The eagle has landed.

Vlad Marinescu - Pesident of the United States of America eSports Federation (left) shakes hands with Colin Webster - President of the International Esports Federation (right).
It has long been held by a number of sporting codes that unless China, Russia, and the United States actively participates at World Championship level, then the sport, despite all its accreditation, is not a real sport.

Both Russia and China have been members of International Esports Federation (IESF) for a number of years, and ensured the upward improvement of standards from year-to-year.

However, at last, the USA has made an entry.

Without the bling and fanfare, for which the USA is famous, the United States of America eSports Federation was accepted into membership at IESF's Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) which was held on 10 November 2018 at Kaohsuing City.

The president of the United States of America eSports Federation is none other that Vlad Marinescu.

Vlad is a past Secretary General of GAISF and is absolutely committed to the growth of esports at every level, and has the belief that esports has  the ability to be a real game-changer in the years to come.

There is no doubt, that with the United States eSports Federation now a  member of IESF, the stakes have been raised.
