Esports and gaming have exploded into the mainstream in recent years, evolving from a thriving niche to a central form of entertainment around the world. Ticket sales are shifting away from the arena and toward the internet. While esports was once considered a subset of sports culture, it has now developed into a thriving industry in its own right, according to Forbes.
The popularisation of esports has contributed to the explosive growth in esports investment and revenue in recent years. This level of popularity has been achieved in large part as a result of the social component of live streaming and video gaming. Fans have a direct line of communication with players and teams through video gaming-specific streaming platforms such as Twitch and YouTube Gaming, while more mainstream social media platforms have allowed those connections to flourish. Certain esports organisations, such as FaZe Clan, are also expanding aggressively into other areas, such as merchandise, in order to gain more recognition for their brands than they would have gained if they had stayed solely in esports.
