A message from our chairpersons

Video Games Europe Esports is a group that strives to promote the esports industry for the benefit of all its stakeholders and to provide a cohesive, reliable point of reference for this exciting sector.

Many of the video games played today in esports competitions have been developed and/or published by Video Games Europe members or by members of its national trade associations. With video games publishers, our games and our players at the very heart of esports, we are best-placed to lead the growth and development of this new frontier for the video games industry, to meet its challenges, promote esports, and to provide an authoritative voice on the issues impacting our businesses.

According to Newzoo, global esports revenues are expected to reach $1,598.2M in 2023.

Esports has revolutionised how consumers interact with sports, video games and online streaming platforms and we are committed to working with stakeholders across Europe to grow the potential of esports: for jobs and economic growth and the development of digital skills, to boost the flow of talent into this exciting sector, and to promote a fair, inclusive and diverse esports culture for all.
