Esports is growing at an exponential rate. Many countries are taking Esports seriously as the competition is being featured in various multi-sports events like the Asian Games.

International Olympic Committee has also discussed the inclusion of Esports in future Olympic events.

China became the first country in 2003 to recognize Esports as a real sport. Since then, many countries like South Korea, Denmark, Germany, and Indonesia followed the trend.

A month ago, Chaudhry also BOL TV host Waqar Zaka that a national level Esports tournament would take place in March through private sponsorship. He also confirmed that Pakistan’s gaming industry is growing at 20 percent annually.
