eSports is a big market – a global business, generating hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Despite the amazing market potential and growth eSports currently lacks in possibilities that are fundamental for its future development.
Even though the participation in eSports and its income are rising quickly, very few well known professional players are well paid. Most players receive little or nothing for their achievements and their commitment.
As a relatively young and booming industry, eSports lives from the enthusiasm of its community but has a clear need for professional market structures that ensure secure, easy and transparent contracts between all parties.
