eSports goes big with MLG.TV

One of the most important components of sport, any sport, is the audience. If a sport is able to draw a huge crowd, then it will also draw huge sponsors. This places eSports in a unique position because events can be streamed and spectators don't have to travel or pay to watch their favorite game competition. Major League Gaming (MLG), one of the most successful eSports organizations in the world, is optimising its eSports coverage with the MLG.TV.

Nice move, MLG. More above the line coverage to get the industry to grow!

Good to see that focus is being brought in here; I'd love to see more of this type of thing being picked up by local TV channels

Just think about the advertising implications!

The eSports phenomenon is truly breaking into the world at a rapid pace. It is taking shape, more so than I expected in the short period of time. I hope that the governing bodies within SA will develop on this trend, and manage our teams with great enthusiasm. Lets get that sponsorships.

I also really hope so, we have a long way to go. IMHO the biggest hurdle for eSports is a governing body. As long as that is not in place/recognized we will struggle to enter the professional arena
