Istanbul to Host Second Edition of Global Esports Games in December 2022
Istanbul will host the second edition of Global Esports Games in December 2022.
Last week, Paul J. Foster, CEO of the Global Esports Federation (GEF), led a delegation to Istanbul, Turkey to meet with the Mayor of Istanbul, Ekrem Imamoğlu, as well as leaders from Spor Istanbul, the Turkish Esports Federation, and members of the gaming, esports, education, business and cultural community. The delegations discussed preparatory work, visited venue options and explored the limitless opportunities for esports in the country.
“For years it has been said that Istanbul stands at the crossroads between Asia and Europe, but it also stands at the very heart of a thriving inclusive youth culture. You literally feel the energy vibrate from within this breathtaking city presenting great opportunities to showcase the future of esports, as we continue to expand our #worldconnected community. With a month until the inaugural Singapore 2021 Global Esports Games, we have already started our detailed work with our partners in Turkey. We are proud to welcome Istanbul as host city for the Global Esports Games 2022 as we convene the world’s athletes and players here in a little over a year,” Paul J. Foster, CEO of the GEF, said.
