Champs Sports today announces the launch of two new digital franchises, “Out of Control” and “Fouled Out.” The episodic content will be hosted by social media influencers Jesser and B Dot.
“We are always exploring new ways to connect with the many facets of our customers’ passions, including sport, lifestyle, art and gaming,” says Jason Brown, Vice President of Marketing, Champs Sports. “We are excited about the new partnerships with Jesser and B Dot as we continue to grow and evolve our offering of digital content.”
Champs Sports’ first-ever gaming series, “Out of Control,” will put host, Jesser, head-to-head against top professional athletes, celebrities and pop culture personalities in a spirited gaming match, inclusive of NBA 2K, Fortnite and more.
“I have always been a huge fan of Champs Sports, and I am so excited to partner with them as their host of Out of Control,” says gaming influencer and NBA 2K star, Jesser. “Tune in for some tough competition as I take on the best undercover gamers of today!”
In the next episode, Jesser takes on NBA star, De’Aaron Fox. The duo talk sports, gaming and pop culture, with a side of trash talk, all while rocking the latest styles from Champs Sports. The pilot episode – which first aired last December – featured E-Sportscaster D1 and rapper YBN Almighty Jay. “Out of Control” will air bi-weekly on Champs TV.
“Fouled Out” is hosted exclusively by YouTube sensation, B Dot, and draws inspiration from timely social media content to provide hilarious and uplifting commentary of the best sports clips and memes of the month. Focused on sports-culture moments, the monthly franchise will highlight categories such as “best dunk,” “best handshake,” “best end zone dance” and more.
“I’ve built my platform by combining comedy with sports-culture, and I am excited to continue delivering that to young sports fans through Champs Sports’ new series, Fouled Out,” says comedian, B Dot. “Get ready for some laughs, and if you’re lucky enough, you may get featured!”
