Introducing Go Next Media

Go Next Media (GNM) is the new home of Snowball Esports, Fireball Esports and the upcoming Oceanic Observer.

Snowball was founded when two Australian-based esports fans became frustrated about the lack of central coverage for all things Oceanic Pro League. They were hoping to make an impact on the coverage, and now years later their initial passion project has grown into a platform for Oceanic narrative-based esports content across multiple games.

We want to tell the player’s stories, engage fans of each competition, and enrich the experience of local esports across Australia and New Zealand.

With that said, there are challenges with the above. Snowball Esports has been bracketed by the limitations of simply covering angles of Oceanic esports, and the content is targeted at fans who are already consuming content surrounding the leagues. With the fantastic team that we’ve built over the years, we felt the need to extend cover beyond those early boundaries.

The first was Fireball Esports, a satirical publication based around providing amusing and comedic takes on global esports. This different approach to news within the boundaries of the Fireball moniker allows us to provide a unique point of view on many breaking news stories.

The second is a new project titled ‘The Oceanic Observer’. We’re aiming to fully implement its coverage in 2020. The Observer will release a regularly scheduled recap on all things Oceanic esports, allowing the construction of a community that discusses the topics of the industry while also consuming the news. This will be delivered as text-based information, as well as in a podcast format.

Outside of this, Go Next presents the opportunity to collaborate on a wider range of projects. In its current state, GNM has experience with audio, video, and extensive experience in written content. We want to bring more people into our journey. We’re here for the long run, and we want to see Australian and New Zealand esports continue to flourish for years to come.
