Capping an historic announcement, the Global Esports Federation welcomes Japan-based publishers – Capcom Co., Ltd., Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. and Sega Group Corporation – as new Members of the GEF and as trailblazers of the recently announced Publishers and Developers Advisory Council (PDAC).

“Nine months ago, the Global Esports Federation was established with a collective ambition to convene the world’s esports community. Our mission is to bring together the diverse stakeholders on one, global, inclusive platform,” said Chris Chan, President, Global Esports Federation. “As we have grown, we have continued to listen and adapt. We acknowledge the fundamental importance of the world’s publishers and developers, and welcome Capcom, Konami and Sega as members of the GEF and the PDAC.
