The field of competitive, organised video gaming is referred to as electronic sports.In popular at-home games like Fortnite, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch, and Madden NFL, players from different leagues or teams compete against one another. Millions of fans watch and follow these gamers from all around the world, whether they attend live events or watch them on TV or online. Viewers may watch their favourite gamers play in real-time on streaming platforms like Twitch and Youtube and this is often where popular players grow their fan bases. Esports is becoming more popular by the day. The phenomenal development in esports users have given many benefits to organisations but has also brought many obstacles.
