METRO SPORTS PARTNERS WITH MICROSOFT STORE TO DELIVER ESPORTS AND LIVE MUSIC TOURS ACROSS AMERICA
Philadelphia, PA -- The Metro Sports and Entertainment Group (Metro-Sports) today announces a new partnership with Microsoft Stores to create a unique Esports & Live-Music college tour produced for live-stream viewing, along with Pro Gamer & Professional Game Developer workshops, targeting under-privileged youth from 12-18 years of age. The partnership features the 2019 Metro-Fest, a multi-city digital sports and music festival beginning in the fall, that will include live-music performances, a technology product expo, and custom amateur video-game competition for prizes, that could include a full semester of paid tuition.
"We are entering a new era of live-stream entertainment, and Esports is leading the pack as the fastest growing sport in the world. As content and cultural experience creators, The Metro-Sports Group is incredibly excited to partner with Microsoft Store; to attract, engage, and influence a largely underserved multicultural community of gaming, music and technology enthusiasts. We plan to reach a massive digital audience as well, led by our distribution partnership with media guru, Keith Clinkscales' cultural sports platform, The Shadow League," said Shaon Berry, CEO of Metro Sports.
