The purpose of this article is to add to the conceptual discussion on eSport, analyze the role of\ud eSport within sport management, and suggest avenues for future eSport research. The authors\ud suggest that debates surround the degree to which eSport represents formal sport, and\ud disagreements likely stem from conceptualizations of sport and context. Irrespective of one’s\ud notion of eSport as formal sport, the authors suggest the topic has a place in sport management\ud scholarship and discourse. Such a position is consistent with the broad view of sport adopted by\ud Sport Management Review, the perspective that eSport represents a form of sportification, and\ud the association among eSport and various outcomes, including physical and psychological\ud health, social well-being, sport consumption outcomes, and diversity and inclusion. Finally, the\ud authors conclude that eSport scholarship can advance through the study of its governance,\ud marketing, and management as well as by theorizing about eSport
