Svenska Spel, the state-owned gambling regulator of Sweden, has signed agreement to sponsor Svenska e-sportforeningen (the Swedish Esports Federation or SESF) for the next three years.

“That Svenska Spel becomes the main sponsor of SESF, just as they belong to several other federations, shows that e-sports are normalized as sports,” says Magnus Jonsson, Chairman of SESF.

Svenska Spel has previously sponsored Swedish federations of other sports such as football, ice hockey, indoor bandy, handball and bandy. Being connected to e-sports now depends on seeing opportunities for being able to provide relevant offers to a new audience, it is stated.

Svenska Spel has previously applied to offer e-sport games and will do it again when the new gaming market opens January 1, 2019.

Two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso has stated that Le Mans Esports Series will be a “huge success” and “very attractive” to his sim-racing team. The Spaniard, who won his maiden Le Mans 24 Hours in June, was talking during the Silverstone launch of the unique Forza Motorsport 7 championship.

Registration for the event has started. The qualifying events are already under way.

Gamers can compete from home or from one of three on-site events for the qualifying events.

“The Le Mans Esports Series will be very attractive,” Alonso said.

“The platforms that you have out there are impressive.”

The series encourages the participation of teams, not only pre-established sim racing teams such as Alonso’s FA Racing G2 squad but also groups of friends or new partnerships.

“The Le Mans Esports Series will be very attractive,” Alonso said.

“The platforms that you have out there are impressive.”

“We will enjoy it together.”

Esports has had a meteoric rise in popularity in recent years, and Alonso embraces sim racing as a platform for both real and virtual racing stars.

“Esports is a reality, it’s no longer a fantasy or a game,” Alonso added.

“It’s a platform that works not only for gamers, but for professional drivers too.”

“We have been using simulators for a couple of years now, learning tracks and developing cars.”

“Now, we have a fantastic fanbase outside motor racing, they love what we do, but they do it differently. It’s not better, it’s not worse.”

“It’s a little bit cheaper than the real cars too.”
