What is esport all about?

According to the most common definition, electronic sports, or esport is defined as professional players competing in video games in an organized manner. The mechanics of esport are not so different from traditional sports. Professional players are competing in different games and viewers get what has been the foundation of entertainment for thousands of years: community experience.

Why is this interesting for business?

Due to the unexpected and explosive growth of the esport market, economic players are now looking for opportunities of getting involved in the industry. For new players entering the esport arena, it’s crucial to look into the historic development of esport, the direction its development may take and the role they can potentially play in its future.
