Justin Mifsud

Having seen the growth of the esports sector first-hand, Justin Mifsud, Founder and CEO of World Pro Racing – which organises simulation racing events and broadcasting across the world – is in no doubt as to its potential in the years ahead.

His comments were first featured in a Cover Story on the future of gaming, carried in the Winter 2021/2022 edition of iGaming Capital magazine, the sister publication to iGamingCapital.mt.

The pandemic, he says, not only boosted esports viewership to levels previously unheard of but completely changed perceptions of the activity, making clear its capacity to influence sectors beyond its own.

“Esports is growing so rapidly that everyone is now realising how huge the industry can be and are looking to get a slice of the cake,” Mr Mifsud says.

“The opportunities available are far wider than with traditional sport, not only in financial terms with the multi-million investments taking place, but even having a better chance at competing in real motorsport championships. Motorsport teams today are watching esports events to scout new drivers for their teams.”
