The emergence of an official electronic sports league, the first forum of experts and that one of the most important developer houses in the world signed an alliance with a Costa Rican university are signs that the country already has a professional gamer industry.

Several experts in the field agree on this, who estimate that this market can move more than US$100 thousand annually in its activity in the country, reports La República (in Spanish).

Currently, there are more than 600 players registered in the Federación Nacional de Deportes Electrónicos – National Federation of Electronic Sports – and eight professional teams competing in the Liga Costarricense de Deportes Electrónicos – Costa Rican League of Electronic Sports, the only one of its kind in Central America and the Caribbean.
