What Is Esports?
Esports, also known as electronic sports, is a form of competitive video gaming. It involves organized tournaments and leagues that are broadcasted online or on television for spectators to watch. Esports has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the rise of streaming platforms such as Twitch and YouTube Gaming. Professional gamers compete against each other in various games such as League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota 2, Overwatch, Call of Duty and more. The goal is usually to win money prizes by being the best at their respective game.
The esports industry has grown exponentially over the past decade with millions of viewers tuning into major events around the world every year. Major organizations have invested heavily in teams and players who can represent them at these events while sponsorships from companies like Intel, Red Bull and Coca Cola have helped fuel its growth even further. With an estimated global audience size reaching 454 million people in 2020 alone it’s clear that esports isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
