Has the electronic sports (e-Sports) phenomenon officially arrived in Guyana?
This is the firm belief of sports journalist Michelangelo Jacobus, who served as the coordinator of the recent inaugural I-Bet Supreme FIFA 20 ‘League of Champions’ e-Sports tournament.
Jacobus said, “This is an area previously untouched; I say untouched despite there being like two FIFA tournaments being held before; those were organized as one day events and that was it.
Throughout the world professional gamers make a living from e-Sports, some specialise in one game, others are all-rounders.
The idea is to create a gaming community here with our tournaments where gamers can have a chance to earn a consistent income as we get deeper into the e-Sports market.”
