The fastest-growing discipline in sports is not soccer, it’s esports; especially after COVID-19.
Esports players and teams are competing around the globe for thousands to millions of dollars. Some American Universities have esports teams and offer esports scholarships to recruited players. Billions of dollars are, and have been, poured into the esports industry by traditional professional sports leagues, major corporations and high-income investors. Finally, the Olympic Movement is courting esports for inclusion in the Olympic Games. These facts present major representation opportunities for attorneys on both the transactional side, as well as in the realm of dispute resolution.
