What Is esports

E-sports (also known as electronic sportse-sports, or eSports) is a form of competition using video games. Most commonly, E-sports takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams. Although organized online and offline competitions have long been a part of video game culture, these were largely between amateurs until the late 2000s, when participation by professional gamers and spectatorship in these events through live streaming saw a large surge in popularity. By the 2010s, E-sports was a significant factor in the video game industry, with many game developers actively designing toward a professional E-sports subculture.

Changes Brought by esports

The world of sports and entertainment is one that is constantly evolving, and every year seems to give rise to some new dawn or new innovation, which changes how these industries engage with their fans and audiences. The astonishing rise in the popularity of eSports (Electronic Sports) has been phenomenal to behold. Once, the realm of computer games and competitive gaming started as friends gathering in each other’s homes to host LAN parties and playing into the night. Today, it has not only grown up as a discipline, with a generation-spanning audience of millions, but it has also become a multi-billion-dollar industry, complete with large-scale eSports events, online gaming experiences which crisscross the globe in real-time, and incredible potential for brand sponsorship and marketing. 

It’s more than fair to say that eSports has well and truly left behind its niche and countercultural identity, and has been fully embraced by the big league, by the mainstream, and by major distributors on leading channels. The real tipping point perhaps emerged when Sky and ITV linked up with Ginx (a leading sports channel) to launch the groundbreaking Ginx E-sports TV – a TV station broadcasting internationally, with eSports being played – often with live commentary and panel discussions included – all day, every day. The BBC has also started dipping their toes into the world of eSports, as have other prime broadcasters such as ESPN and BT Sport.
