This past weekend, ESPN‘s ESPN2 network and Sky Atlantic introduced The World Excel Championships. The unique display shared the evolution of Esports, which saw competitors solve financial problems with Microsoft Excel. Organized by the Financial Modelling World Cup, the recent showing was a replay of the “All-Star Battle” stage from last May featuring previous champions and runner-ups.
Complete with scorecards, commentators and game analysis, the competition was composed of 30-minute showings of specific task completion. Tasks not only tested competitors’ Excel skills, but also mental mathematics prowess in a unique showing of head-to-head Excel showdowns.
