The esports industry generated more than $1 billion in revenue in 2017 and is expected to continue its upwards climb in 2018. With investment increasing and viewership figures growing, esports is well on its way to matching the might of traditional sporting events.

Esports events now find their way onto our televisions, fill stadiums around the world with energetic fans and produce stars and celebrities like Faker and KuroKy. Prize money is increasing and the quality of broadcasts, like Riot’s NA LCS and Blizzard’s Overwatch League, are improving. It’s only so long until football, basketball and boxing take a back seat to League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

As the esports scene continues to grow, Final Kill hopes to provide quality insight into the market and its growth, from increases in revenue to new sponsorship deals. Get stuck in to some quality esports industry news, opinions, videos and more below:
