Cat Can't Scratch It

Riot Games has been working on getting recognized status for professional gamers for some time and now the US State Department has recognized the League of Legends Championship Series as a professional sport. This new classification will make it simple and easy for foreign gamers to obtain Visas for US tournaments.
The new recognition of LCS applies to the eight professional teams operating in the United States, and is not applicable to other eSports leagues, though they can now apply to be added to the list of recognized leagues.
