E-Sports: The Digital Revolution Has Just Arrived. The digital revolution’s changed the way you chat, shop, do politics, date, and culture. But the sports seem largely not transformed. From cricket to soccer to tennis, it is just the old staples. Hit a ball over the boundary. Hence, there has not been altogether new sport that is invented over a century. Or is there any?
In the London, Sam Mathews has a court at the Fnatic’s HQ. It is also called the Bunkr. It is a pop-up shop. It was inaugurated last December. This shop is also marketed as “world’s 1st eSports store”. It is a hip as the Shoreditch surroundings. At the Bunkr, people can purchase meet players, eSports equipment, see streamed events and watch live matches.
There is a huge number of video games on the eSports. For them, people might nimble fingers and they must have a fast brain to be succeeded. Just like the traditional sports, its fans follow their favorite teams, watch the matches and they also attend the cup finals, cheer on their stars across the world. Mathews has founded the Fnatic about 13 years ago. He was financially supported by his mother. He has made the Fnatic one of the most popular teams. It is competing in 600 tournaments all around the world. It is taking part in the games like Counter-Strike, League of Legends, Dota2, Overwatch, and Call of Duty. League of Legends team of the Fnatic has already won the first world championship in the year 2011. The Counter-Strike team of it is also considered as one of the best teams, although some of its players are from Britain. Truly speaking, the British players are actually not that good to take part at the top level. According to Mathews, “first world sport is the e-Sport outside of the soccer that’s actually global,”.
The soccer clubs like Manchester City have already begun to sign the Fifa players who are the players of virtual games, than the real thing. Paris Saint-Germain is one of the most ambitious clubs. It has signed the full squad of the players in various eSports that include the League of Legends. Thinking is very simple that is the digital games are where the coming generation of the fans would come from (very first interaction of a young person with the professional soccer club is by the game of Fifa), and hence the eSports are actually a huge source of the future stream of income.
