  1. Might be a daft question but is there anyway to watch this in the UK if you just have freeview?

    • Not on TV by the looks of things but it’ll be streamed on places like Twitch and the official Evo site.

      • Ah thanks. Been interested in checking one of these out, specifically the Rocket League competition.
