Esports (also known as electronic sports, e-sports, or eSports) is a form of competition using video games. The High School Esports League (HSEL) is currently the largest high school esports league in the US. HSEL delivers high school level competition, has 15,000 students on its platform representing 800 schools nationwide, competing in 13 different games including the most popular high school esports, Overwatch and League of Legends. HSEL is also a strong advocate for making esports available to every student as a legitimate varsity level sport in high schools across the nation. Esports is a far bigger phenomenon....at the college level more than 475 schools offer club teams and about 50 offer esports scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 including Division 1 Colleges. Professional esports players are typically sponsored by companies affiliated with video games, including game developers and game-controller manufacturers, and the players compete for multimillion-dollar prizes. Conservative estimates project that the global esports market will be a $1.5 billion industry by 2020. The Paris 2024 Olympic organizers are in discussions to include esports as a demonstration sport.
