Live performance of players, their actions, the roar of the crowd, fans’ reaction, the energy, all are some of the key components of a great sporting match that makes it exhilarating. However, with the coming of the pandemic, and social distancing being a prime concern, experiencing sports on-ground have come to a halt.

It surely has put pressure on the sports industry; however, it has instead accelerated the mobile and online gaming sector and particularly leveraged the dawning esports industry in India. From mobile to consoles to PC gaming, every player is competing in matches/tournaments from the comfort of their home, thus creating the trend of virtual stadiums.
