Tailored eSports Legal Solutions in Germany
Over the last decade, the world of eSports has become one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. The European market itself, which currently generates one third of revenue worldwide, is expected to grow to a volume of $400m by 2021. This phenomenon is accentuated further in Asia, where some of the best professional eSports players reside and compete. Some of the most popular eSports players there have public profiles as prominent as those of western celebrities.
Following its incredible success and popularity, the professionalization of the eSports industry was a logical step. However, the process of professionalization has also been accompanied with increased legal issues such as player employment contracts, sponsorship agreements and a professional approach to payments, social security and employment conditions in general.
