Hosting a LAN Event for Viewers in Finland

Given all of the recent issues surrounding the Covid pandemic and LAN tournament Covid cases, the Red Bull Flick Invitational will provide a unique LAN experience for people who attend the event. That being said, European LAN events in esports are running better than in North America. Furthermore, new cases for Covid-19 are also dropping in Finland since a July 2021 peak.
