About Us

Google eSports and you'll find multi-million dollar prize pools, packed stadiums (Staples Center, Madison Square Garden, Seoul World Cup Stadium), and millionaire pro-players. At an estimated 250M active players, it is second only to soccer, as the most popular sport in the world.

When the US government recognizes eSports players as professional athletes, it must be real, right? (http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2013/07/14/the-u-s-now-recognizes-esports-players-as-professional-athletes/)
