Will eSports Replace NFL?

JD Mullane of the Seattle Intelligencer: “The 21st century will not be kind to the NFL, because Millennials don’t watch much network television, the league’s main recruiting tool for young fans. Today, the NBA and Major League Soccer have the youngest fan bases, and healthy growth ahead.”

“But not even the NBA and soccer will outperform the nation’s new stealth pastime, which is competitive video gaming, collectively called eSports.”

“Last year, the League of Legends competition was held in China, with 60 million unique online viewers, topping 2016′s viewership of 43 million. Average age of a U.S. eSports fan: 28.”

“What is the League of Legends World Championship Final?”

“It’s what’s will replace the Super Bowl.”
