ONE Champion has clinched a global partnership with Facebook covering distribution of exclusive content on Facebook Watch under the newly launched ONE Esports Facebook Gaming channel. The custom content includes unique camera angles, behind-the-scenes footage and more, exclusively made for Facebook Watch and IGTV.
Meanwhile, the new ONE Championship and ONE Esports Facebook Gaming channel will offer ONE's top athletes a chance to stream gameplay and gaming commentary. Additionally, the partnership also features the launch of "Only on Oculus" VR content in the Venues app for Oculus Quest.
ONE Championship's group COO Vijayarajan said its long term partnership with Facebook has been crucial in allowing the brand to build reach and audiences worldwide.
"We are excited to expand our partnership and leverage the power of the Facebook platform, be that VR with Oculus, the rapid growth of esports and community gaming with Facebook Gaming, or simply non-stop action clips for Facebook Watch you cannot find anywhere else," he added.
Facebook Asia Pacific's director sports partnerships Joyee Biswas said community is at the core of ONE Championship and Facebook will continue to help the company reach its audiences. "The announcement today to also bring content to the Oculus platform is testament to ONE Championship’s ability to anticipate where their community will engage and create a meaningful experience for fans," she added.
