Hey Sports Tech Fans,
Super quick one this week as I have been busy working on a live show format for Twitch for the Champions League that will be launching next week for the quarter finals.
It would be great if you could follow LiveDuel on Twitch to be part of something entertaining and interactive for the remaining Champions League fixtures this month.
Have a great sporting weekend.
