What is E-Sports?

E-sports, also known as eSports, e-Sports, egames, or electronic sports is organized competitive video gaming. It primarily involves teams competing against each other in tournaments for a prize. Functionally, it’s the same as traditional sports. Top-level athletes are constantly vying for the top spots in their sport, or game, of choice.

Beginning in the 1990s, gaming went from a casual hobby, to an organized professional sport. Today, competitive professional gaming, also known as eSports is a soon-to-be $1 billion dollar industry, championships are watched live by tens of millions of people, and their potential Olympic debut is on the horizon.
