No longer relegated to teenage basement lairs, gaming is growing in popularity across a surprising number of populations – it’s not just stereotypical gamers. With more than 1.4 million people tuning in at once to watch last year’s League of Legends championship match, people are beginning to change their perceptions of gaming and recognize esports as an alternative to sporting entertainment.
