Bulgaria: Three Reasons Why eSports are Going to Become More Popular than Football wikipedia

We are living in a world where people are making millions of dollars from computer games. Those of you who remember the days when computer games started to become really popular probably remember that people used to say that they are just a waste of time.

Needless to say, the situation today is a lot different. Not only are there millions of gamers from every continent, but there are also specialized schools and even universities where people study some games, which are considered as eSports.

After seeing the growth of this industry in the last couple of years, we firmly believe that it’s just a matter of time before eSports becomes even more popular. Here are a few reasons that will back our claim.

Some of the biggest companies are starting to sponsor almost every top tournament

Regardless of the eSport you're interested in, each one has tournaments that have prize pools which can reach up to a few million dollars. Some of them, such as Dota 2, can even surpass ,000,000, which is just insane.

What’s even more impressive is that these prize pools are available even without some of the world’s biggest corporations. However, most of them are starting to see the potential in eSports investing, which is why we have many big automotive companies and many others who are starting to get more involved in gaming.

If this trend continues, it’s just a matter of time before eSports become more popular than football.

More people are starting to watch and play

Another reason why we think that eSports is slowly going to surpass football is because of the fans. There is no arguing that the number of football fans right now is a lot more compared to eSports. Nevertheless, almost every kid nowadays plays some type of computer game. Naturally, once those kids get older, they will probably continue to be interested in what they did when they were young.

Another thing that eSports fans love to do is place bets. Sure, football betting is still number one, but thanks to websites like 1xbet, betting on eSports has never been easier. Read this review with ratings of 1xbet, and you will see why so many gamers decide to try their luck.

You can play on all eSports from your home

This is the last reason but we think it will play a crucial role in the popularity of eSports in the future. The fact that you can play from your PC or laptop allows you to enjoy these games wherever you are, which is not the case with football unless you have a giant yard where you can play.

However, it will probably take some time for most people to learn how to play these games properly. Sadly, most of them are pretty difficult, so unless you have a lot of gaming experience, you might have to play for some time before you get used to everything.
