If you’re not sure what all the fuss about esports is, consider this: in 2017 an esports event called the Intel® Extreme Masters World Championship held in Poland set a new record for live attendance with more than 173,000 people attending to watch the action – live, in real time. That’s about 100,000 people more than the Superbowl got! In fact, esports is recognised as the fastest growing spectator sport in the world.
Rush is an opportunity for all local gaming fans and enthusiasts to get a small taste of this esports phenomenon first hand.
