F1 Esports Series claims prestigious industry award
August 21, 2018
We are proud to announce that the F1 Esports Series has won the Outstanding Digital Achievement Award at the 2018 SVG Europe Sport Production Awards. Since its inauguration in 2017, the F1 Esports Series has gone from strength-to-strength, and this award is recognition of the progress made in such a short space of time.
With over 30 finalists across five categories, this year’s SVG Europe Sport Production Awards have been extremely competitive, with a star-studded ceremony for the winners coming up on 13 September in Amsterdam.
“We are thrilled to be awarded Outstanding Digital Achievement at the 2018 Sports Production Awards,” says Julian Tan, Head of Growth and F1 Esports. “To be named best innovation and production made available via digital distribution methods is a big milestone for us as we continue to work hard towards building an innovative and unique proposition, combining the power of esports with the magic of Formula 1.
It’s great validation for the phenomenal job everyone involved in this project is doing, from the great team we have at F1 to our fantastic partners at Codemasters and Gfinity to the official F1 teams and beyond. Of course, at the very heart of our esports programme, it is about creating a fresh and exciting proposition for our new and existing fans and we see this award as acknowledgement to our efforts to bring great, high quality offerings to them through accessible channels in an effort to get them closer to our great sport.”
