Esports, short for electronic sports, refers to organized, competitive video gaming. It involves professional players, both individually and in teams, competing against each other in various video games.
Similar to traditional sports, esports also encompasses a wide range of game genres, including first-person shooters, multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs), real-time strategy games, sports simulations, and fighting games.
These competitions can take place in a variety of formats, from small local tournaments to large-scale international events with massive prize pools.
Esports has gained a substantial following worldwide, with dedicated fan bases, professional teams, and leagues, as well as broadcasting and streaming platforms for spectators to watch the action live or on-demand.
