Brands, Sports, and Esports: A Brand (R)evolution
February 17–18, 2020
Traditional sports continue to impact our lives on a daily basis—with the excitement of numerous tournaments and championship games, the reach of players around the world off the field, and the visibility of social issues like equal pay for players. It is estimated that Football has a global followership of more than 4 billion fans and viewers. Nothing can replace the passion for traditional sports, but the booming industry of esports is tapping into a new generation of fans, players, and formats, and already reaching more the 395 million viewers—and growing every day. With the increase in viewers, there has also been an influx in revenue to the esports industry, as brands are recognizing not only the potential, but the potential value of this fast-growing industry.
