Baltimore Ravens, an American professional football team based in Baltimore, has launched Ravens Gaming League, a new gaming and esports initiative and platform where fans of the team and league can participate in esports competitions and activities.

The initiative will launch with a Fortnite tournament (June 25-27), while a second tournament, featuring Madden NFL 22, will be held later this summer.

As part of the Ravens’ new eSports initiative, the team also entered into a multi-year partnership with Esports Entertainment Group (EEG) to become an esports tournament provider. EEG will operate esports tournaments for the Ravens by utilizing the company’s Esports Gaming League (EGL) platform.

“Our esports tournament platform continues to gain strong traction among top-tier professional sports franchises. We are delighted to add the Ravens as our first NFL partner to go live on our platform,” Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Gaming League, said.

“We are excited to launch this new initiative and explore the benefits for our fans. The gaming and esports industry offer unique opportunities to engage with our fan base, in addition to Ravens players who have shown interest in gaming and esports,” Brad Downs, senior vice president of marketing at Ravens, said.
