Enthusiast Gaming Holdings (EGLX) is partnering with the National Football League (NFL) to launch NFL Tuesday Night Gaming.

NFL Tuesday Night Gaming, debuting September 13 at 6:30 pm ET on YouTube, is where teams will compete head-to-head across popular video game titles.

During the 2022-2023 NFL regular season, fans in Canada and the U.S. can expect to see a rotating roster of 12 NFL players or legends and 6 gaming creators competing across three game titles each week in an exciting new format.

After each week’s gameplay, teams will be ranked with the top four teams qualifying for a single-elimination playoff, where one team will be crowned champion of the inaugural NFL Tuesday Night Gaming season.

The first season will conclude with an All-Star Game coinciding with Super Bowl Week. Fans will choose their favorite NFL players or Legends and gaming content creators to compete in a special edition gaming night. The winning team will receive a cash prize to donate to the charity of their choice.

NFL Family Game Night is designed as a platform for families and younger fans to play alongside their favorite players and gamers in a fun and entertaining format.

In addition to the weekly live streamed gameplay, this partnership will also deliver daily, always-on content throughout the season, including, pre-and post-game analysis, highlights, plays of the week, and more, leveraging the scale of the NFL and Enthusiast Gaming’s network of gaming assets.
