“The season starts when the season starts.” We had to deliver exactly on time, with no room for error, which required careful planning, close collaboration with all stakeholders and many cans of redbull.

75k+ content hours

The league’s largest content library available anywhere – breaking news, analysis, game highlights, live interviews, and over 3000 hours of new content published per week.

100M+ fans

Hundreds of millions of rabid fans waiting for season start meant we had to architect for scale, and diligently load test and remove bottlenecks, in order to withstand game day demand.
