According to the International Esports Federation IESF, the active Esports community already numbered over 200 million enthusiasts in 2019. A revenue of over 1 billion USD was registered, with a strong continued upward trend.

In a recent presentation by the IOC on its Agenda 2020 +5, the IOC expressed determination to rejuvenate its audience with a high focus on a more digital targeted audience. Meaning that virtual sports will be considered in the Olympic program in a form yet to be defined.
