( Fantasy Sports Wire) - Two of the biggest names in eSports Fantasy Sports – Vulcun and AlphaDraft – have now confirmed they will be speaking at next month’s Daily Fantasy Sports Expo (DFSE) in Miami Beach (August 6-7).

The news comes as CBS Fantasy Sports has confirmed it is sending six representatives from their company to attend DFSE, including Jeffrey Koors, Head of Project Management for Fantasy Products, who will be speaking.   

“The registrations are really starting to pick up now but I want to urge folks to buy as soon as possible as late registration fees will advise,” DFSE Organizer Marc Lesnick tells  "All serious players will be attending this event," he added.

Vulcan and AlphaDraft own almost the entire Fantasy eSports market with eSports (competitive video gaming) expected to eclipse the NFL in terms of overall fan base by the end of next year.
