EA Sports FIFA: More than just a game
We look into the recent developments in the face of homegrown FIFA.
Football is a sport widely watched in the world. The passion behind the sport truly makes it the World's Game.
The virtual aspect to the sport, "EA Sport's FIFA", isn't any different, what casually started as a hangout game played by many teenagers to settle the age-old rivalries or a party game, circling banter around the football world is now a professional sport. FIFA replicates the real sport in a very fancy way with leading football clubs signing eSports athletes, million dollar tournaments happening all across the globe, brands & big players endorsing the game; all at par to the actual sport.
The Indian eSports scene is on a constant rise, with massive strides taken in the Domestic & the International realm by the country's own homegrown talent, the game is getting bigger.
Major competitions are happening all across India where players not just compete for money but for bragging rights, like a celebrity status. eSports athletes are becoming celebrities all over the world. Though in the Indian subcontinent it's still in its foundation years, the pedestal has been laid down.
