With fast-paced action that is addictive for players and viewers, Venture Valley is pioneering a new type of esport."
As the exclusive esports launch partner for Venture Valley, Super League will be developing multiple initiatives across its proprietary properties and within its social and digital distribution channels. Included within the program will be weekly online competitions enabling players to compete for everything from bragging rights to exciting prizes, with top players being celebrated within the Super League and emerging Venture Valley communities. Super League also will produce a collegiate Venture Valley championship tournament, complete with a live esports broadcast of the finals, leveraging Super League's patented gameplay visualization technology.
