What is Esports?
Esports is professional competitive videogaming that are played for spectators. The most common video game genres associated with Esports are real-time strategy, fighting, first-person shooter (FPS), and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA).
Unlike most traditional sports, the live experience of watching a game is centered around having simultaneous broadcasts. That means there is always something for the audience to listen to, complementing the gameplay.

The Western Fair Rocket League London Open will take place starting Saturday September 16th with an Open Entry qualifier. Players will queue for a sit-n-go format where each round will consist of one five minute match after which the winner will earn one point, and the loser will exit and can rejoin the queue. The winner will then compete in the next round against another winner and 16 players from the queue will join that round. Players can continue to accumulate points throughout the day and at the end of the tournament the players with the most points will be invited back Sunday, September 17th to compete in the $5,000 Grand Finals against local RLCS pro players in a double elimination bracket.
