The term eSport refers to a particular type of video gaming competitions that have become rather popular in the last decade. These virtual tournaments are usually multiplayed online, that is, via the internet.
The most innovative aspect about these competitions is not just their thematic area, but also the big events that run parallel to this trend.
eSport events had an average audience as impressive as 300 million and players, depending on the type of game, range between 50 and 70 million per convention. In Spain, the latest statistics indicated 2.7 million players.
Europe is the focal point of this new formula and Spain leads participation ratios in eSport celebrations.
Once we know that it is an eSport, we can focus on the requirements of these events, which normally need great infrastructure due to the large numbers of people attending them.
Technology, streaming, or visual effects are part of these events agenda.
Like any sport tournament, eSports have their own track and a tiered seating areas. In the former we find the computers, equipment and competitor players and spectators locate in the seating area.
Parallel to the celebration of these tournament games, there are some other activities and festivals such as manga conventions or other types of showcases and conferences introducing the new industry trends.
These big events take normally the format of a 2-3 day gathering for video games lovers from all over the world.
