Although it s close to being sold for a pittance, Yahoo isn t dead yet.

The company has been busying itself building shiny new apps, including a revamped Mail client for Android and a new esports news reader.

Available for iOS from today, Yahoo Esports delivers live tournament broadcast coverage, news, highlights, and league scores for major competitive games from various genres: League of Legends , Dota 2 , Counter-Strike: GO , Heroes of the Storm and Street Fighter V .

The app features a card-based interface that s easy to browse, and lets you leave comments on news stories.

According to research firm Newzoo, the market is set to grow to $463 million this year and hit $1.1 billion by 2019.

But Yahoo will certainly have its work cut out for it: earlier this year, ESPN launched a dedicated esports section on its site to cover League of Legends , Dota 2 and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft .
