Over the last decade, Alienware has nurtured the growth of esports, which is now quickly outplacing more traditional sports and growing at a rapid scale. Last year, viewers watched an astonishing 18.6 billion hours of content and, this year, the industry is expected to surpass US$1 billion in revenue.
With this phenomenal growth comes significant job opportunities too, and not just for the players and trainers. It takes thousands of software engineers, content creators, data analysts, game designers, social media specialists, venue operators, accountants, lawyers and more to make the world of esports turn.
Alienware and Team Liquid have partnered for the last 10 years on this phenomenal esports journey. Alienware is announcing the Good in Gaming initiative in partnership with Team Liquid, driven by a shared vision of a gaming community where everyone feels respected and included. Good in Gaming will focus on community, education, empowerment and competition.
Alienware and Team Liquid will offer young gamers mentorships, scholarships and internships to help them grow and gain access to resources and connections. So, whether their passion is to play on the battleground or drive behind-the-scenes action, the gaming world has a place for everyone.
In the months ahead, Alienware will announce specific programmes: from mentorship, internship and scholarship programmes; online resources for aspiring esports pros; to tournaments welcoming of everyone with the will to compete. The goal is to be a force for positive change in the industry and open doors for a new generation of players and engineer, creators, analysts, designers, accountants, lawyers and more.
