The road ahead

Professional Esports is growing at a rapid pace and League of Legends is standing tall as a cornerstone in the competitive Esports scene. Despite new games emerging with new esports leagues and tournaments being created, League of Legends has maintained its stature as an elite and well respected esport and will continue to go from strength to strength for the following reasons:

  • The game is a classic and loved by many. 100 million plus fans can’t be wrong!
  • It is a global game.
  • The large playing base provides for a strong grassroots scene which keeps things at the top highly competitive and well contested.
  • It has stood the test of time. LoL has been around for nearly a decade. A big challenge new esports face is being able to maintain relevance and popularity long enough to establish a competitive and professional scene.
  • League of Legends has without doubt the most professional and well organised Leagues and Tournaments globally. If there is one thing that is currently holding esports back when compared to traditional sports, it is the lack of professionalism and structure around the operations of leagues and tournaments. LoL is leading the charge for esports on this, other esports need to follow suit.

The future is bright for LoL Esports. The fanbase, tournaments and prize pools will continue to grow and betting on League of Legends will be well in amongst all the action!
