The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has agreed to an exploratory partnership with the Global Esports Federation (GEF) that aims to develop a Commonwealth Esports strategy.
The partnership will see the CGF and GEF work together on specific areas aligned to Transformation 2022 – the Commonwealth Sport Movement’s Strategic Plan.
Partnership Focus Points
- Conducting an analysis of the status of Esports in the Commonwealth and its capacity to support and advance our vision and mission through the joint development of a values-based Commonwealth Esports strategy;
- Exploring and developing athlete-centred, sport-focused initiatives and campaigns that harness and elevate the principles of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, Integrity and Innovation, among others, in Esports across the Commonwealth; and
- Exploring the development of sustainable Esports properties (competitions and development initiatives) that could benefit CGAs and the wider Commonwealth through partnerships and promotional opportunities that connect and serve athletes, citizens and communities.
