What are Esports?

Esports are organized video game competitions, often tournament style, where players and teams from all over the world compete for prize money and notoriety. There are many Esports competitions around the world and across all gaming platforms.

Tournaments such as The International, the League of Legends World Championship, the Evolution Championship Series and the Intel Extreme Masters provide live broadcasts of the competition, and prize money to competitors.

Esports are extremely popular with college-aged participants. An estimated 22% of American male millennials watch Esports, virtually equal with baseball and hockey in terms of viewership among that demographic, according to industry analyst NewZoo.
