What are eSports?
"It is not if, but when will esports become the most popular sport in the world"
You probably still call them video games - but some now go by the formal title of eSports. This? It's a mammoth global obsession with audiences bigger than most 'mainstream' pursuits, except most are blind to it. There are expert coaches, rigorous training programs, grueling practice sessions and intense post-game analysis. Aspirants join leagues, try out for professional teams and after lots of practice, make it to the tournament circuit.
