Esports, short for electronic sports, refers to a form of competitive gaming where professional players and teams compete against each other in various video game titles. This phenomenon has rapidly evolved over the past few decades, transforming video gaming from a casual pastime into a full-fledged industry with a global audience. In esports, players engage in organized tournaments and competitions, often in team-based formats, across a wide range of genres such as first-person shooters, real-time strategy, multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs), sports simulations, and more. These events are typically streamed live on online platforms, including Twitch, YouTube, and others, attracting millions of viewers from around the world. Just like traditional sports, esports has its own professional players, coaches, team managers, and dedicated fan base. Players showcase their skills, reflexes, and strategic thinking, aiming to outperform their opponents and secure victory in high-stakes tournaments with substantial prize pools. Some top esports players have achieved celebrity status and enjoy lucrative endorsement deals. The international appeal of esports has led to global tournaments and world championships that unite players and fans from different countries, fostering a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship. In recent years, esports has become a melting pot of talent from diverse backgrounds, bridging cultures and nationalities through a shared passion for gaming.

Japan’s strong gaming culture and technological advancements represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Moreover, the rising popularity of competitive gaming among the youth is generating interest in esports events and competitions.
