Stats You Don’t Know BUT Your Learners Do

In the past decade, competitive gaming has experienced a meteoric rise in popular culture and economic value.

Esports is the fastest growing sport in the country, and colleges have begun to respond to that demand by offering scholarships for varsity esports teams. These scholarships can range from a couple hundred dollars a year to full tuition.

This is literally something your child could make money doing!

Here are a handful of Esports Statistics

  • The total market value of the esports industry exceeded $1 billion in 2021. 
  • The US is predicted to have the top esports market share by 2023 (PwC)
  • Approximately one in seven US internet users will watch esports by 2023 (eMarketer) 
  • By 2024, there are expected to be 285.7 million esports enthusiasts. And an additional 291.6 million occasional viewers
