The earliest records show that the term "esports" was first used in the late 1990s, but there is no general agreement on when this social activity first began. With the growth of the Internet and the need for content to fill this new medium, electronic sports began to take on the structure we know them for. Over time, groups that tried to compete within the same game led to initiatives from brands and game developers. They took particular aspects of competitiveness and created e-sports-specific games.
Esports have since been consolidated into tournaments in North America, including Mexico. The advancement of technology facilitated the growth of telecommunications operators, which sparked the growth of broadband networks. This was a key to the growth of esports in Mexico.
Before 2004, the Mexican government only authorized a few online gambling operators in the country. But even then, Mexicans were not permitted to use any online betting platform based outside of the country, most of which offered unique markets. With the laws being eased, various betting operators have started offering various markets in the Esport competitions. Esports in Mexico is now a way for people in the country to show that they want to be the best at the game they play.
