2.0 - The Opportunity
This is eSPORTS
There is a new kind of sport that could be bigger than football, basketball, and baseball combined. In fact, the industry that makes it possible is already larger than the entire worldwide sports market. This is eSPORTS, the ﬁrst truly universal sport, where anyone can play and compete. Building the ecosystem that can bring gamers together for fair and challenging play, regardless of skill level and location, is an enormous opportunity that can change the world.
We have built that ecosystem today. Will you join us?
The term “eSports” is characterized by regional or international video gaming events in which professional and amateur players compete against each other. In 2021, the global eSports market was valued at just over $1.08 billion U.S. dollars, an almost 50 percent increase from the previous year. Additionally, the eSports industry's global market revenue was forecast to grow to as much as $1.62 billion U.S. dollars in 2024. Asia and North America currently represent the largest eSports markets in terms of revenue, with China alone accounting for almost 1/5 of the market.
