News business ES1 Esport Business: what is the future of esport competitions?
Presented by CIC, ES1’s Esport Business is your show devoted to esport and its economy. In this eighth episode, Alexandre Ruiz and Bertrand Amar are interested in the future of video game competitions, and in particular the rise of closed leagues.
In traditional European sport, it is customary to organize competitions open to all teams, regardless of their level. The esports world is increasingly adopting a closed league system, based on the American model of franchises like the NBA or the NHL. It is on this basis that championships like the Overwatch League or the LEC (European League of Legends Championship) were born. Does this system harm the esports interest? Laure Valée, esport journalist, sharing some answers in an interview taken from the documentary ES1 2020, esport is accelerating the movement (to see or see again on the CIC Youtube channel).
