Growing support for the development of esports and gaming in Wales, from amateur grassroots tournaments to the professional careers.
Global Competition. Olympic Recognition.
Esports Wales was formed in 2018 as a response to the growing popularity of esports in Wales and around the world. The organisation’s primary goal is to support the development of esports at all levels, from grassroots to professional. Since its inception, Esports Wales has been instrumental in raising esports awareness through a variety of tournaments and events that engage the local community.
Esports Wales has also established itself as the national esports body for Wales, managing the Welsh Esports Team in various international competitions. By providing a platform for players to showcase their skills and compete at the highest level, Esports Wales has helped to elevate the profile of esports in Wales as a legitimate sport.
“One of our goals is to get Wales into as many national competitions as we can. We want to show that Wales can compete on the international stage.”
