US Government now accepts LCS as a sports

The official announcement comes from twitter Leigh "Deman" Smith, at Riot eSports commentator, who announced entry into the United States of LCS in the list of sports along with other big names such as the NBA, NFL or the NHL.

This is what Deman said « You may have missed an announcement. The U.S. government recognizes the LCS as a sport, just like the NBA, NFL or NHL to the pros now obtain visas. »

Following numerous successes eSportives in recent months, as the All Stars who held spellbound over 18 million people online and off, it was expected that the recognition of eSports develops and spreads on a global scale. But such an announcement was rather unexpected in qualifying times for the World Championships Season 3 Leagues of Legends that are revealed gradually. The euphoria immediately contaminated the LoL community worldwide.

What changes to expect professional players?

First, if one relies on the case of the NBA, it would leave open the possibility for other leagues to create to complete the championships League of Legends. In addition, it would allow players and managers belong to specialized in the sector of eSports unions. That would leave also, for example, the possibility to develop eSports academic activity in the USA.

All this will become clearer course in the coming weeks, but we can already say that eSports has a bright future ahead of him and could we still reserve good surprises in the future after the boost from the U.S. government

So, great news for LCS and great news as a symbol to E-Sports!
