League of Legends – a Real Sport in US

No Comments

Earlier this week, Leigh “Deman” Smith (one of League of Legends professional casters) revealed that The US Governement recognizes the LCS (the League of Legends Championship Series) as a Sport on par with NBA, NFL and NHL.

The main reason for this decision is to enable professional LoL players to get visas more easily in order to participate in the tournaments. Although it’s good news to all LoL players, this doesn’t mean that all eSports are recognized as “real sport” (yet).
