South Africa's Colin Webster (IESF President) presenting to ASSOCIATION OF SPORT PERFORMANCE CENTRES in Barcelona.
International Esports Federation (IESF) was formed in 2008, and in terms of its own Statutes
has never faltered in holding its Ordinary General Meetings on an annual basis. IESF has
always fully subscribed to good governance on every level, and every member national
federation has the opportunity to vote for the person who shall hold the position of president.

All those who have served as president are:

 Mr. Sin Bae Kim (2008 - 2010)
 Mr. Ki Haeng Cho (2010 – 2011)
 Mr. Jun Ho Kim (2011-2012)
 Mr. Hyung Hee Lee (2012 – 2013)
 Mr. Byung Hun Jun (2014 - 2018)
 Mr. Silviu Stroie (Acting President, 2018)
 Mr. Colin Webster (2019)

It should be noted that the President’s term is a three year term. Thus the election held in
2018 was just for a one year period due to the untimely resignation of Mr. Byung Hun Jun in

Thus, December 2019 shall see the election of a new President for IESF, although only one
nomination was received. The incumbent president, Mr. Colin Webster, is unopposed having
received more recommendations from member national federations than any previous

Mr. Colin Webster has served on IESF’s Board since 2013 until 2018 as a Board Member,
and his continued presence on such Board will ensure a great deal of continuity in terms of
IESF pursuing its objectives in having esports welcomed into the sporting fraternity.

In South Africa, Colin Webster served as President of Mind Sports South Africa from 1985 to 2012. In 2012, Colin Webster was voted in as General Secretary, a position he still holds today. In all the years, Colin has been a loyal member of the Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club based at the Old  Edwardian Society.
