The most common video game genres associated with eSports are real-time strategyfightingfirst-person shooter (FPS), and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). The winners of such events usually get huge cash prizes. ESports are extremely popular in Asia and in the western world. It is slowly gaining traction in Africa and particularly in Zambia. LudoHub Co-founder Eddie Musabula explained in a recent interview that there is a market for eSports in Zambia. What is needed to develop it is improved IT infrastructure and support from telecoms and corporations , he continued. “Internet gaming generates demand for network infrastructure improvements at both local and regional level” he went on to say .
