In a rather ironic short posted to eSports weekly, Steven Arhancet, co-owner of Team Liquid, and Jason Lake, owner of Complexity, discussed the involvement of sponsorship in eSports. Host Kevin Knocke opened the segment with an astounding figure of 80% which makes up eSports revenue, which begs the question – Is eSports too dependent on Sponsors? Short answer, yes. But is this a bad thing?
“The support from our fantastic sponsors and all the teams taking part will make a real difference to the lives of young people across the UK and we’re grateful so many people helped support this fantastic goal.”
