Joshh Hafkin, CEO of Game Gym added to these thoughts with: “Mainstream adoption will increase based on two factors: parental acceptance for gamers in grades K-12, and growth of a fan base for college and pro teams.

“Most parents are still skeptical about the value of eSports, but as that changes over time, that will fuel the wider acceptance of eSports as a valid hobby. Most viewers of eSports competitions are gamers themselves, but as the fan base expands to encompass non-gamers (the way non-athletes watch college and pro football and basketball, for example), that will also contribute to mainstream adoption.”
