Since 2010, the immense popularity of E-sports has been rocketing to mammoth heights, boasting global viewership of over 150 million. It’s not just viewership that’s rocketed either, insanely lucrative prize pools are now up for grabs. In 2010 the total global esports prize pool stood at $35m, in 2018 it’s now in excess of a staggering $121m!
In particular, Fifa is one of the hottest games within this new domain. Taken to the masses by Twitch, this scene is well on it’s way to being worth billions and we can’t wait to see where it goes. As a keen FIFA player himself, there was no one better to dive into this for us than our very own AGT. Enjoy and let us know if you think he’s missed anyone out!
