Thursday 20 June 2019 | 12:02 CET | News
Mexican broadcaster and content producer TV Azteca is set to launch the country's first electronic sports channel after investing in Allied Esports Entertainment, reports Bloomberg, citing the latter's CEO Frank Ng. Azteca is buying USD 5 million worth of shares in Black Ridge Acquisition Corp., which will become Allied Esports Entertainment following its imminent acquisition of two closely held brands, said the report. The two groups will then create a 24-hour digital e-sports channel in Mexico targeted at a younger demographic to help promote gaming across the region.
