Paris Olympic Bid Committee Considering Adding Esports To 2024 Olympics

In what would be a giant move for the growth of esports, Paris Olympic bid committee Co-President Tony Estanguet told the Associated Press they are considering adding esports to the 2024 Olympics.

While there has yet to be voting in relation to the matter, the committee does consider it a possibility due to the growing interest among the younger demographics. Estanguet stated..

“We have to look at it because we can’t say, ‘It’s not us.’ It’s not about Olympics. The youth, yes, they are interested in esport[s] and this kind of thing. Let’s look at it. Let’s meet them. Let’s try if we can find some bridges.”

“There is some time to look at it, to interact, to engage. We will spend some time after Lima (the IOC meeting in September) to engage with new people and stakeholders. The IOC will have the last … say, if they want esports on the program.”
