The International Esports Federation (IESF) announces plans to launch World Super League (WSL), which will be one of the big Esports tournaments alongside its annual Esports World Championship.
IESF has entered into an MOU with Technoblood Inc. to host and operate WSL
IESF has joined hands with Technoblood to ensure the success of WSL, signing a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) on June 2020 under which Technoblood will take responsibility for hosting and operating WSL in coordination with Member Nations of IESF.
IESF will promote and provide support for WSL by its national Esports member Federations. Technoblood has been closely associated with Esports since its earliest days and has been a pioneer in managing Esport events, starting with its hosting of World Cyber Games (WCG) in 2002. IESF chose Technoblood as its partner for its expertise and experience in hosting and managing Esports events for 20 years.
The newly launched WSL will host its first international competition in 2021 and expects active participation by national federations as well as Esports enthusiasts around the world.
WSL will be the tournament and festival where all the best Esports players in the world gather to compete
WSL is aiming to be one of the biggest tournaments in the world providing the stage for exciting competitions among the top Esports players in the world.
Each participating country will select the most popular titles in each country and host national leagues for each event throughout the year. Once a year, players representing their own nations with the best results in each event will gather to WSL where the finals will be held.
WSL will select the most popular Esports events among member countries and hold a national competition to pick the best players to represent each member nation. The representatives from each country will meet once a year to participate in a battle of national teams to determine the top global team for each event.
International Esports Federation (IESF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 that consistently works to promote Esports as a true sport beyond barriers. IESF is composed of more than 60 member national federations across all continents, organizes annual World Championships and strives to ensure the synergy between stakeholders. IESF is a WADA Signatory since 2013. Key IESF activities include the IESF World Championships, the IESF General Assembly uniting all National Federations and the Global Esports Executive Summits.
In recognition of the growing worldwide popularity of Esports, IESF decided to launch WSL in order to form closer links with national Esports competitions.
