While other countries may lay claim on things like ice skating and soccer, there's no competing with Korea when it comes to esports. The first stadium in the world specifically created for online gaming, here one can experience watching e-sports in real life, as well as play games in the auxiliary room and meet your favorites within the gaming industry. Turn up your nose at the world of e-sports and you’ll be quickly weeded out in this digitally evolving world. Simply ask any of the 40,000 fans who attended the 2014 LoL World Championship final at the World Cup stadium. Or the millions of people who watched worldwide. With two TV channels that broadcast e-sports 24 hours, an active and tight-knit gaming community as well as an e-Sports Stadium that dates back to 2005, Seoul beats out any other city in this survival of the fittest. Anywhere else in the world, it might be a niche thing you’re into—here, we’re in it to win it.
