IESF Announces Counter-Strike: GO as an Official Game Title for 10th Esports World Championship

International Esports Federation(IESF), the only international membership based non-profit organization, has just announced one of the official game titles to be played in the 10th Esports World Championship 2018 to be held at Kaohsiung City, Chinese Taipei.

Such official game title is the ever popular Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CS: GO) as published by the Valve Corporation.

IESF’s 10th Esports World Championships marks the third time that CS:GO has been selected as an official title for such Esports World Championships. In 2016 (held in Jakarta, Indonesia), Finland became IESF’s first winner of the CS:GO game title. However, in 2017 (held in Busan, Korea), it was Russia that won the 1st place for the CS:GO game title.

IESF’s Esports World Championship is the only international esports event where players compete as representing their countries. IESF has held its World Championship event annually since 2009.
At both Jakarta and Busan, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) sent a team, and at both such events, the team played their best and did South Africa proud.

MSSA shall be holding National Team Trials for the Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CS: GOesports title on 2 and 3 June 2018.

IESF is in the process of selecting other official titles and shall announce them as soon as all negotiations are completed with the relevant stake-holders.
