All of the big esports events around the world are going live on Saturday, but only one will actually be played live, with a different country’s team competing against another.
The Westgate sports and entertainment complex in Las Vegas will play host to a tournament with the International Champions of Sports, the International Association of Athletics Federations, and the International Basketball Federation.
That means the United States will be hosting the first ever professional basketball tournament in North America, and Australia will be playing host to the first professional soccer tournament in Australia.
The World Cup, which begins in 2022, will also be held there, with the host nation participating in the tournament alongside the host country and host country’s most popular team.
The event, which is slated to be held on August 8 and 9, will be streamed on the official website of Westgate Entertainment, which owns and operates the complex.
There’s no word on the exact date the event will kick off, but if it’s happening in the first half of next year, it will mark the first time in the world that an NBA team will play a professional sports game.
The International Champions will be the defending champion in their respective tournament.
“The world is coming to a standstill,” Westgate Sports and Entertainment CEO Mark Ritchie said in a statement.
“We’ve seen unprecedented interest and demand for our events, which have become a major part of the entertainment experience for fans worldwide.”
There will be live streaming of the event on the Westgates own YouTube channel.
Westgate says it will “continue to support the event with the highest standards,” including making sure that the game is available for all audiences, and that it doesn’t play a game that’s played in a foreign country.
Westgate Entertainment is owned by the same company that owns ESPN and NBCUniversal.
The company has also hosted a number of events in Asia and Africa.
The team that wins the tournament will take home a $20,000 prize pool and the prize money from the tournament is expected to be between $5,000 and $10,000.
The tournament will be broadcast live on ESPN2 and WatchESPN, with all other local, national, and international channels slated to have coverage starting around August 9.
It’s also expected that ESPN will air a live game between the United Arab Emirates and Morocco, with both teams likely playing the first game of the tournament on August 9, according to a report from Reuters.
The news comes as a shock to many.
WestGates sports and media division has been operating the WestGate Sports Complex for more than a decade.
WestGate Entertainment has been owned by NBCUniversal since 2014, and it’s a subsidiary of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which is the umbrella organization that oversees video games and entertainment.
The ESA was formed in 2013 to help create more diversity in the games industry, and its members are the largest publishers of video games in the U.S., according to the ESA.
