114: Esports - The Future of Live Sport? w/ Roisin O'Shea (Fnatic), Chester King (British Esports Association) & Chris Paget (Sheridans)

The Digital Sport Insider

Recently I was lucky to host a panel on esports - looking at the live event and fan engagement side of the industry, and what this meant to the sports audience we were sat in front of.  It's a fascinating discussion that addressed a number of points that have come up when esports is talked about in sports circles. Especially on how football teams and sports leagues have entered the industry and what they should be doing.  For more events, keep an eye on DigitalSport.co for what is coming up each month. The London series is presented by Sportradar.
