Ferrari Hublot Esports Series was announced by F1 driver Charles Leclerc, with Nicola Boari, Chief Brand Diversification Officer, Valerio Piersanti, head of Business Development. Ferrari Hublot Esports Series is the debut of the Italian team in the world of digital racing.
Not that Ferrari was extraneous to the world of simulated racing, on the contrary: Ferrari Driver Academy has long managed the export division. The novelty is that the Ferrari Hublot Espors Series will be a tournament developed, managed and promoted entirely by Ferrari, complete with customized liveries for the drivers, who will be divided between amateurs, selected online in the first phase of the initiative, and professionals, invited to hoc.
It will run on Assetto Corsa, another Italian excellence, this time signed by Kunos Simulations, will begin next autumn and from August 7 all European sim drivers who have already turned 18 can register. Boari said: "We prefer to consolidate structure and organization, before extending the participation to other territories and to younger drivers."
In America it will be studied Esports Management and Design
Not one but two are the Esports training and specialization courses set up by Jackson College, Michigan, which will thus give students the opportunity to obtain certification in Esports Management and Esports Design courses.
It was David Smith, Management teacher and director of sports management of the College, to explain the reasons that led to this forward-looking initiative: "There are many employment opportunities in esports, it is a field that is growing, a young man who find jobs in this area can earn between $ 30,000 and $ 150,000 a year.
" As reported by the College website, the course in Esports Management will prepare you for the management of the commercial aspects of esports: a very general program, which encompasses skills ranging from those required for the managerial roles of a team (coaches, administrators, marketing employees, etc.).
) and for the roles required in the organization and management of esports related events (marketing specialists, social media, and so on). The Esport Game Design path is more specific: it starts from 3D modeling and proceeds with the animation and lighting of the game environment, more and more fundamental aspects in a title that focuses on Esports and winks at the competitive sector.
Both courses, however, will be held entirely online and can therefore be attended by students from the comfort of their homes, without the obligation to attend college premises in person. Also former English soccer star David Beckham become a businessman for the eSports.
With an investment in the British startup Guild, Beckham, through DB Ventures, became co-owner of the organization, of which he is the second partner for the number of shares owned.
