Electronic Sports (hereinafter referred to as “Esports” or “esports”) as a branch of sport has gained significant traction in the past decade. Esports are now slowly moving away from nascent imagery of entertainment and recreation to a full-grown sport. Like any other industry, esports has metamorphosed into a multi-billion-dollar market and simultaneously has pushed sportspersons into stardom, aiding them to accumulate enormous wealth. However, this privilege does not come without predicaments. Athletes are subjected to several doping tests among other regulations before they engage in any sporting event. Esports is one of the most rapidly growing sectors and is expected to rise to a whopping 1.8 Billion dollars by 2022. The fact that esports regulations are on the same levels as other physical activity sports remains a bone of contention for the industry and therefore, debatable. Oxford Dictionary has also formally included its meaning in the year 2015.
