What is Esports?
Have you been to a cricket match? If not, you might have seen a match on your television.
Esports is similar to any other traditional sports but the only difference is that these sports are held online. And thousands of spectators from all over the world join to see their favorite play. There are options where the spectators can show their support to the players as well as cheer for them. So, all in all, you attend the match online where you get the similar experience as you will be getting while attending a match in a real stadium.
Esports is referred to as ‘Electronic Sports’ and it is pretty much clear with the name that it is a video gaming sports arena, only more professional as compared to casual online gaming.
