James Draper, Bidstack CEO, spoke to WARC about how in-game advertising brings the scale of mass-media exposure without ruining playing experiences.
In the last 12 months, the popularity of esports has gone through the roof with viewing figures now surpassing both F1 and the 2019 Superbowl. With this continual rise, we are seeing advertisers starting to dip their toes into the world of esports and gaming by finding more creative and innovative ways to reach their audience. Just recently we have seen Honda become the exclusive automotive partner for the League of Legends Championship series and Nike signing a multi-year deal with FURIA esports in moves designed to future proof their media strategies.

Standard display banners, in-feed ads and pre-roll are impactful, but do have some drawbacks. There are issues around brand safety, low viewability, rising audience distraction, an increased use of ad blockers and disruptive ad formats.
