Global Esports Games 2023

Global Esports Games 2023, the flagship event organized by the Global Esports Federation, has made a comeback taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. With 950 athletes representing over 100 nations and territories, competing at the highest echelons, the Saudi Esports Federation (SEF) is serving as the host, and the Global Esports Federation (GEF) is overseeing the presentation of the Global Esports Games 2023.

GEG23 operates like the Olympics for esports, with players representing their countries instead of clubs or organizations. They will be facing off against players from other nations, striving not only for personal victory but to bring glory to their entire nation.

Although the event began with preliminary stages involving multiple qualifiers across various game titles, attracting 1,165 players from 104 countries, only around 250 participants managed to secure a spot in the final stage, hailing from 56 different nations.
