Massive Audiences For E-sports Predicted

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Mar 8, 2021

Over 400 million fans by 2020

In just four years’ time the eSports global audience will have swollen to 402 million, according to a new survey by Superdata prepared for the European eSports Conference in London.
Other startling predictions from the respected research company are:
* The eSport live and internet audience will grow to 330 million by 2019, and will reach 402 million by the following year;
* League of Legends continues to dominate the market as the competitive game of choice for contests, and has an active player base in excess of 100 million, but relative newcomer Overwatch already earned $767 million last year;
* The sector is currently worth around $1.13 billion, with 5 percent of that flowing from eSports betting at $57 million, far outstripping revenue from merchandising of $22 million. The sector continues to benefit from corporate advertising and sponsorship, which provides 74 percent of earnings.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
