eSports will be bigger than real sports in five years
Will we be watching live sport or gamers in five years time? This session brings two key players from the eSport industry to explore how it's become a modern-day phenomenon.
Andy Dinh , Team SoloMid
In the world of competitive video gaming, Dinh may be the next Michael Jordan or Nolan Ryan--a professional player turned team owner and sports icon. His Team SoloMid is North America's top squad in the Tencent-owned game League of Legends, a hugely popular eSport which attracts 100 million players monthly and sells out arenas like Madison Square Garden for live competitions. Dinh has been aggressive about monetizing the business, bringing in sponsors like Geico, HTC, Red Bull and Logitech.
