This has got to be a first. A football club is spreading its range of teams and now has it’s very own League of Legends team. That’s right, Germany powerhouse, Schalke 04, a club you are customed to hearing about in The Champions League or in the German Bundesliga have launched a new team that plays League of Legends and they will be playing in the European League of Legends Championship series.
This sort of news is to be expected though. The eSports industry is going through an absolutely huge growth and already has gamers earning millions each time they win a tournament. Notable figure Kim Dotcom has even predicted that in 10 years, eSports gamers will earn more than footballers or F1 drivers.
10 years from now the richest person in sports won’t be a golfer or a formula one driver. It will be a gamer.
