Sports and esports - the same but different?!

The esports market has grown exponentially over recent years. Today, it is lined up to be the next billion dollar industry, reaching broad global audiences and attracting heavy investment and endorsement from major brands across all sectors.

On 24 February and 2 March, Hogan Lovells was joined by guest speakers Matthew Archambault, Head of Esports Partnerships & Business Development, North America + Oceania at Riot Games and Peter Tringali, Legal Counsel for the New York Red Bulls for a webinar that covered the rapidly increasing intersections and cross-over between traditional sports and esports.

Program topics:

  • Same but different? Parallels and divergencies in the sports and esports landscapes - leagues, teams, franchise structures, stadiums, and players.
  • Hey, that's my tattoo! How do "real world" IP and personality rights impact esports?
  • Players and their rights: A growing force to be reckoned with.
  • Esports transaction landscape - what's driving the deals?
