LOS ANGELES, July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc.

NFL Tuesday Night Gaming’s second season generated major growth, totaling over 111 million total impressions across all platforms, a 53% growth compared to the inaugural 2022 season. NFL TNG also worked with twice as many media sponsors, growing from 11 in the inaugural season to over 24 throughout Season Two.
