Sports beyond football: The esports and video games resolution of the EU Parliament

While global news had football on their daily agenda, the European Parliament has been planning further ahead. Last month, it published a resolution on esports and video games, appreciating their significant economic and cultural impact in our digital day and age. The resolution summarizes the current state of esports and video games – as the leading and fastest growing cultural and creative sector across Europe – and sets a number of ambitious targets for the European legislator. These integrate with the other aspects of Europe’s “Digital Decade”, and it is rewarding to see that this initiative looks beyond the risks of modern technology and appreciates the immense potential of the gaming industry.
