Yes, you read it right. The Chinese government is taking eSports rather seriously these days, and the official eSports Association of Wuxi will be holding referee classes starting this month.
The training fees will cost 350 Chinese Yuan, around 57 USD, with official certification and physical documents as proof. With thousands of worldwide and local eSports tournaments being held in China every year, this could be another step up for the industry.
Of course, if you missed the Forbes article, League of Legends and Starcraft II could be part of Olympic sports as early as the 2020 Summer Games.
