        As esports continues its fast-paced growth as a global entertainment phenomenon, so too do the legal issues in play. Our Sydney-based Director, Mat Jessep is a leading esports lawyer, strategic consultant, and speaker on this sector, is presenting in our Sydney office in partnership with the Australia & New Zealand Sports Law Association (ANZSLA).

        Attendees familiar with the esports sector will leave with a greater understanding of the recent development in relation to leagues and the commercial opportunities available.

        Attendees who are perhaps not so familiar with the esports sector will gain an understanding of the sector more broadly as well as the ways it mirrors developments in traditional sports, by way of one comparison.

        Wednesday 19 September - 6pm

        • Introduction to esports.
        • Recent developments in leagues and tournaments.
        • A panel discussion on the experience of planning, promoting, and running new leagues in Australia and future opportunities.

        • Luke Bould, Chief Commercial Officer and Chief Marketing Officer, Football Federation Australia
