Esports is growing at a phenomenal phase. However most of the titles in esports are CSGO and Mobaś such as League of Legends, Dota2 etc.
However the traditional games such as football, racing and NBA are definitely somethings that cater to a niche audience.
In an exclusive report on NBA;
“There are risks, but if this does work, this will pay off enormously,” McCaffrey said. “Not necessarily for the financial in the short term, but more of the longevity and health of the NBA and brand with retaining that young audience. I think them tying the eLeague to the actual NBA teams is brilliant.”
It will be interesting to see how this will turn out in the future.
