Posted on: May 01, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Esports is in a fast-paced sporting and economic development, where Danish sportsmen are in the world elite. Now, the Danish Minister of Culture has decided that the whole country must have a so-called esports strategy to improve grassroots and business opportunities in the Danish esports landscape.

The Danish government has plans to support the spread of esport and take the initiative to bring together sports players for a joint effort. For this purpose, a broad-based esports panel will be set up to look at a large number of the challenges and opportunities that are within esports.

The Danish Ministry of Culture has outlined some of the key talking points of the panel, which will be set up at an undefined time before the coming summer.

Key areas of inquiry include: The building of a sustainable, top-to-bottom structure for Danish esports, the strengthening of national talent development, establishing a common vision for esports’ integrity, such as tackling toxicity, cheating and skin gambling, the development of communities and associations and how they can impact the lives of players, how to attract more women and girls to esports, how to create good commercial development opportunities for growth, entrepreneurship and employment for esports in Denmark, and other focus areas (revision of laws, rules, etc.) that can support the development of esports.
