Portuguese Esports Federation Partners with ESIC


The Portuguese Esports Federation has become a member of the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC). This agreement will guarantee the compliance of the Portuguese Esports Federation with ESIC’s Code of Ethics, as well as of all future competitions to be organized or licensed by the Portuguese Esports Federation with ESIC’s Anti-Corruption Code, Player Code of Conduct and Anti-Doping Code.

Tiago Fernandes, the Portuguese Esports Federation’s President, said that “This is yet another step that we are doing in order to fulfil our mission of developing the Portuguese Esports Ecosystem, in accordance with a proper sports spirit, educational and cultural values and principles of active citizenship.” Tiago Fernandes added that, as the Portuguese Esports Federation is establishing a National Competitive Esports Calendar, in a multitude of different game titles, “this allows our country’s players, coaches, referees and clubs to be assured that they will be participating in competitions that are fair and transparent and where integrity and loyalty are omnipresent, as well as true sportsmanship. This will also reassure the confidence of our commercial partners in investing in said competitions.”

Ian Smith, Commissioner of ESIC, said, “It is such a pleasure to welcome the PESF into ESIC Membership. Their commitment to the development of a vibrant grass roots scene in Portugal with integrity at the heart of it is very encouraging. We look forward to working with the team to embed our Codes into their rules and regulations and supporting them with their education initiatives to ensure the next generation has all the tools it needs to succeed fairly and with sportsmanship.”
