eGames Group The pinnacle of competitive gaming

THE COMPETITION Take home gold

eGames Group

Launched as part of the London Games Festival, on April 6th 2016, the eGames is an international gaming tournament where national pride is the prize.

Supported by the UK Government, the eGames was created with the aim of positively shaping the future of competitive video gaming (esports).

In line with other globally established sporting events, the eGames will be a medal-only competition, with no prize money, but the opportunity to take home gold for your country.

Each country will have a national squad (eTeam) of gamers (male and female) playing in team and individual games i.e. eTeam Britain, eTeam Canada etc.

Participants will compete for medals: Gold (1st Place), Silver (2nd Place) and Bronze (3rd Place).

An eGames Showcase took place in British House in Rio August 2016 and the first full eGames will be held in 2018 and 16 countries will be invited to compete.

The eGames Group was created to manage the commercial and sponsorship rights on behalf of the International eGames Committee (IEGC).
