Competitive gaming is massive in countries across the world, with millions of dollars offered in prize pools, and gaming teams being sponsored by massive brands, such as McDonalds, Nike, Addidas, Intel, AMD and lots more. Some gaming teams even have their own double decker buses, similar to football teams with their branding on the side.
