As of now, Esports has officially become a sport. We can expect in near future many International companies to sponsor teams and players. As that being said many players in Pakistan earn through Digital Marketing For example platforms like YouTube and Twitch have many Pakistani players pushing their way to the top, But without a proper sponsor, they cant rise like many other Countries' players do.

There are many ways a player earn his/her money for example
