Alright, my words are gonna sound a lil’ crazy but there’s definitely a grain of truth in it. So here goes;

Gaming can actually get you revenue nowadays.

But wait up; before you start throwing stuff at me, let me just start with a key event that’s going to take place in Singapore very soon:

A FIFA tournament comprising the top 64 players in the industry.

But here’s the thing: they’re not competing for your average $2,000, $5,000 or even $10,000 prize.

They’re battling it out for $50,000.

Yes, folks.

$50,000.

Champion takes it all

Meet Donovan “F2Tekkz” Hunt.

Despite being just 17 years of age, Hunt has become the hottest player on the FIFA gaming circuit right now, sitting atop the football simulation game’s global leaderboards for Xbox One.  The accomplishment comes after he swept two of four major tournaments in the 2018-19 season.

Oh, and he also picked up US$100,000 (S$135,693) in the process.

Dope, huh?

But it’s evidently not enough as Hunt’s battling it out once again, this time as one of 64 top Fifa players who will be showcasing their skills in Singapore at the US$100,000 PGL Fifa Ultimate Team (FUT) Champions Cup, held from Friday to Sunday (8 March to 10) at [email protected] in Jurong East.

The champion takes home US$50,000.

Profession: Pro Gaming

And that leads to my hypothesis:

Pro gaming can actually be considered a… well… profession. But the question is…

How much can you earn from it?

According to info.jkcp.com, the average eSports salary is actually around $60,000. And that’s not even the highest. Doubting it? I don’t blame you. But here, take a look at these statistics Esportsearnings.com previously reported.
