TWITCH RIVALS: STREAMER BOWL
Football is one of the most watched programming on terrestrial broadcast and Fortnite is one of the most played games on earth. Twitch is bringing them both together in a never-been-done crossover event of ridiculous proportion! For the first time ever the NFLPA, Epic Games, and Twitch Rivals are collaborating to produce a series of gaming live broadcasts & events.
