Esports, or competitive video gaming broadcasted online, is becoming a popular industry, and it’s not stopping anytime soon. According to CNN, eSports is expected to reach global revenue of $1 billion by 2019. That means that professional and semi-professional players need to be proactive about protecting their profits and signing contractual agreements.

There are some critical factors including restrictions and limitations in a contract that esports players should be aware of.

Program Highlights

Yesports will co-organize the International Esports Talents Booster Program, a 5-day intensive program, to prepare those participating talents for the Event. Talents participating in the Program (and/or excel in the final contests of the Program) may have the opportunity to represent Hong Kong, China to participate in the Event, subject to the satisfaction of the Asian Games and related qualifying entities. The final winners, hopefully through this process, can showcase their skills and profiles on an international scale and access to potential prize pool of millions, not to mention that the Asian Games Award is being perceived as having a similar status as that of Olympic Games.
