Short for electronic sports, esports is competitive video gaming at the professional level.

In the same way that conventional sports like tennis and golf hold tournaments for the top players in the world to compete in for cash prizes and notoriety, esports do the same.

Esports brings individual players or teams of players together to do battle in competitive video games like League of Legends, Rocket League and Overwatch.

These competitions are exciting spectator sports whose popularity is sweeping the nation.
