Esports is an umbrella term for multiple competitive gaming disciples, each of which has its own fan base, leagues and tournaments. Even though the esport industry is big, the grassroot movement is substantially smaller, compared to other sports. The process of moving from amateur to professional esports, the infrastructure of the future esports industry and why grassroot movements play a crucial role in building it is the foundation of this talk.

"Alliance has a great tradition of working with games and community from the grassroots across almost all our competitive titles. We also have a strong tradition of fielding and building up divisions with youth rosters or a mix of youth and veterans. We have seen evidence that with a strong grassroot scene, the longevity of the esport is always much more secured, than a scene that is top-heavy"
