The International Esports Federation (IESF) and Esports BAR are pleased to announce a partnership that will help accelerate the development of professional Esports around the world.
The Global Esports Federation announces the appointment of Sports Innovation Lab as Global Supporter, aimed at further enhancing the GEF’s mission to promote the credibility, legitimacy and prestige of esports. Through this global partnership, Sports Innovation Lab will develop the GEF’s global events portfolio, including the landmark GEFcon – the Global Esports Federation’s convention, thought-leadership and dialogue platform.
The Global Esports Federation welcomes International Federations – World Karate Federation, Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (World Pentathlon), and International Canoe Federation – as members. The GEF has now confirmed eight International Federations – more than 70 Member Federations – sharing the collective mission to bridge the connection between sport, esports and virtual sport – powered by innovative technology.
The year 2020 has been a roller-coaster of ups and downs for everyone globally but it did not stop the AESF from continuing its efforts in growing the Esports scene. In spite of limitations imposed on international traveling, restrictions on ground events as well as significant slow-down of the economy in general, Esports have been one of the few industries which responded the quickest and in the most effective manner.
