The Adidas Gauntlet Series is off to a great start with tough competition and impressive individual play from the best High School players around the country. Along with on-court success, the Gauntlet Series is more accessible than ever before thanks to live streaming partnerships with Twitch and basketball media powerhouse Ballislife. With 750,000 views across the streaming platforms, in the first two weeks, Adidas Gauntlet is revolutionizing the way basketball showcases are broadcasted and covered.
Week 1 of the Gauntlet Series featured regionals in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Indianapolis, and Dallas. Thanks to Ballislife, BallerTV and our own livestream, games from each location were simultaneously streamed throughout the weekend. For weekend 2, teams converged in Atlanta with 18 different games streamed through Twitch and an additional 2 Ballislife streams.
Along with livestreamed games, Ballislife posted highlights from the most exciting games of the Gauntlet Series. During the first week in Los Angeles, video highlights from EBO and Jalen Green’s game against Dream Vision and Kyree Walker have already reached upwards of 130,000 views. Fans also tuned in from ten different countries, giving the Gauntlet Series global reach. Gauntlet publicity even made its way to ESPN, with EBO’s star player and #1 recruit in the 2020 class, Jalen Green, making it onto SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays.
Up next in the Gauntlet series are regional qualifiers in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C on May 25-27 as well as two more regionals in Atlanta and Dallas on May 26-28. Following the conclusion of all regional qualifiers, there will be a Gauntlet Finale in New York City from July 12-15 as well as the Los Angeles Summer Championships from July 18-22.
