It is predicted that e-sports will grow to 1.6 billion dollars (about 2.2627 trillion won) in total global sales in two years. Apart from game sales, the market created only by competition of professional players is growing day by day.

“Lospor Ventiquatro” is the world’s largest e-sports event in terms of viewers. “The two teams will compete in a group of five,” he explained, and then introduced Korean professional gamer Faker (real name Lee Sang-hyuk, 26) as the best star.
“Losport Venti Quattro,” which told Italian readers that this year’s quarterfinals of the League of Legends World Championship (LOL World Cup) were held at Madison Square Garden in New York, which leads to sports and performances, emphasized more than $2.2 million (31.1 billion won) in prize money.
