FIFA Esports: How Popular is FIFA in the eSport World?
FIFA esports has been with us for well over a decade. Not only have we seen the FIFA eWorld Cup growing in profile, but a number of big-money brands like Audi have started sponsoring FIFA esports teams. Despite these positive moves, there remain big questions over whether FIFA esports has what it takes to catch up to the popularity of competitive games like Dota 2 , CS:GO and LoL . FIFA is one of the world’s biggest-selling gaming franchises. As of 2018, the series had sold over 260 million copies since EA released its first incarnation of FIFA in 1993.
