The oldest professional sport teams can trace their start back to the mid-19th century, a moment when casual past times such as baseball or football have become more organized leagues. Since this turning stage, Pro Sports has flourished around the globe, and sports business has grown into a multi-billion dollar ecosystem for teams, leagues, players, merchandisers, sponsors, broadcasters, and event spaces.

 This growth is still driven today by the emergence of eSports (electronic sports), an exciting frontier for both fans and business. Despite a reputation in the media and popular culture for being on the fringes, it is obvious that gaming is now a truly mainstream phenomenon. Indeed, $135 billion of worldwide revenue has now eclipsed the global gaming industry–a figure twice as elevated as the combined music and film industries.
