OpTic Gaming Manager Says Average NA LCS Salary Is $320,000

We’ve all wondered what eSport stars earn in an average year and while we don’t know the exact amounts as it varies between players, we do have some insight. In an interview with LiquidLegends, OpTic Gaming manager Bigeard revealed this year the average salary for NA LCS players is over $320,000.

In a survey done by ESPN last year the average salary for NA LCS players was $105,000, but Bigeard said the number was close to $150,000. This would indicate that that salaries have doubled within the past year.

Bigeard says this is in part due to franchising and believes that salaries could go higher. Bigeard stated..

“I believe franchising was a key step for the overall NA LCS growth. The amount of cash invested by organizations into their infrastructure greatly increased. It is becoming a full industry, with long-term sponsorship deals happening and a lot of visibility on the line.”
