From November 16th, the International Esports Federation (IESF) World Championship Finals will begin with a four-day event. This event will conclude this year’s World Championship after regional competitions have determined the finalists.

This year, for the very first time, an athlete from Luxembourg has qualified for the offline final event of the World Championship. Daniel “Diffside45” Araujo, who is part of the FLF and IESF national squad, was selected to represent Luxembourg in the regional qualifiers. After victories against Portugal and Sweden among others, Daniel managed to make the impossible come true and qualified for the finals. More than 80 nations took part in the regional qualifiers.

The goal is to qualify for the playoffs via the group phase and later for the grand finale, which will take place on Thursday.

The LESF is an internationally recognized non-profit association (association sans but lucratif) founded in June 2020 with the aim to promote esports as well as to federate esports stakeholders and represent their collective interests in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

One of the missions of the LESF is the official recognition of esports in Luxembourg as a sport in its own right next to traditional sports. The LESF does not pursue the idea to establish esports as a competitor or even rival to traditional sports, but intends to bring esports and traditional sports disciplines closer together irrespective of their analog or digital nature.

British Esports has announced its plans to increase investment in the state-of-the-art National Esports Performance Campus (NEPC), the UK’s most advanced esports and education performance and training centre.

To complement the globally-recognised esports facilities, capable of attracting and developing the UK’s very best esports and creative talent, British Esports has announced it has now acquired a multi-purpose entertainment venue, as well as brand new esports and gaming accommodation.

Combined with the multi-functional sporting, creative and educational facility, the National Esports Performance Campus, now a multi-site venue, represents a multi-million-pound investment in the city of Sunderland and takes the total footprint to over 30,000 sq.ft.

Located within easy reach of the NEPC, the hub and the Grade II listed townhouses are situated in a conservation area, first established in the 17th century. Split over four floors and currently undergoing extensive renovation and internal refurbishment to restore them to separate residential dwellings, the esports and gaming houses are scheduled to open in late Spring 2023.

Providing accommodation for up to 25 people, the fully self-contained properties will feature separate living and leisure areas, plus a cutting edge digital performance and gaming room, kitted out with the very latest in gaming and creative technology.

Designed to stimulate team and player performance as well as a healthy, balanced lifestyle, the fully managed accommodation alongside the National Esports Performance Campus will seek to deliver greater success on the international esports stage.

The National Esports Performance Campus, scheduled to open in late 2023, is an 11,000 sq.ft esports training and educational complex, split across two floors, featuring state-of-the art creative, educational, coaching and training facilities, with provision for over 150 students.

The venue will feature the very latest in digital and computing technology, a 100 seater esports arena, dedicated esports stage, classrooms, performance and training rooms, broadcast and content production facilities, sim racing and much more.

As a founding member of the Global Esports Federation, British Esports will be the first amongst its 120 members to have its own dedicated esports campus, ensuring that the UK is continuing to lead the development of esports education, infrastructure and opportunity.

“We are proud to be making a significant investment in Sunderland and the North East with a new multi-site venue capable of attracting and developing the digital forward society of tomorrow. We are excited to be developing infrastructure for the UK esports ecosystem, but, as part of the UK’s national levelling up campaign, we are equally thrilled that the people of the North East will have an incredible facility on their doorstep,” said Andy Payne OBE, Chair, British Esports.

“Sunderland is a hugely ambitious city, and one that fully embraces the transformative power of digital to bring communities together, so it is fitting that a sport that is built on digital and technology is investing so significantly here. British Esports’ investment in Riverside Sunderland with its Performance Campus and in Sunniside with the gaming accommodation, fits perfectly with our regeneration programme, which is transforming both of these parts of the city centre, and we’re delighted to be working closely with them to support them with their plans,” said Councillor Graeme Miller, leader of Sunderland City Council.
