10 Countries Esports is Growing Massively
The countries where Esports is kind of a BIG deal

7. Ukraine


Dendi is one of the best Dota 2 players in the world and hails from Ukraine. One of the thing's he is famous for is his 95% hook accuracy with Pudge.

Home of some the Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive legends, this country has proven that it is a force to be reckoned with. It’s had some of the greatest (single person) success stories in all of the Esports scene and continues to have returning names and faces. Although the success stories are focused mainly on a few names, these players have made over half a million during their career. This country will hold it’s place as one of the most experienced and many names are popping up following in the footsteps of their previous professional players.

6. Canada

Canada may not be known for being an aggressive country but when it comes to gaming, they take it seriously. With successful players in games ranging from Dota 2 and Smite, and League of Legends to Call of Duty, Counter Strike and Starcraft 2; Canada has proven that they’re growing and will continue to be a huge competitor not just known for a few titles, but for being so well rounded.

5. Germany

The success Germans have had when it comes to the Esports scene is impressive. With Dota 2 and Counter-Strike being the most played in the scene they compete at levels many can only dream about. They are strong and have proven to be profitable. It’s pretty clear that the competitive scene has become strong and will continue to grow over time. Keep an eye out for this country because as it gains more acknowledgement we expect there to be a spike in the amount of funds to massively grow the Esports scene.

4. Sweden

The countries on the list so far have been relatively close in regards to the size of their competitive scene but this country is when we see a spike in the amount of successful professional play. The players and teams of Sweden have more than doubled the profit that Germany has seen, being just shy of $10,000,000. Sweden is home to a popular brand “Kinguin” which is a strong contributor to the Esports growth in this country; being most known for their Dota 2 and Counter Strike players, Sweden has secured the fourth spot for what a successful country in Esports is.
