Commonwealth Video games takes massive step in direction of esports


A trial happened on the Commonwealth Video games in Birmingham final weekend to see whether or not esports might take their place alongside conventional sports activities like swimming and athletics.

100 gamers representing 20 completely different Commonwealth nations fought for medals in three completely different video video games: Rocket League, Dota2 and eFootball.

The trial was broadly thought to be successful. The president of the Commonwealth Video games Federation, Dame Louise Martin, instructed the BBC: “Going ahead this shall be a sport inside the Video games – that’s my private opinion.”
