According to ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell, the Red Bull Rise Till Dawn event was sold out just three hours after it was revealed. Not surprisingly so, the event formed from a partnership between a global energy drink company such as Red Bull and the most popular streamer on Twitch was sure to attract enough fans to fill almost the entirety of Willis Tower where it will be taking place.
Red Bull has signed @Ninja to an endorsement deal. Deal includes "Red Bull Rise Till Dawn" Fortnite event, where fans can challenge him at the game at Chicago’s Willis Tower on July 21.
The event has already sold out.
