The partnership will see Verizon’s tools, services and techstack integrated into WCF’s new PlayerX platform.

“While the way we watch, interact, and participate in esports evolves, PlayerX is leveraging 5G to deliver the pinnacle of immersive esports-meets-fantasy sports experiences for fans,” said Mike Caralis, Verizon Business VP of Business Markets. 

“We are excited for this opportunity to partner with such an innovative, forward-thinking company that is ready to tap the full potential of the rapidly growing esports and gaming markets.”

Through Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, esports fans can compete in fantasy leagues on the PlayerX platform, watching exclusive live feeds and accessing real-time stats.

Through customisable interactive avatars, theme music and chat capabilities, users can define the persona, look and feel of their teams.

Verizon noted: “Beyond the fantasy sports application, PlayerX subscribers will also no longer have to search across multiple platforms for the most up-to-date information and highlights of their favourite streamers and athletes – it will all be housed on one non-gambling focused platform that is suitable for all ages – PlayerX.”

WCF CEO Mike Vela commented: “At WCF, we’re fundamentally changing how gamers will experience esports and Verizon is the only partner with the technological innovation and industry savvy vision to help us completely advance and elevate our PlayerX platform.

“For the first time ever, users will be able to access seamless streaming player data and video through advanced capabilities and utilise one-touch video conference solutions, through BlueJeans, to create watch party and fan engagement environments. 

“Through this partnership, gamers, streamers and fantasy players can have the most advanced and unmatched user experience.”
