ESPN has already hopped onto the rise of eSports, and now the network is getting in on drone racing too. Today, the International Drone Racing Association announced that it is partnering with ESPN on a “multi-year” deal. ESPN will cover its competitive events, the first one being August’s US National Drone Racing Championships on Governor’s Island in New York City. Live coverage of the event will stream on the WatchESPN app for fans as well. Will you be tuning in?
