Enthusiast Gaming and WePlay Studios have extended their partnership for the second season of the popular American gaming show, NFL Tuesday Night Gaming, which began in the fall of 2023.
NFL Tuesday Night Gaming is a weekly online show where players and legends of the National Football League (NFL) compete with popular gaming influencers in various computer games.
The Ukrainian production company WePlay Studios, in collaboration with Enthusiast Gaming, is responsible for the show's execution. It is filmed at the WePlay Esports Arena in Los Angeles, USA, which is designed for creating high-security content. The WePlay team works on the setup and live broadcasts, creating graphic materials, computer graphics, and augmented reality elements for the stream, along with additional videos featuring NFL players and influencers.
In the second season, special attention was given to revealing the participants from a different perspective and sharing insights into their personal lives, interests, and hobbies. In the summer, before the new season, Enthusiast Gaming and the NFL organized media days at NFL's Champions Field for WePlay Studios to shoot additional videos about the NFL TNG players, their training, and interactions. These videos are broadcast during live streams when the participants appear on stage.
The WePlay team also fine-tuned AR/XR widgets for the broadcasts to achieve a sense of physical presence for all participants on stage, even if they are hundreds of kilometers away from the shooting location. To convey the atmosphere of a sports competition, the production team specially designed stage decorations that blend the style of American football with gaming culture.
"This season, we aim to create more iconic content that allows viewers to learn more about their idols from the world of sports and gaming. During the break between seasons, we didn't waste time – we worked on solutions and technologies capable of blurring the line between the offline and online worlds. Our experts are ready to amaze and prove that Ukrainian production companies are among the strongest players in the market," comments Maksym Bilonogov, Chief Visionary Officer and General Producer at WePlay Studios.
"WePlay Studios not only provides top production services but also demonstrates unparalleled creativity and a sincere commitment to excellence. I'm delighted that they are with us again as the official production partner of NFL TNG in our second season. Together, we are creating something special," assures Matt Goodman, Executive Vice President of Enthusiast Gaming for Strategic Partnerships.
