Lots of streamers, American football pro-players, and casual Fortnite fans – this combination is the main feature of Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl II feat. Fortnite. In this article, Esports Charts will tell you whether the final was able to overtake the pre-game stage in terms of viewership statistics and who became the champion of the tournament.
Fortnite's Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl II is an event hosted by Twitch and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) featuring 90 Fortnite content creators, pro players, and amateurs. The first season took place offline, but with much fewer participants back then. The second season was moved online, allowing all English-speaking streamers who were unable to come to last year’s LAN to join the event.
To level the playing field, each streamer had to recruit one professional football player and one Fortnite player to their team. The event was divided into several stages: four weeks of pre-game (which we have overviewed in the Twitch Rivals results for December 2020-January 2021) and the final stage in February 2021.
The charity was yet another feature of Streamer Bowl II. In the pre-game, the participants fought for a charitable prize fund of $250K, and in the final – for a whole $1M! The winners sent the money to the charities of their own choice.
Viewership statistics of Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl II feat. Fortnite
A huge number of streamers are bound to produce an equally huge number of streams. However, the official Twitch Rivals came out on top with 78K peak viewers, becoming the most popular of all channels.
As for the leader among the streamers, that would be Nickmercs with his 58K viewers. The tournament was not limited to the English-speaking streamers alone. 11% of hours watched came from Hispanic viewers and 88% from English-speaking content creators. When it comes to the Hispanic crowd, juansguarnizo became the most popular streamer with 23K peak viewers.
The victory in the Streamer Bowl was celebrated for the second year in a row by the team of YouTuber Clix. Last year, Cody performed alongside Tarik Cohen, the Chicago Bears running back. They played together again this year, now joined by an aspiring streamer Xacial. Clix himself gathered 47K peak viewers, entering the top 3 most popular streamers.
Evidently, the final stage showed the best results among the entire series. A comparison of the indicators to those of the third week (the pre-game’s most popular one) shows that the numbers have increased twice or thrice.
As for the last year, the tournament’s transition in an online format only benefited it: hours watched increased by 110% (but note that Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl II lasted 2 hours longer), and the peak viewers indicator grew by 23.4%. Thanks to the online format, the number of famous participants has increased dramatically, which attracted more viewers to the broadcasts.
