Dedicated directory for esports launched by Twitch

Twitch has created a dedicated directory for esports tournaments, teams and players.

Twitch’s newly created esports section includes a directory listing live tournaments, a list of Live players signed up with professional organisations, tailored reviews based on user experience, and a subdirectory recording active tournaments and lights. The section includes “Esports Streaming Environment more intuitive and available.”

Earlier this week, Twitch entered into a 3-year deal with ESL and DreamHack that would make the tournament organiser the “big” world’s exclusive digital partner – including the IEM, the DreamHack Masters and DreamHack Open, the ESL Pro Tour and DreamHack Pro League.

Last November Juked began their open beta in San Francisco – a grouping of Twitch, Mixer, and other streaming networks that broadcast sports competitions.

The platform now includes tools including an esports calendar with reminders and VODs as the platform has expanded. Popdog presented a term similar to Juked last week.
