games has substantially helped the growth.
· The NFL extended its deal with Amazon to stream all Thursday Night Football games on Twitch from 2023-2033. This will likely continue to push sports towards live streaming and raise the category’s viewership to new heights.
· Many sports leagues and even individual teams already have Twitch channels making the conversion to live streaming almost seamless. However, broadcast rights remain the biggest obstacle.
