The ESI Podcast on immigration – going international

In the final episode of the esports podcast in collaboration with Esports Insider we contemplate esports' international appeal. What can we learn from offline sports in their approach to going international? What barriers do esports have to overcome? One clear difference relates to immigration status – esports players are not recognised as professional athletes when applying for visas, but as entertainers.

Featured in this episode are:

  • Maria Patsalos, Partner – Mishcon de Reya
  • Ollie Ring, Head of Business Development & Media – Esports Insider (host)
  • Clement Murphy, Marketing Manager – FACEIT
  • Kieran Holmes-Darby, Co-Founder & Managing Director – Excel
