Friday 17 March 2017 | 13:42 CET | News
Almost 400,000 people in Sweden watch electronic sports or gaming on an average day, according to consultancy Mediavision in an extract from its 'E-sports & gaming 2016/2017' report. This is many more than the audience for traditional sports, it said. In the fourth quarter of 2016, there were an average of 370,000 e-sports and gaming viewers daily, up by 35 percent compared with the final quarter of 2015. This compares with 280,000 traditional sports viewers daily on internet television.
