Gfinity rapidly expanding global footprint as the market wakens to the huge eSport opportunity

Neville Upton, chief executive of Gfinity Plc (LON:GFIN) explains to Proactive's Andrew Scott the increasing appeal around eSports and their involvement in the space.

''It's the fastest growing form of entertainment - video games - and eSports is a part of that'', Upton says.

''It's growing very, very quickly  and for many people under 30 this is a major part of their life''.

''There's also a perception that it's somehow kids in bedrooms but it's simply not that ... over half of people who compete or watch these competitions have got jobs, are married ... it's very, very mainstream''.

Neville Upton adds: ''I think the reason why people haven't cotton on to it is that a lot of the decision-makers are over 30 but people are getting more and more aware of it''.
