eSports Competitivos

Ahead of The International , which was originally set to take place in Stockholm in , the Swedish Sports Confederation voted in June to deny recognition of esports as a sporting event, which jeopardized plans for how Valve had arranged the event in regards to travel visas for international players.

Valve had tried to work with Sweden to accommodate players, but eventually rescheduled the event to Romania instead. The Commonwealth Games featured esports competitions as a pilot ahead of being a potential full medal event for In Greece , in March a law entered into force recognising and regulating esports [] and in June , the relevant federation for esports has been officially given recognition [] and included in the list of sports federations.

The Olympic Games are also seen as a potential method to legitimize esports. A summit held by the International Olympic Committee IOC in October acknowledged the growing popularity of esports, concluding that "Competitive 'esports' could be considered as a sporting activity, and the players involved prepare and train with an intensity which may be comparable to athletes in traditional sports" but would require any games used for the Olympics fitting "with the rules and regulations of the Olympic movement".

If you have egames where it's about killing somebody, this cannot be brought into line with our Olympic values. The issues around esports have not prevented the IOC from exploring what possibilities there are for incorporation into future Olympics.

During July , the IOC and the Global Association of International Sports Federations GAISF held a symposium and inviting major figures in esports, including Epic Games ' Mark Rein , Blizzard Entertainment 's Mike Morhaime , and esports players Dario "TLO" Wünsch, Jacob "Jake" Lyon , and Se-yeon "Geguri" Kim , for these organizations "to gain a deeper understanding of esports, their impact and likely future development, so that [they] can jointly consider the ways in which [they] may collaborate to the mutual benefit of all of sport in the years ahead".

With support of the IOC, Intel sponsored exhibition esports events for StarCraft II and Steep prior to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang , and five South Korean esports players were part of the Olympic Torch relay.

During the Eighth Olympic Summit in December , the IOC reiterated that it would only consider sports-simulating games for any official Olympic event, but it would look at two paths for such games in the future: those that promoted good physical and mental health lifestyles, and virtual reality and augmented reality games that included physical activity.

In the late s, leaders in Japan became involved to help bring esports to the Summer Olympics and beyond, given the country's reputation as a major video game industry center.

Esports in Japan had not flourished due to the country's anti-gambling laws that also prevent paid professional gaming tournaments, but there were efforts starting in late to eliminate this issue. Takeo Kawamura , a member of the Japanese House of Representatives and of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party , led a collation of ruling and opposing politicians to support esports, called the Japan esports Union, or JeSU; [] Kawamura said that they would be willing to pass laws to further exempt esports as needed so that esports athletes can make a living playing these sports.

So far, this has resulted in the ability of esports players to obtain exemption licenses to allow them to play, a similar mechanism needed for professional athletes in other sports in Japan to play professionally.

Each event in auto racing, baseball, cycling, rowing and sailing will be managed by an IOC-recognized governing body for the sport along with a video game publisher of a game for that sport. For example, the auto racing event will be based on the Gran Turismo series and overseen by the International Automobile Federation along with Polyphony Digital.

The baseball, cycling, and esailing events will be based on eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball , Zwift , and Virtual Regatta , respectively.

The organization committee for the Summer Olympics in Paris were in discussions with the IOC and the various professional esports organizations to consider esports for the event, citing the need to include these elements to keep the Olympics relevant to younger generations.

In September , the Olympic Council of Asia announced eight esports games will officially debut as medal sports for the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. In December , the IOC confirmed its Olympic Virtual Series OVS will return in The first edition of the OVS which ran from 13 May to 23 June, featured nearly , participants and had more than two million entries.

In January , the IOC announced the appointment of the organisation's first ever head of virtual sport, tasked with the development of virtual sport for the global Olympic body, increasing the organisation's engagement with gaming communities, and overseeing the Olympic Virtual Series, IOC's first licensed non-physical sports event.

The inaugural series included virtual baseball, cycling, rowing, esailing and motorsports events. In February , the Commonwealth Games Federation announced that esports would be included in the Commonwealth Games as a pilot event, with the possibility of it being a medal event in the Games.

As a follow-up to 's Olympic Virtual Series, the IOC and the Singapore National Olympic Council held the inaugural Olympic Esports Week in Singapore in June A number of games are popular among professional competitors.

The tournaments which emerged in the mids coincided with the popularity of fighting games and first-person shooters , genres which still maintain a devoted fan base.

In the s, real-time strategy games became overwhelmingly popular in South Korean internet cafés , with crucial influence on the development of esports worldwide. Competitions exist for many titles and genres, though the most popular games [ citation needed ] as of the early s are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , Call of Duty , League of Legends , Dota 2 , Fortnite , Rocket League , Valorant , Hearthstone , Super Smash Bros.

Melee , StarCraft II and Overwatch. While it is common for video games to be designed with the experience of the player in game being the only priority, many successful esports games have been designed to be played professionally from the beginning. Developers may decide to add dedicated esports features, or even make design compromises to support high level competition.

Games such as StarCraft II , [] League of Legends , [] and Dota 2 [] have all been designed, at least in part, to support professional competition. In addition to allowing players to participate in a given game, many game developers have added dedicated observing features for the benefit of spectators.

This can range from simply allowing players to watch the game unfold from the competing player's point of view, to a highly modified interface that gives spectators access to information even the players may not have.

The state of the game viewed through this mode may tend to be delayed by a certain amount of time in order to prevent either teams in a game from gaining a competitive advantage. Games with these features include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , Call of Duty , [] StarCraft II , [] [] Dota 2 , [] and Counter-Strike.

In response to the release of virtual reality headsets in , some games, such as Dota 2 , were updated to include virtual reality spectating support. A very common method for connection is the Internet.

Game servers are often separated by region, but high quality connections allow players to set up real-time connections across the world. Downsides to online connections include increased difficulty detecting cheating compared to physical events, and greater network latency , which can negatively impact players' performance, especially at high levels of competition.

Many competitions take place online, especially for smaller tournaments and exhibition games. Since the s, professional teams or organized clans have set up matches via Internet Relay Chat networks such as QuakeNet. As esports have developed, it has also become common for players to use automated matchmaking clients built into the games themselves.

This was popularized by the release of Blizzard's Battle. net , which has been integrated into both the Warcraft and StarCraft series. Automated matchmaking has become commonplace in console gaming as well, with services such as Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

After competitors have contacted each other, the game is often managed by a game server , either remotely to each of the competitors, or running on one of the competitor's machines.

Additionally, competitions are also often conducted over a local area network or LAN. The smaller network usually has very little lag and higher quality. Because competitors must be physically present, LANs help ensure fair play by allowing direct scrutiny of competitors.

This helps prevent many forms of cheating, such as unauthorized hardware or software modding. The physical presence of competitors helps create a more social atmosphere at LAN events.

Many gamers organize LAN parties or visit Internet cafés , and most major tournaments are conducted over LANs. Individual games have taken various approaches to LAN support.

In contrast to the original StarCraft , StarCraft II was released without support for LAN play, drawing some strongly negative reactions from players. Professional gamers are often associated with esports teams or broader gaming and entertainment organizations.

Teams such as FaZe Clan , Cloud9 , Fnatic , T1 , G2 Esports , and Natus Vincere have become successful within esports and now sponsor esports players around the world. They may also represent single players for one-on-one esports games like fighting games within Evolution Championship Series , or Hearthstone tournaments.

In addition to prize money from tournament wins, players in these teams and associations may also be paid a separate team salary. Team sponsorship may cover tournament travel expenses or gaming hardware.

Prominent esports sponsors include companies such as Logitech and Razer. Some traditional sporting athletes have invested in esports, such as Rick Fox 's ownership of Echo Fox , [] Jeremy Lin 's ownership of Team VGJ , [] and Shaquille O'Neal 's investment in NRG Esports.

in Greece either sponsor or have complete ownership in esports teams. Competitive Esports tournaments in the most popular games pay hundreds to thousands of dollars to players for winning tournaments.

One study found that only 1 in 5 professional gamers have careers that last longer than two years. While different from the regimens of traditional sports, esports athletes still have extensive training routines. Team Liquid , a professional League of Legends team, practice for a minimum of 50 hours per week and most play the game far more.

Players are generally in competition by their mid- to late-teens, with most retiring by their lates. In most team-based esports, organized play is centered around the use of promotion and relegation to move sponsored teams between leagues within the competition's organization based on how the team fared in matches; this follows patterns of professional sports in European and Asian countries.

Teams will play a number of games across a season as to vie for top positioning in the league by the end of that season. Those that do well, in addition to prize money, may be promoted into a higher-level league, while those that fare poorly can be regulated downward.

For example, until Riot Games ran several League of Legends series, with the League of Legends Championship Series being the top-tier series. Teams that did not do well were relegated to the League of Legends Challenger Series , replaced by the better performing teams from that series.

This format was discontinued when Riot opted to use the franchise format in mid, but the promotion and relegation format still exists within Southeast Asia's Pacific Championship Series and in North America's new tier 2 league, the North American Challengers Series, as of With rising interest in viewership of esports, some companies sought to create leagues that followed the franchise approach used in North American professional sports , in which all teams, backed by a major financial sponsor to support the franchise, participate in a regular season of matches to vie for top standing as to participate in the post-season games.

This approach is more attractive for larger investors, who would be more willing to back a team that remains playing in the esport's premiere league and not threatened to be relegated to a lower standing.

While there is no team promotion or relegation, players can be signed onto contracts, traded among teams, or let go as free agents, and new players may be pulled from the esports' equivalent minor league. The first such league to be formed was the Overwatch League , established by Blizzard Entertainment in based on its Overwatch game.

Take-Two Interactive partnered with the National Basketball Association NBA to create the NBA 2K League , using the NBA 2K game series. It is the first esports league to be operated by a professional sports league, and the NBA sought to have a League team partially sponsored by each of the 30 professional NBA teams.

Its inaugural season started in May with 17 teams and the league has since expanded to 25 teams, including teams owned by Gen.

G and Australia's National Basketball League. Similar to the NBA 2K League, EA Sports and Major League Soccer MLS established the eMLS in , a league using EA's FIFA Now known as EA Sports FC series.

Activision launched its team Call of Duty League in January , following the format of the Overwatch League but based on the Call of Duty series. Cloud9 and Dignitas, among others, developed a franchise-based Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league, Flashpoint, in February This was the first such esports league to be owned by the teams rather than any single organization.

Esports are also frequently played in tournaments, where potential players and teams vie to be placed through qualification matches before entering the tournament. From there, the tournament formats can vary from single or double elimination , sometimes hybridized with group stage. The tournament may be part of a larger gathering, such as Dreamhack , or the competition may be the entirety of the event, like the World Cyber Games or the Fortnite World Cup.

Esports competitions have also become a popular feature at gaming and multi-genre conventions. Although competitions involving video games have long existed, esports underwent a significant transition in the late s.

Beginning with the Cyberathlete Professional League in , tournaments became much larger, and corporate sponsorship became more common.

Increasing viewership both in person and online brought esports to a wider audience. The average compensation for professional esports players does not compare to those of the top classical sports organizations in the world.

While prizes for esports competitions can be very large, the limited number of competitions and large number of competitors ultimately lowers the amount of money one can make in the industry.

For well established games, total prize money can amount to millions of U. dollars a year. Often, game developers provide prize money for tournament competition directly, [] but sponsorship may also come from third parties, typically companies selling computer hardware , energy drinks , or computer software.

Generally, hosting a large esports event is not profitable as a stand-alone venture. There is considerable variation and negotiation over the relationship between video game developers and tournament organizers and broadcasters.

While the original StarCraft events emerged in South Korea largely independently of Blizzard, the company decided to require organizers and broadcasters to authorize events featuring the sequel StarCraft II. In addition to professional and amateur esports, esports have drawn attention of colleges and high schools since Along with the bursting popularity of esports over the last two decades came a demand for extended opportunities for esports athletes.

Universities across the world mostly China and America began offering scholarship opportunities to incoming freshmen to join their collegiate esports teams. According to Schaeperkoetter and others, the potential impact that an esports program could have on a university, coupled with the growing interest that universities are showing in such a program, combine to make this line of research relevant in sport literature.

As of , over colleges have esports-based variety programs. While game publishers or esports broadcasters typically act in oversight roles for specific esports, a number of esports governing bodies have been established to collectively represent esports on a national, regional or global basis.

These governing bodies may have various levels of involvement with the esport, from being part of esports regulation to simply acting more as a trade group and public face for esports. The International Esports Federation IESF was one of the first such bodies.

Originally formed in to help promote esports in the southeast Asian region, it has grown to include 56 member countries from across the global.

The IESF has managed annual Esports World Championships for teams from its member countries across multiple games. The European Esports Federation was formed in April and includes UK, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, France, Russia, Slovenia, Serbia, Sweden, Turkey, and Ukraine.

This body was designed more to be a managing partner for other esports, working to coordinate event structures and regulations across multiple esports. Additionally, trade groups representing video games have also generally acted as governing bodies for esports.

Notably, in November , five major national trade organizations — the Entertainment Software Association in the United States, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada , The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment , Interactive Software Federation of Europe, and the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association of Australian and New Zealand — issued a joined statement for supporting the promotion and participation of esports to respect player safety and integrity, respect and diversity among players, and enriching game play.

A research led by Ingo Froböse, a professor at the German Sports University in Cologne , for over eight years found professional and also amateur esports gamers play on average 24—25 hours per week and even physical activities after hours of playing are not able to compensate the damage of oversitting.

Players in China may train for almost 14 hours a day. A study conducted in of CS:GO players found that total hours played were about Gamers with poor posture sit in forward head posture which can cause symptoms such as decreased arm or shoulder mobility and tension headaches.

In addition to sedentary behaviors, players' mental health is a concern for scientists. One study found that competitors in esports are often under psychological and physical stress, and the amateur ones are the most affected, since they frequently aim at greater wins without enough preparation, though no clear training guidelines are set to become professional players.

A study found a correlation between depression and training time leading to sleep disturbances. Misfits has hired a psychologist to ensure players are equipped with methods to deal with stress and anxiety.

Esports athletes are usually obligated to behave ethically, abiding by both the explicit rules set out by tournaments, associations, and teams, as well as following general expectations of good sportsmanship.

For example, it is common practice and considered good etiquette to send a message saying "gg" for "good game" to your opponent s when defeated. In a prominent example of good conduct, during a IEM StarCraft II game, the players Feast and DeMusliM both voluntarily offered information about their strategies to negate the influence of outside information inadvertently leaked to "Feast" during the game.

In professional League of Legends player Christian "IWillDominate" Riviera was banned from competing for a period of one year following a history of verbal abuse.

Team Siren, an all-female League of Legends team, was formed in June The announcement of the team was met with controversy, being dismissed as a "gimmick" to attract the attention of men.

The team was met with similar criticism. There have been serious violations of the rules in certain esports. In , eleven StarCraft: Brood War players were found guilty of fixing matches for profit , and were fined and banned from future competition.

Team Curse and Team Dignitas were denied prize money for collusion during the MLG Summer Championship. Reports of widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs PEDs in esports are not uncommon, with players discussing their own, their teammates' and their competitors' use as well as officials acknowledging the prevalence of the issue.

Conversely, drugs with calming effects are also sought after. Some players take propranolol , which blocks the effects of adrenaline , or Valium , which is prescribed to treat anxiety disorder , in order to remain calm under pressure. pro in the ESL One Katowice Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, and went on to claim that "everyone" at ESEA League tournaments uses Adderall.

The unregulated use of such drugs poses severe risks to competitors' health, including addiction , overdose , serotonin syndrome and, in the case of stimulants, weight loss. Although International e-Sports Federation IeSF is a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Agency , the governing body has not outlawed any PEDs in its sanctioned competitions.

These energy drinks are often marketed specifically toward gamers, and have also faced media and regulatory scrutiny due to their health risks. There has been some concern over the quality of life and potential mistreatment of players by organizations, especially in South Korea.

Korean organizations have been accused of refusing to pay competitive salaries, leading to a slow exodus of Korean players to other markets. In an interview, League of Legends player Bae "Dade" Eo-jin said that "Korean players wake up at 1 pm and play until 5 am", and suggested that the hour play schedule was a significant factor in causing burnout.

To combat the negative environment, Korean League of Legends teams were given new rules for the upcoming season by Riot Games, including the adoption of minimum salaries for professional players, requiring contracts and allowing players to stream individually for additional player revenue.

Since esports games often requires many actions per minute, some players may get repetitive strain injuries, causing hand or wrist pain. The League of Legends Championship Series and League of Legends Champions Korea offer guaranteed salaries for players.

During the COVID pandemic , the video gaming industry bypassed many economic sectors by providing a means of compensating for the physical isolation imposed by the lockdown, transforming it into an increasingly important economic sector within the global economy.

Current all-female esports teams include Frag Dolls and PMS Clan. Gambling on esports matches have historically been illegal or unregulated by major markets.

This created a black market via virtual currency. In places where esports gambling is not officially recognized, the lack of regulation has resulted in match-fixing by players or third parties, and created issues with underage gambling due to the draw of video games.

Some games allow bets in their in-game currency , [] while third-party gambling platforms will often take bets placed using virtual items earned in games. Most gambling sites offering the booker service allow users to bet based on the outcome of tournaments, matches or special esports titles.

On the other hand, due to the nature of esports, there are numerous innovative ways to make bets, which are based on in-game milestones.

Esports gambling in the United States has been illegal under the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of PASPA. The Act prevented all but five states from allowing gambling on sporting events.

Some betting houses in Nevada, where sports betting has been already exempted under PASPA, classify esports as non-competitive "other events" similar to the selection of the Heisman Trophy winner or NFL Draft which are considered as legal. Nevada legalized esports gambling in June , classifying esports along with competitive sports and dog racing.

National Collegiate Athletic Association in May , PASPA was recognized as unconstitutional, as the Court claimed that the federal government cannot limit states from regulating sports betting. This created the potential for legalized esports-based betting in the United States. In , the countries where esports gambling is legal include the UK, New Zealand, Australia, China, Spain, Canada, South Korea, and Japan, and many of them are the international hosts for gaming tournaments.

The esports gambling industry has attracted criticism because of its target audience. As a large part of the esports audience is underage, governments and regulators have expressed skepticism regarding the market and the possibility of underage gambling. Additionally, gambling platforms have received criticism for their integration with the larger esports industry.

LGD team Dota 2 in August With the growing popularity of machine learning in data analytics, [ citation needed ] esports has been the focus of several software programs that analyze the plethora of game data available. Based on the huge number of matches played on a daily basis globally League of Legends alone had a reported million active monthly players worldwide in [] and an average of 27 million League of Legends games played per day reported in [] , these games can be used for applying big-data machine learning platforms.

Several games make their data publicly available, so websites aggregate the data into easy-to-visualize graphs and statistics. In addition, several programs use machine learning tools to predict the win probability of a match based on various factors, such as team composition.

As more esports competitions and leagues are run entirely or in portion by the video game publisher or developer for the game, the ongoing viability of that game's esports activities is tied to that company.

In December , Blizzard announced that it was reducing resources spent on the development of Heroes of the Storm and canceling its plans for tournaments in This caused several professional Heroes players and coaches to recognize that their career was no longer viable, and expressed outrage and disappointment at Blizzard's decision.

The main medium for esports coverage is the Internet. In the mids, mainstream sports and news reporting websites, such as ESPN , Yahoo! For popular casters, providing commentary for esports can be a full-time position by itself. However, the impact of COVID pandemic affected how esports were covered in addition to the sports themselves.

Notably, ESPN 's dedicated esports coverage was shuttered in November as the network refocus on more traditional sports, though said they would still have some coverage of esports events.

In , the Associated Press ' AP Stylebook officially began spelling the word as "esports", dropping support for both the capital "S" and the dash between "e" and "sports" styles, similar to how " e-mail " transformed with common usage to "email".

Many esports events are streamed online to viewers over the internet. With the shutdown of the Own3d streaming service in , Twitch is by far the most popular streaming service for esports, competing against other providers such as Hitbox.

tv, Azubu, and YouTube Gaming. Individual broadcasters can enter an agreement with Twitch or Hitbox in which they receive a portion of the advertisement revenue from commercials which run on the stream they create.

Another major streaming platform was Major League Gaming 's MLG. tv viewership in Q1 of For several years, MLG. tv was the primary streaming platform for the Call of Duty professional scene; famous players such as NaDeSHoT and Scump have signed contracts with the company to use its streaming service exclusively.

YouTube also relaunched its livestreaming platform with a renewed focus on live gaming and esports specifically. Especially since the popularization of streaming in esports, organizations no longer prioritize television coverage, preferring online streaming websites such as Twitch.

Ongamenet continues to broadcast as an esports channel in South Korea, but MBCGame was taken off the air in Riot Games' Dustin Beck stated that "TV's not a priority or a goal", [] and DreamHack's Tomas Hermansson said "esports have [been proven] to be successful on internet streaming [services].

On the night before the finals of The International in August, ESPN3 broadcast a half-hour special profiling the tournament. The first-place team from the University of California, Berkeley received tuition for each of the team's players, paid for by Blizzard and Tespa.

This was the first time an esport had ever been broadcast on a major American television network. The broadcast was an attempt to broaden the appeal of esports by reaching viewers who would not normally come across it.

However, the broadcast was met with a few complaints. Those living outside of the United States were unable to view the tournament. Additionally, the tournament could not be viewed online via streams, cutting off a large portion of viewers from the main demographic in the process.

The tournament, filmed at Turner's studios in Atlanta, Georgia , is simultaneously streamed on online streaming websites and TBS on Friday nights. In January , Activision Blizzard , publishers of the Call of Duty and StarCraft series, acquired Major League Gaming.

In an interview with The New York Times about the purchase, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick explained that the company was aspiring to create a U. cable network devoted to esports, which he described as "the ESPN of video games". He felt that higher quality productions, more in line with those of traditional sports telecasts, could help to broaden the appeal of esports to advertisers.

Activision Blizzard had hired former ESPN and NFL Network executive Steve Bornstein to be CEO of the company's esports division. TV 2 , the largest private television broadcaster in Norway , broadcasts esports across the country.

TV 2 partnered with local Norwegian organization House of Nerds to bring a full season of esports competition with an initial lineup of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , League of Legends , and StarCraft II.

In April , Big Ten Network announced a collaboration with Riot to hold an invitational League of Legends competition between two universities from the collegiate Big Ten Conference , as part of Riot's collegiate championships at PAX East.

Nielsen Holdings , a global information company known for tracking viewership for television and other media, announced in August that it would launch Nielsen esports, a division devoted to providing similar viewership and other consumer research data around esports, forming an advisory board with members from ESL , Activision Blizzard , Twitch , YouTube , ESPN , and FIFA to help determine how to track and monitor audience sizes for esports events.

In July , on the first day of the inaugural Overwatch League season playoffs, Blizzard and Disney announced a multi-year deal that gave Disney and its networks ESPN and ABC broadcast rights to the Overwatch League and Overwatch World Cup , starting with the playoffs and continuing with future events.

Rainbow Six Siege world championship in São Paulo to feature unprecedented action with exclusive animation and theme song celebrating player community unity 09 de febrero de mar 01 abr 01 may 01 jun 01 jul 01 ago 01 sept 01 oct 01 nov 01 When Major League Gaming first launched in the early s, its tournaments drew dozens of fans.

Earlier this year, the Intel Extreme Masters tournament, held in Katowice, Poland, drew , fans to the stadium over two weekends. Perhaps unsurprisingly, prize money for the largest tournaments can be enormous. This means that they have rights around where the game is played, who can host video game tournaments, and more.

At the end of the day, publishers own the intellectual property of each game, and other industry participants players, teams, tournament organizers are keenly aware of this reality. However, in June of this year, Riot Games announced franchising and revenue sharing possibilities, which would allow for select players and teams to participate in the upside.

Esports to reach million viewers in According to Newzoo , an esports market research organization, in , the audience of esports will reach a total of roughly million people globally. In fact, North America and Europe have taken a prominent place in the global esports and gaming ecosystem Chart 4.

Fans are deeply engaged: Fans are already averaging minutes per session spectating. Interestingly, only about half of viewers actually play the video game they are watching. In North America, the most popular sport in the region, football, is only 2x as popular as esports among male millennials.

For male viewers between the ages of 36 and 50, football is only 3x as popular. This purchasing power and ability to engage on technology platforms makes the esports audience particularly desirable to target for big brands, which we will discuss later on.

With esports now included in the Asian Games, gaming companies can now start to develop similar revenue streams as media companies, including advertising, ticket sales, shares of TV rights and more.

The figure does not include betting or fantasy esports numbers. Advertising comprises the revenue generated from the advertisements targeting esports viewers, including ads shown during livestreams on online platforms, on video-on-demand content of esports matches, or on esports TV.

If the esports viewership and influence continues to expand, exposure to this fan base will get more expensive. On top of that, local teams, leagues, and events are starting to tap into new marketing budgets to reach this audience.

Currently, game publisher fees represent a large portion of the industry. Much of this capital has been an investment in marketing by game creators in order to extend the shelf life and relevancy of their games.

According to Newzoo, game publisher fees will experience the slowest growth in the upcoming years. Merchandise and ticket revenue is money generated from the sale of merchandise and live tournaments. Media rights revenue is the revenue paid to industry stakeholders to secure the rights to show esports content on a channel.

This includes payments from online streaming platforms to organizers for broadcasting their content. This also includes foreign broadcasters securing rights to show content in their country and paying for copyright to show video content or photos of esports competitions.

Exclusive content deals, as seen in traditional sports, will drive this growth. Similar to how the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL follow a franchise model with limited membership in their respective sports, esports in North America seems to be following a similar path.

A recent announcement from Riot on their League of Legends title has established a franchise model for the North American league. As franchising becomes the dominant model, elite teams and organizations will become revenue-generating machines. However, those without franchise spots will be forced to find revenue in secondary leagues or look to establish themselves in titles that have yet to be franchised.

While this consolidation will certainly be painful initially, I view this as a much-needed step forward for the industry as it continues to grow and prune the market.

The below chart includes franchising details for the Riot and Overwatch leagues. In esports, broadcasting and media rights will be a key growth driver as the worlds of media and gaming continue to converge. This includes restrictions around which software licensees members of the public, teams, league organizers can play the game, permit others to play, and allow others to watch the game.

Up until recently, publishers have been fairly relaxed about their restrictions. However, the industry is now reaching a turning point where the adoption of games and of esports has exploded. Consequently, publishers are looking to capitalize on this audience and momentum by monetizing broadcasting and signing exclusive content deals.

And, since players and organizations draw in these fans, they are seeking revenue share agreements with publishers. These new developments are catalysts for the emerging franchise models explained above, whereby teams, players, and publishers yield similar revenue splits.

Looking ahead, publishers will selectively grant broadcasting rights to specific partners and media outlets. One key thing to watch is whether heightened control over streaming and viewing rights will cause fan and player pushback , since publishers have historically encouraged users to share and stream content at their own discretion.

It is true that virtual reality headsets are already being developed specifically for esports audiences. Some games such as Alien Isolation , in fact, already offer VR support, and other games such as EVE Valkyrie have been built specifically with VR in mind.

Still, Alien Isolation and EVE Valkyrie have weak user bases, and VR technology possesses prohibitively high costs and is largely underdeveloped. For example, existing VR technology features often lack adequate interactive components. It will be interesting to see how the virtual reality and esports industries converge going forward, but widespread adoption is unlikely in the short term.

Although now is a great time to invest in esports, many investors understandably find it challenging to navigate its complexity. Still, this complexity translates to a vast, broad range of investment opportunities.

Exciting times undoubtedly lie ahead as these various verticals continue to develop monetization strategies for the massive audience base. One way to gain exposure to the esports sector is through public markets. Below is a list of publicly traded companies that have various connections to and investments in esports.

For example, Tencent owns Riot Games, creator of the most-played game League of Legends, while Activision Blizzard develops the popular games World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Hearthstone.

oct 01 nov 01 dic 01 ene 01 feb 01 BLAST R6 Brazil. BLAST R6 Europe. BLAST R6 Japan. BLAST R6 LATAM. BLAST R6 North America. In the s, real-time strategy games became overwhelmingly popular in South Korean internet cafés , with crucial influence on the development of esports worldwide.

Competitions exist for many titles and genres, though the most popular games [ citation needed ] as of the early s are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , Call of Duty , League of Legends , Dota 2 , Fortnite , Rocket League , Valorant , Hearthstone , Super Smash Bros.

Melee , StarCraft II and Overwatch. While it is common for video games to be designed with the experience of the player in game being the only priority, many successful esports games have been designed to be played professionally from the beginning.

Developers may decide to add dedicated esports features, or even make design compromises to support high level competition. Games such as StarCraft II , [] League of Legends , [] and Dota 2 [] have all been designed, at least in part, to support professional competition.

In addition to allowing players to participate in a given game, many game developers have added dedicated observing features for the benefit of spectators. This can range from simply allowing players to watch the game unfold from the competing player's point of view, to a highly modified interface that gives spectators access to information even the players may not have.

The state of the game viewed through this mode may tend to be delayed by a certain amount of time in order to prevent either teams in a game from gaining a competitive advantage. Games with these features include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , Call of Duty , [] StarCraft II , [] [] Dota 2 , [] and Counter-Strike.

In response to the release of virtual reality headsets in , some games, such as Dota 2 , were updated to include virtual reality spectating support. A very common method for connection is the Internet.

Game servers are often separated by region, but high quality connections allow players to set up real-time connections across the world. Downsides to online connections include increased difficulty detecting cheating compared to physical events, and greater network latency , which can negatively impact players' performance, especially at high levels of competition.

Many competitions take place online, especially for smaller tournaments and exhibition games. Since the s, professional teams or organized clans have set up matches via Internet Relay Chat networks such as QuakeNet.

As esports have developed, it has also become common for players to use automated matchmaking clients built into the games themselves.

This was popularized by the release of Blizzard's Battle. net , which has been integrated into both the Warcraft and StarCraft series. Automated matchmaking has become commonplace in console gaming as well, with services such as Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

After competitors have contacted each other, the game is often managed by a game server , either remotely to each of the competitors, or running on one of the competitor's machines.

Additionally, competitions are also often conducted over a local area network or LAN. The smaller network usually has very little lag and higher quality. Because competitors must be physically present, LANs help ensure fair play by allowing direct scrutiny of competitors.

This helps prevent many forms of cheating, such as unauthorized hardware or software modding. The physical presence of competitors helps create a more social atmosphere at LAN events.

Many gamers organize LAN parties or visit Internet cafés , and most major tournaments are conducted over LANs. Individual games have taken various approaches to LAN support.

In contrast to the original StarCraft , StarCraft II was released without support for LAN play, drawing some strongly negative reactions from players. Professional gamers are often associated with esports teams or broader gaming and entertainment organizations.

Teams such as FaZe Clan , Cloud9 , Fnatic , T1 , G2 Esports , and Natus Vincere have become successful within esports and now sponsor esports players around the world.

They may also represent single players for one-on-one esports games like fighting games within Evolution Championship Series , or Hearthstone tournaments.

In addition to prize money from tournament wins, players in these teams and associations may also be paid a separate team salary. Team sponsorship may cover tournament travel expenses or gaming hardware. Prominent esports sponsors include companies such as Logitech and Razer.

Some traditional sporting athletes have invested in esports, such as Rick Fox 's ownership of Echo Fox , [] Jeremy Lin 's ownership of Team VGJ , [] and Shaquille O'Neal 's investment in NRG Esports.

in Greece either sponsor or have complete ownership in esports teams. Competitive Esports tournaments in the most popular games pay hundreds to thousands of dollars to players for winning tournaments.

One study found that only 1 in 5 professional gamers have careers that last longer than two years. While different from the regimens of traditional sports, esports athletes still have extensive training routines. Team Liquid , a professional League of Legends team, practice for a minimum of 50 hours per week and most play the game far more.

Players are generally in competition by their mid- to late-teens, with most retiring by their lates. In most team-based esports, organized play is centered around the use of promotion and relegation to move sponsored teams between leagues within the competition's organization based on how the team fared in matches; this follows patterns of professional sports in European and Asian countries.

Teams will play a number of games across a season as to vie for top positioning in the league by the end of that season. Those that do well, in addition to prize money, may be promoted into a higher-level league, while those that fare poorly can be regulated downward. For example, until Riot Games ran several League of Legends series, with the League of Legends Championship Series being the top-tier series.

Teams that did not do well were relegated to the League of Legends Challenger Series , replaced by the better performing teams from that series. This format was discontinued when Riot opted to use the franchise format in mid, but the promotion and relegation format still exists within Southeast Asia's Pacific Championship Series and in North America's new tier 2 league, the North American Challengers Series, as of With rising interest in viewership of esports, some companies sought to create leagues that followed the franchise approach used in North American professional sports , in which all teams, backed by a major financial sponsor to support the franchise, participate in a regular season of matches to vie for top standing as to participate in the post-season games.

This approach is more attractive for larger investors, who would be more willing to back a team that remains playing in the esport's premiere league and not threatened to be relegated to a lower standing. While there is no team promotion or relegation, players can be signed onto contracts, traded among teams, or let go as free agents, and new players may be pulled from the esports' equivalent minor league.

The first such league to be formed was the Overwatch League , established by Blizzard Entertainment in based on its Overwatch game. Take-Two Interactive partnered with the National Basketball Association NBA to create the NBA 2K League , using the NBA 2K game series.

It is the first esports league to be operated by a professional sports league, and the NBA sought to have a League team partially sponsored by each of the 30 professional NBA teams.

Its inaugural season started in May with 17 teams and the league has since expanded to 25 teams, including teams owned by Gen. G and Australia's National Basketball League. Similar to the NBA 2K League, EA Sports and Major League Soccer MLS established the eMLS in , a league using EA's FIFA Now known as EA Sports FC series.

Activision launched its team Call of Duty League in January , following the format of the Overwatch League but based on the Call of Duty series.

Cloud9 and Dignitas, among others, developed a franchise-based Counter-Strike: Global Offensive league, Flashpoint, in February This was the first such esports league to be owned by the teams rather than any single organization. Esports are also frequently played in tournaments, where potential players and teams vie to be placed through qualification matches before entering the tournament.

From there, the tournament formats can vary from single or double elimination , sometimes hybridized with group stage. The tournament may be part of a larger gathering, such as Dreamhack , or the competition may be the entirety of the event, like the World Cyber Games or the Fortnite World Cup.

Esports competitions have also become a popular feature at gaming and multi-genre conventions. Although competitions involving video games have long existed, esports underwent a significant transition in the late s.

Beginning with the Cyberathlete Professional League in , tournaments became much larger, and corporate sponsorship became more common. Increasing viewership both in person and online brought esports to a wider audience. The average compensation for professional esports players does not compare to those of the top classical sports organizations in the world.

While prizes for esports competitions can be very large, the limited number of competitions and large number of competitors ultimately lowers the amount of money one can make in the industry.

For well established games, total prize money can amount to millions of U. dollars a year. Often, game developers provide prize money for tournament competition directly, [] but sponsorship may also come from third parties, typically companies selling computer hardware , energy drinks , or computer software.

Generally, hosting a large esports event is not profitable as a stand-alone venture. There is considerable variation and negotiation over the relationship between video game developers and tournament organizers and broadcasters.

While the original StarCraft events emerged in South Korea largely independently of Blizzard, the company decided to require organizers and broadcasters to authorize events featuring the sequel StarCraft II.

In addition to professional and amateur esports, esports have drawn attention of colleges and high schools since Along with the bursting popularity of esports over the last two decades came a demand for extended opportunities for esports athletes.

Universities across the world mostly China and America began offering scholarship opportunities to incoming freshmen to join their collegiate esports teams. According to Schaeperkoetter and others, the potential impact that an esports program could have on a university, coupled with the growing interest that universities are showing in such a program, combine to make this line of research relevant in sport literature.

As of , over colleges have esports-based variety programs. While game publishers or esports broadcasters typically act in oversight roles for specific esports, a number of esports governing bodies have been established to collectively represent esports on a national, regional or global basis.

These governing bodies may have various levels of involvement with the esport, from being part of esports regulation to simply acting more as a trade group and public face for esports.

The International Esports Federation IESF was one of the first such bodies. Originally formed in to help promote esports in the southeast Asian region, it has grown to include 56 member countries from across the global.

The IESF has managed annual Esports World Championships for teams from its member countries across multiple games. The European Esports Federation was formed in April and includes UK, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, France, Russia, Slovenia, Serbia, Sweden, Turkey, and Ukraine.

This body was designed more to be a managing partner for other esports, working to coordinate event structures and regulations across multiple esports. Additionally, trade groups representing video games have also generally acted as governing bodies for esports.

Notably, in November , five major national trade organizations — the Entertainment Software Association in the United States, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada , The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment , Interactive Software Federation of Europe, and the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association of Australian and New Zealand — issued a joined statement for supporting the promotion and participation of esports to respect player safety and integrity, respect and diversity among players, and enriching game play.

A research led by Ingo Froböse, a professor at the German Sports University in Cologne , for over eight years found professional and also amateur esports gamers play on average 24—25 hours per week and even physical activities after hours of playing are not able to compensate the damage of oversitting.

Players in China may train for almost 14 hours a day. A study conducted in of CS:GO players found that total hours played were about Gamers with poor posture sit in forward head posture which can cause symptoms such as decreased arm or shoulder mobility and tension headaches.

In addition to sedentary behaviors, players' mental health is a concern for scientists. One study found that competitors in esports are often under psychological and physical stress, and the amateur ones are the most affected, since they frequently aim at greater wins without enough preparation, though no clear training guidelines are set to become professional players.

A study found a correlation between depression and training time leading to sleep disturbances. Misfits has hired a psychologist to ensure players are equipped with methods to deal with stress and anxiety. Esports athletes are usually obligated to behave ethically, abiding by both the explicit rules set out by tournaments, associations, and teams, as well as following general expectations of good sportsmanship.

For example, it is common practice and considered good etiquette to send a message saying "gg" for "good game" to your opponent s when defeated.

In a prominent example of good conduct, during a IEM StarCraft II game, the players Feast and DeMusliM both voluntarily offered information about their strategies to negate the influence of outside information inadvertently leaked to "Feast" during the game.

In professional League of Legends player Christian "IWillDominate" Riviera was banned from competing for a period of one year following a history of verbal abuse. Team Siren, an all-female League of Legends team, was formed in June The announcement of the team was met with controversy, being dismissed as a "gimmick" to attract the attention of men.

The team was met with similar criticism. There have been serious violations of the rules in certain esports. In , eleven StarCraft: Brood War players were found guilty of fixing matches for profit , and were fined and banned from future competition.

Team Curse and Team Dignitas were denied prize money for collusion during the MLG Summer Championship. Reports of widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs PEDs in esports are not uncommon, with players discussing their own, their teammates' and their competitors' use as well as officials acknowledging the prevalence of the issue.

Conversely, drugs with calming effects are also sought after. Some players take propranolol , which blocks the effects of adrenaline , or Valium , which is prescribed to treat anxiety disorder , in order to remain calm under pressure. pro in the ESL One Katowice Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, and went on to claim that "everyone" at ESEA League tournaments uses Adderall.

The unregulated use of such drugs poses severe risks to competitors' health, including addiction , overdose , serotonin syndrome and, in the case of stimulants, weight loss.

Although International e-Sports Federation IeSF is a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Agency , the governing body has not outlawed any PEDs in its sanctioned competitions.

These energy drinks are often marketed specifically toward gamers, and have also faced media and regulatory scrutiny due to their health risks. There has been some concern over the quality of life and potential mistreatment of players by organizations, especially in South Korea.

Korean organizations have been accused of refusing to pay competitive salaries, leading to a slow exodus of Korean players to other markets. In an interview, League of Legends player Bae "Dade" Eo-jin said that "Korean players wake up at 1 pm and play until 5 am", and suggested that the hour play schedule was a significant factor in causing burnout.

To combat the negative environment, Korean League of Legends teams were given new rules for the upcoming season by Riot Games, including the adoption of minimum salaries for professional players, requiring contracts and allowing players to stream individually for additional player revenue.

Since esports games often requires many actions per minute, some players may get repetitive strain injuries, causing hand or wrist pain.

The League of Legends Championship Series and League of Legends Champions Korea offer guaranteed salaries for players. During the COVID pandemic , the video gaming industry bypassed many economic sectors by providing a means of compensating for the physical isolation imposed by the lockdown, transforming it into an increasingly important economic sector within the global economy.

Current all-female esports teams include Frag Dolls and PMS Clan. Gambling on esports matches have historically been illegal or unregulated by major markets.

This created a black market via virtual currency. In places where esports gambling is not officially recognized, the lack of regulation has resulted in match-fixing by players or third parties, and created issues with underage gambling due to the draw of video games.

Some games allow bets in their in-game currency , [] while third-party gambling platforms will often take bets placed using virtual items earned in games. Most gambling sites offering the booker service allow users to bet based on the outcome of tournaments, matches or special esports titles.

On the other hand, due to the nature of esports, there are numerous innovative ways to make bets, which are based on in-game milestones. Esports gambling in the United States has been illegal under the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of PASPA.

The Act prevented all but five states from allowing gambling on sporting events. Some betting houses in Nevada, where sports betting has been already exempted under PASPA, classify esports as non-competitive "other events" similar to the selection of the Heisman Trophy winner or NFL Draft which are considered as legal.

Nevada legalized esports gambling in June , classifying esports along with competitive sports and dog racing. National Collegiate Athletic Association in May , PASPA was recognized as unconstitutional, as the Court claimed that the federal government cannot limit states from regulating sports betting.

This created the potential for legalized esports-based betting in the United States. In , the countries where esports gambling is legal include the UK, New Zealand, Australia, China, Spain, Canada, South Korea, and Japan, and many of them are the international hosts for gaming tournaments.

The esports gambling industry has attracted criticism because of its target audience. As a large part of the esports audience is underage, governments and regulators have expressed skepticism regarding the market and the possibility of underage gambling.

Additionally, gambling platforms have received criticism for their integration with the larger esports industry. LGD team Dota 2 in August With the growing popularity of machine learning in data analytics, [ citation needed ] esports has been the focus of several software programs that analyze the plethora of game data available.

Based on the huge number of matches played on a daily basis globally League of Legends alone had a reported million active monthly players worldwide in [] and an average of 27 million League of Legends games played per day reported in [] , these games can be used for applying big-data machine learning platforms.

Several games make their data publicly available, so websites aggregate the data into easy-to-visualize graphs and statistics. In addition, several programs use machine learning tools to predict the win probability of a match based on various factors, such as team composition. As more esports competitions and leagues are run entirely or in portion by the video game publisher or developer for the game, the ongoing viability of that game's esports activities is tied to that company.

In December , Blizzard announced that it was reducing resources spent on the development of Heroes of the Storm and canceling its plans for tournaments in This caused several professional Heroes players and coaches to recognize that their career was no longer viable, and expressed outrage and disappointment at Blizzard's decision.

The main medium for esports coverage is the Internet. In the mids, mainstream sports and news reporting websites, such as ESPN , Yahoo! For popular casters, providing commentary for esports can be a full-time position by itself. However, the impact of COVID pandemic affected how esports were covered in addition to the sports themselves.

Notably, ESPN 's dedicated esports coverage was shuttered in November as the network refocus on more traditional sports, though said they would still have some coverage of esports events. In , the Associated Press ' AP Stylebook officially began spelling the word as "esports", dropping support for both the capital "S" and the dash between "e" and "sports" styles, similar to how " e-mail " transformed with common usage to "email".

Many esports events are streamed online to viewers over the internet. With the shutdown of the Own3d streaming service in , Twitch is by far the most popular streaming service for esports, competing against other providers such as Hitbox. tv, Azubu, and YouTube Gaming. Individual broadcasters can enter an agreement with Twitch or Hitbox in which they receive a portion of the advertisement revenue from commercials which run on the stream they create.

Another major streaming platform was Major League Gaming 's MLG. tv viewership in Q1 of For several years, MLG. tv was the primary streaming platform for the Call of Duty professional scene; famous players such as NaDeSHoT and Scump have signed contracts with the company to use its streaming service exclusively.

YouTube also relaunched its livestreaming platform with a renewed focus on live gaming and esports specifically.

Especially since the popularization of streaming in esports, organizations no longer prioritize television coverage, preferring online streaming websites such as Twitch. Ongamenet continues to broadcast as an esports channel in South Korea, but MBCGame was taken off the air in Riot Games' Dustin Beck stated that "TV's not a priority or a goal", [] and DreamHack's Tomas Hermansson said "esports have [been proven] to be successful on internet streaming [services].

On the night before the finals of The International in August, ESPN3 broadcast a half-hour special profiling the tournament. The first-place team from the University of California, Berkeley received tuition for each of the team's players, paid for by Blizzard and Tespa.

This was the first time an esport had ever been broadcast on a major American television network. The broadcast was an attempt to broaden the appeal of esports by reaching viewers who would not normally come across it.

However, the broadcast was met with a few complaints. Those living outside of the United States were unable to view the tournament. Additionally, the tournament could not be viewed online via streams, cutting off a large portion of viewers from the main demographic in the process. The tournament, filmed at Turner's studios in Atlanta, Georgia , is simultaneously streamed on online streaming websites and TBS on Friday nights.

In January , Activision Blizzard , publishers of the Call of Duty and StarCraft series, acquired Major League Gaming. In an interview with The New York Times about the purchase, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick explained that the company was aspiring to create a U.

cable network devoted to esports, which he described as "the ESPN of video games". He felt that higher quality productions, more in line with those of traditional sports telecasts, could help to broaden the appeal of esports to advertisers.

Activision Blizzard had hired former ESPN and NFL Network executive Steve Bornstein to be CEO of the company's esports division. TV 2 , the largest private television broadcaster in Norway , broadcasts esports across the country. TV 2 partnered with local Norwegian organization House of Nerds to bring a full season of esports competition with an initial lineup of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive , League of Legends , and StarCraft II.

In April , Big Ten Network announced a collaboration with Riot to hold an invitational League of Legends competition between two universities from the collegiate Big Ten Conference , as part of Riot's collegiate championships at PAX East.

Nielsen Holdings , a global information company known for tracking viewership for television and other media, announced in August that it would launch Nielsen esports, a division devoted to providing similar viewership and other consumer research data around esports, forming an advisory board with members from ESL , Activision Blizzard , Twitch , YouTube , ESPN , and FIFA to help determine how to track and monitor audience sizes for esports events.

In July , on the first day of the inaugural Overwatch League season playoffs, Blizzard and Disney announced a multi-year deal that gave Disney and its networks ESPN and ABC broadcast rights to the Overwatch League and Overwatch World Cup , starting with the playoffs and continuing with future events.

Internet Research. doi : S2CID SSRN Retrieved 15 August The Verge. Retrieved 9 October PC World. Retrieved 7 October Bloomberg Businessweek. Retrieved 19 January I will provide not only third-party data and analysis, but also my personal experience and insight after listening to people, learning about the industry, and launching an esports company myself Konvoy.

The experience is similar to watching a professional sporting event, except that instead of watching a physical event, spectators watch video gamers compete against each other in a virtual environment. Just as traditional sports fans enjoy watching top athletes perform at the top of their craft, the same is true of those who watch top video gamers compete.

This industry includes not only traditional sports-related games like NBA2K and FIFA , but also—and more notably—games such as League of Legends , Counter-Strike , and Dota.

The players can engage with their fans in a variety of ways including social media, live-streaming platforms, and in-person at tournaments.

On the other side, fans can watch and follow their favorite teams compete in regional and global tournaments. Many technology platforms, services, events, analytics platforms, and substantial investor capital surrounds this ecosystem as it continues to grow.

They can both excel at the highest levels of League of Legends, CS:GO, Dota 2, or any other game. Esports can further level the playing field for factors such as gender , culture, and location. In esports, however, new games with infinitely scalable dynamics, variances, and players can be created.

In fact, a new installment of, or update to, an established game franchise can hold massive implications. When updates are released to established games, it causes a massive learning curve as game dynamics and strategies can dramatically evolve.

Though the actual rankings of the most popular esports games change slightly month-to-month, the ten most watched games on dominant streaming site Twitch remain consistent Table 1. As of right now, League of Legends remains the most-watched eSport in the world. The esports landscape is admittedly complex and at times difficult to navigate.

The following section outlines the major parties involved in the industry. Becoming a top esports player is no simple achievement. To rise through the ranks, players specialize in a specific game, developing their skills through extensive, competitive play.

Some even train up to 14 hours a day to hone quick reflexes and multi-tasking abilities. Talented players primarily have two options in pursuing their esports careers:. Professional players join teams in multi-player games or play solo in 1v1 games to compete for cash prizes. Each team specializes and competes in one specific game, such as League of Legends, Dota, or Counter-Strike.

The teams that compete at these tournaments have millions of followers on Twitter, millions watching online, and tens of thousands of spectators following them to in-person tournaments. A few examples include Evil Geniuses , Fnatic , and Optic Gaming. The best esports teams are recruited to be a part of organizations, have several teams that specialize in their respective video games but operate under the same name e.

A few of the games are 1v1 while others are team based and involve two squads competing against each other. Leveraging a larger fan base following as the organization recruits more high profile players and teams, organizations will seek out sponsorships with brands to access additional revenue streams outside of cash prizes.

These are determined by the following and successes of the underlying players and teams of that specific organization. Just as basketball teams are part of the NBA and compete against each other, esports teams typically under an organization umbrella compete in video game leagues. League tournaments are run by companies such as Major League Gaming MLG or the Electronic Sports League ESL.

Leagues include North America League of Legends Championships Series , the Call of Duty World League organized by MLG , or the Pro League for CS:GO organized by ESL. When Major League Gaming first launched in the early s, its tournaments drew dozens of fans. Earlier this year, the Intel Extreme Masters tournament, held in Katowice, Poland, drew , fans to the stadium over two weekends.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, prize money for the largest tournaments can be enormous. This means that they have rights around where the game is played, who can host video game tournaments, and more.

At the end of the day, publishers own the intellectual property of each game, and other industry participants players, teams, tournament organizers are keenly aware of this reality. However, in June of this year, Riot Games announced franchising and revenue sharing possibilities, which would allow for select players and teams to participate in the upside.

Esports to reach million viewers in According to Newzoo , an esports market research organization, in , the audience of esports will reach a total of roughly million people globally.

In fact, North America and Europe have taken a prominent place in the global esports and gaming ecosystem Chart 4. Fans are deeply engaged: Fans are already averaging minutes per session spectating.

Interestingly, only about half of viewers actually play the video game they are watching. In North America, the most popular sport in the region, football, is only 2x as popular as esports among male millennials. For male viewers between the ages of 36 and 50, football is only 3x as popular.

This purchasing power and ability to engage on technology platforms makes the esports audience particularly desirable to target for big brands, which we will discuss later on. With esports now included in the Asian Games, gaming companies can now start to develop similar revenue streams as media companies, including advertising, ticket sales, shares of TV rights and more.

The figure does not include betting or fantasy esports numbers. Advertising comprises the revenue generated from the advertisements targeting esports viewers, including ads shown during livestreams on online platforms, on video-on-demand content of esports matches, or on esports TV.

If the esports viewership and influence continues to expand, exposure to this fan base will get more expensive. On top of that, local teams, leagues, and events are starting to tap into new marketing budgets to reach this audience. Currently, game publisher fees represent a large portion of the industry.

Much of this capital has been an investment in marketing by game creators in order to extend the shelf life and relevancy of their games. According to Newzoo, game publisher fees will experience the slowest growth in the upcoming years.

Some even train up to 14 hours a day to hone quick reflexes and multi-tasking abilities. Talented players primarily have two options in pursuing their esports careers:.

Professional players join teams in multi-player games or play solo in 1v1 games to compete for cash prizes. Each team specializes and competes in one specific game, such as League of Legends, Dota, or Counter-Strike. The teams that compete at these tournaments have millions of followers on Twitter, millions watching online, and tens of thousands of spectators following them to in-person tournaments.

A few examples include Evil Geniuses , Fnatic , and Optic Gaming. The best esports teams are recruited to be a part of organizations, have several teams that specialize in their respective video games but operate under the same name e. A few of the games are 1v1 while others are team based and involve two squads competing against each other.

Leveraging a larger fan base following as the organization recruits more high profile players and teams, organizations will seek out sponsorships with brands to access additional revenue streams outside of cash prizes. These are determined by the following and successes of the underlying players and teams of that specific organization.

Just as basketball teams are part of the NBA and compete against each other, esports teams typically under an organization umbrella compete in video game leagues. League tournaments are run by companies such as Major League Gaming MLG or the Electronic Sports League ESL. Leagues include North America League of Legends Championships Series , the Call of Duty World League organized by MLG , or the Pro League for CS:GO organized by ESL.

When Major League Gaming first launched in the early s, its tournaments drew dozens of fans. Earlier this year, the Intel Extreme Masters tournament, held in Katowice, Poland, drew , fans to the stadium over two weekends.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, prize money for the largest tournaments can be enormous. This means that they have rights around where the game is played, who can host video game tournaments, and more. At the end of the day, publishers own the intellectual property of each game, and other industry participants players, teams, tournament organizers are keenly aware of this reality.

However, in June of this year, Riot Games announced franchising and revenue sharing possibilities, which would allow for select players and teams to participate in the upside.

Currently, game publisher fees represent a large portion of the industry. Much of this capital has been an investment in marketing by game creators in order to extend the shelf life and relevancy of their games. According to Newzoo, game publisher fees will experience the slowest growth in the upcoming years.

Merchandise and ticket revenue is money generated from the sale of merchandise and live tournaments. Media rights revenue is the revenue paid to industry stakeholders to secure the rights to show esports content on a channel. This includes payments from online streaming platforms to organizers for broadcasting their content.

This also includes foreign broadcasters securing rights to show content in their country and paying for copyright to show video content or photos of esports competitions. Exclusive content deals, as seen in traditional sports, will drive this growth.

Similar to how the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL follow a franchise model with limited membership in their respective sports, esports in North America seems to be following a similar path. A recent announcement from Riot on their League of Legends title has established a franchise model for the North American league.

As franchising becomes the dominant model, elite teams and organizations will become revenue-generating machines. However, those without franchise spots will be forced to find revenue in secondary leagues or look to establish themselves in titles that have yet to be franchised.

While this consolidation will certainly be painful initially, I view this as a much-needed step forward for the industry as it continues to grow and prune the market. The below chart includes franchising details for the Riot and Overwatch leagues. In esports, broadcasting and media rights will be a key growth driver as the worlds of media and gaming continue to converge.

This includes restrictions around which software licensees members of the public, teams, league organizers can play the game, permit others to play, and allow others to watch the game. Up until recently, publishers have been fairly relaxed about their restrictions.

However, the industry is now reaching a turning point where the adoption of games and of esports has exploded. Consequently, publishers are looking to capitalize on this audience and momentum by monetizing broadcasting and signing exclusive content deals.

And, since players and organizations draw in these fans, they are seeking revenue share agreements with publishers. These new developments are catalysts for the emerging franchise models explained above, whereby teams, players, and publishers yield similar revenue splits.

Looking ahead, publishers will selectively grant broadcasting rights to specific partners and media outlets. One key thing to watch is whether heightened control over streaming and viewing rights will cause fan and player pushback , since publishers have historically encouraged users to share and stream content at their own discretion.

It is true that virtual reality headsets are already being developed specifically for esports audiences. Some games such as Alien Isolation , in fact, already offer VR support, and other games such as EVE Valkyrie have been built specifically with VR in mind.

Still, Alien Isolation and EVE Valkyrie have weak user bases, and VR technology possesses prohibitively high costs and is largely underdeveloped. For example, existing VR technology features often lack adequate interactive components. It will be interesting to see how the virtual reality and esports industries converge going forward, but widespread adoption is unlikely in the short term.

Although now is a great time to invest in esports, many investors understandably find it challenging to navigate its complexity. Still, this complexity translates to a vast, broad range of investment opportunities. Exciting times undoubtedly lie ahead as these various verticals continue to develop monetization strategies for the massive audience base.

One way to gain exposure to the esports sector is through public markets. Below is a list of publicly traded companies that have various connections to and investments in esports.

For example, Tencent owns Riot Games, creator of the most-played game League of Legends, while Activision Blizzard develops the popular games World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Hearthstone.

Sony is partnering with gaming tournament organizer ESL to power Sony Playstation Vue , a hour TV network dedicated to esports. At this point, esports revenues only comprise a small percentage of the overall revenues of these public companies, so at this stage, public market investing is not the primary way to gain exposure to this space.

The private markets are where most esports investments and activity have occurred. Investment sources are varied, including media companies, angel investors, sports celebrities, and professional sports teams, and more institutional sources of private capital such as venture capital funds.

Nevertheless, despite growing interest from VC and angel investors, until today esports is an industry that has been largely untouched by conventional investors.

In May of this year, the NBA announced that 17 of its teams will participate in the NBA 2k League, an esports league and joint project between the NBA and Take-Two Interactive Software.

While VC and angel participation has begun to tick up, generally professional investors remain hesitant. In a newer industry, there are even more unknowns and risk than typical startup investing normally entails, and this is especially true with a space as unique as esports.

Overall, though, I think the tide is starting to shift. Another concern that many venture capital and angel investors often voice pertains to deal volume. However, the data shows that there actually is substantial deal volume. On AngelList and Crunchbase, where startups self-list their companies, unique esports and video gaming startups comprise ~2k listings.

Consider this figure in comparison to those in more established industries: Internet of things 3. Furthermore, though drones and Bitcoin have received substantial hype and funding, the number of esports and gaming startups is 4x the amount of drones industry startups and 2x the amount of Bitcoin startups.
