What is Esports?
Esports refers to electronic sports in the form of competitive video gaming. Esports is a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar industry spanning K-12, amateur, collegiate, and professional levels of competition, entertainment, and spectatorship. Esports competition typically consists of individuals but more often teams of a particular title going head-to-head at local and national events.
