When the Seattle Seahawks solved some problems on the field this season, the team announced a new plan this week to attract fans to some off-site games.
A new game community called Seahawks sandbox has been launched. It aims to bring 12 people together and hold a video game championship every week. Fans can compete in the competition and win prizes. According to Seahawk, the platform will host 50 different competitions on Xbox, PlayStation, switch and PC throughout the season, including 14 different sports, racing, Royal combat and fighting games.
The team will host a game with video game influencers and Seahawks players, and there will be more than $5000 in bonuses to compete for this season.
The Seahawks also launched a YouTube channel dedicated to sandbox activities. The content will be released throughout the year by Seattle player and influencer Marcel “basically idowrk” Cunningham and two-time Madden club champion Daniel “dcroft” mycroft. Livestreams will compete with weekly Seahawks opponents and well-known players in Madden community.
The Seahawks are the first team in the American Football League to launch a dedicated game YouTube channel. However, the team has been in the game field for some time. As early as March 2017, it held the crazy 17 championship in Seattle. In 2019, they held the NFL E-sports week for the first time, and held many online competitions last year.
In addition to the highly competitive E-sports experience, the Seahawks will also hold minecraft realms for fans who want to develop in this popular game world.
David young, chief operating officer of Seahawks, said in a statement: “we have been looking for opportunities to further contact our fans off the pitch. We know that E-sports and games are something our fans and players like.”.
Seahawks sandbox is located on the game platform rival, which connects sports teams and other brands with users interested in games and E-sports. Professional teams, such as the Detroit Pistons in the NBA, the Arizona wolves in the NHL, and the European football team, all use this platform.
Fans who want to participate in the game can register their player code here and start winning points.
