What do you think about eSports being set up and run at a Sqn level or even inter-Wing level ?
Too much of an extra burden ?
I believe we need to get into eSports early on by having Inter Squadron and Wing/Region and Corps competitions. But why you ask, simply it is the fastest growing sport on the planet “The eSports industry has grown at a tremendous pace over the past few years. Per a report from Newzoo, total eSports revenue jumped from $493 million in 2016 to $655 million in 2017, and total revenue could exceed $900 million in 2018.” That is an article from Forbes. The sport is that big the Olympic committee is looking at bringing eSports to the Olympics with it confirming it will have an eSports demonstration at the Paris 2024 Olympics, it outlaws the violent games though as would we due to the age rating of the games, however Rocket League and FIFA are good places to start, even Premier League teams and Formula 1 are getting in on the action. By videoing or streaming our events we can reach even more people and industries than ever before, we could end up with big company sponsors, which in turn brings more money to the Corps and more exposure. It’s also something that appeals to the younger generation so it gives them another activity that can be done at a Squadron, for relatively little costs.
