WICHITA, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Unified has established itself as a premier tournament operator in esports for both online and physical events. With roots in the Midwest, Unified now offers live esports events across North America. To help catalogue and distribute both photo and video content from past and future tournaments, Unified will be partnering with ESPAT AI.

“It’s a win for esports and for our attendees, to be able to showcase these great players and organizations with their emergence in the scene or their assertion of skills across competitions,” said Unified Event Director, Rebecca Rong. “Through on-site tournaments, we’re giving attendees of all skill levels the chance to face-off on the big stage and to play like the pros. Through ESPAT, we are able to distribute high quality content through new channels and share these victories on a whole new level.”
“We are excited to welcome Unified to the ESPAT family,” said ESPAT CEO, Matt Hill. “As we focus on servicing the broader gaming community, it is important that we support players and organizations at all levels of esports. This partnership with Unified allows us to highlight the players at the youth and amateur levels on their path to pro.”
