Esports is a form of sport competition using video games. By the 2010s, esports was a significant factor in the video game industry, with many game developers actively designing and providing funding for tournaments and other events.
Thailand has around 18.3 million gamers, putting it at number 20 in the world, according to the 2017 Global eSports Market Report, conducted by Newzoo. The global eSports industry is worth about US$905.6 million (Bt29.6 billion), and has an astounding growth rate of around 38 percent yearly.
Allen Hsu, country head for strategic partnerships, Garena, said that eSport in Thailand is experiencing continuous growth since every stakeholder, especially the government and the education sectors, have devoted effort and support to drive the sector.
Garena Academy, a flagship campaign initiated by Garena (Thailand), aims to educate young generations and the public about the gaming and eSports industry. In 2020, the concept of the campaign is 'Level up your passion,' focusing on creating correct understanding about careers in the gaming and eSports world, as well as preparing readiness for the young generations who're passionate about gaming and eSports and enabling them to pursue their career in the industry.
