Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Global Esports Federation Board has unveiled the first three host cities for its premier flagship event: Singapore 2021, Istanbul 2022 and Riyadh 2023.

The Global Esports Games (GEG), held each year in December, will convene the world in a celebration of esports, virtual sport, music and entertainment. The GEG will feature teams from across the world participating in multi-title esports competitions and active esports.

In parallel, GEFcon, a global convention of thought leaders, and the GEFestival, a dynamic celebration of inclusive esports culture highlighting music, art, technology, fashion, food and much more, promise to add to the diverse, immersive and world-class programme.

“The Global Esports Games has drawn overwhelming interest. We have undergone a rigorous selection process. Now the work and creativity truly begin as we set the stage for the world’s esports athletes and players to shine,” Chris Chan, President of Global Esports Federation, said.

“The first Global Esports Games to be held in December this year will provide the opportunity to showcase esports to the world. We are grateful to have the opportunity to host this truly historic event,” Ng Chong Geng, President of Singapore Esports Association (SGEA), said.

Co-Chairs of the Coordination Commission for the Global Esports Games, Angela Ruggiero and Luzeng Song, noted that appointing the right host cities is a key to success.

“We will lend our support and guidance so the host cities can unleash their full potential and so the incredible untold stories of the power of esports – and sport as the future of entertainment – can be unlocked, too,” Ruggiero said.

Paul J. Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Global Esports Federation, said the energy, skill and passion of esports, and the technologies that drive it, are captured in the GEF motto: #worldconnected. Carrying that forward to the Global Esports Games, he said, “We have listened to the athletes and players, the incredible publishers and developers, and the wider community to create a platform for athletes to shine, representing countries and territories as in other prestigious multi-sport competitions.”

Team Vitality, in partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the global esports, sports and entertainment industries, have announced they will launch a Fan Token on fan engagement and rewards app Socios.com.

The $VIT Fan Token will launch on July 1st, providing a powerful new way for the team to boost its brand on a global scale and for fans all around the world to engage with and influence the organisation. The lifetime supply of $VIT Fan Tokens will be 7 million and they will be priced at €2 each during the initial sale.

Fan Tokens are collectible digital assets, minted on the Chiliz blockchain, that provide owners with access to voting rights in polls, VIP rewards, exclusive promotions, AR-enabled features, chat forums, games and competitions on Socios.com.

Since its inception in 2013, Team Vitality has grown into one of the biggest esports organisations in the world and home to some of the industry’s best esports players who compete in the biggest global esports titles. Over the last six months, Team Vitality has continued to build upon its esports legacy, most recently announcing its expansion into Brazil with the signing of Hugo “Dioud” Padioleau as its first official ambassador, and the reveal of its new League of Legends rosters.

Team Vitality will use Fan Tokens to empower their fanbase with a selection of unique and exciting rewards. Fans who purchase $VIT Fan Tokens will have access to exclusive content, activations around Team Vitality players, shop vouchers and also have the opportunity to attend events as special guests.

Fan Tokens have generated over $150M in revenues to be shared with Socios.com partners in 2021 alone.

Socios.com has multiple office locations around the world and has recently opened new regional headquarters in Madrid, Istanbul, São Paulo and Buenos Aires. The company will also open a new office in North America in the near future.

“At Team Vitality we’re lucky to have some of the most creative and engaged fans in esports, and we’re always looking for ways to collaborate more closely, and offer them new experiences. Socios.com has a track record of providing an innovative Fan Token platform for some huge sports and esports brands, and we’re proud to partner with them. Our first poll is a very exciting one which we’ll be announcing in the coming days and I can’t wait to see how our fans vote,” said, Nicolas Maurer, CEO, Team Vitality 

Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios.com, said:. “Team Vitality is France’s number one esports organization. They are already an absolute powerhouse of the esports world, but with the launch of the $VIT Fan Token they will be able to expand their reach exponentially,  growing their unique, exciting brand on a global scale.

“Vitality have really grasped what Fan Tokens are all about and fans can look forward to some groundbreaking, unprecedented engagement opportunities on the Socios.com app – as well as some really cool rewards too from the moment the Fan Token launches in just a few weeks time on July 1st.

“We now have 5 major esports organizations on our roster, which is definitely a milestone for us, but there is still immense potential for growth in this space, both in terms of activity with our existing partners and new partnerships.”
