The Chairman of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Football Association, Alhaji Adam Mouktar Mohammed has said traditional sports is being threatened by the rising popularity of E-sports in Nigeria.

He stated this while speaking during a one-day seminar organised by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) FCT chapter, recently.

“E-sports is seriously threatening traditional sports as it gained more ground during the lockdown. People were home and they diverted their passion and attention to E-sports and it is booming gradually,” he said.

He further said the use of data (Information gathering) is important in the development of sports while urging sports administrators to invest in data gathering.

“We have made use of data in this country. Data has become more important as the day goes by.  We have seen clubs using data to check players’ strength, weakness and even their abilities. We see them using data to rate the effectiveness of players. They use data to advance the game of sports,” he noted.
