WHAT IS ESPORTS?

Esports is electronic competitive gaming in an organised format. Gaming competitions can take place at live events or online. Esports is part of the gaming industry and both are intrinsically linked, it is a fast-moving industry which often capitalises on the latest popular game, quickly promoting or hosting tournaments.

Esports covers a multitude of games including:

  • Traditional sports-based games
  • First-person shooter games, such as Fortnite
  • Team fight strategy games, such as League of Legends

Esports has seen a rapid global growth of both professional players but also professional teams. It is a truly global phenomenon and is easily accessible with low barriers to entry for professional gamers or fans.

With esports tournaments on the rise, and prize money rapidly increasing, the need for financial protection for tournament organisers and esport organisations is becoming more prevalent, as is gamer insurance.
