E-Sport recognized in Geneva
This recognition by the AGS is an entry point to discuss the inclusion of digital technology and electronic sports in the Genevan Society, for example for the creation of courses, of E-sports centres, leagues, or sport-studies programmes.
The City of Geneva, a pioneer in this domain, is taking on this project without any hesitation. The Department of Youth has already supported Geneva E-Sport in 2016, and today the Sports Service is planning to work together with Geneva E-Sport to integrate E-Sport into their sport schools.
The Sports service also provided its support during the organization of the First Forum of Electronic Sports of Geneva, which welcomed 5 speakers and hundreds of auditors last Saturday, the 13th of May.
Finally, last Sunday, the 14th of May, during the Extraordinary General Meeting of Geneva E-Sport, 4 new members joined us: The E-Sport division of Servette FC (Servette Geneva E-Sports), Virtual Star Sailors League, FireGoldSharks, and Mulligan. With now 12 members and 2 other structures wishing to join us, the E-sport Genevan scene is united under a single banner!
