International Esports Federation (IESF) announced on Friday, 26 June 2020 plans to launch the World Super League (WSL), which will be run alongside its annual Esports World Championship.

IESF has entered into an MOU with Technoblood Inc. to host and operate WSL to ensure the success of WSL,in which Technoblood will take responsibility for hosting and operating WSL in coordination with the Member Nations of IESF.

Technoblood has been closely associated with Esports since its earliest days and has been a pioneer in managing Esport events, starting with its hosting of World Cyber Games (WCG) in 2002. IESF chose Technoblood as its partner for its expertise and experience in hosting and managing Esports events for 20 years.

IESF will promote and provide support for WSL by its national Esports member federations. 

The newly launched WSL will host its first international competition in 2021 and expects active participation by national federations as well as Esports enthusiasts around the world.

WSL will be the tournament and festival where all the best Esports players in the world gather to compete.

WSL is aiming to be one of the biggest tournaments in the world providing the stage for exciting competitions among the top Esports players in the world. 

Each participating country will select the most popular titles in each country and host national leagues for each event throughout the year. Once a year, players representing their own nations with the best results in each event will gather to WSL where the finals will be held.

The representatives from each country will meet once a year to participate in a battle of national teams to determine the top global team for each event.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) was there at  the first IESF World Championship in 2009, and as the only member of IESF that has sent a team to participate in every single title that has been held at all such IESF World Championships, intends to participate to the full.

Amanda Pakade, MSSA President, stated, "The 
World Super League is just another example of how IESF is growing from year-to-year and providing for its member federations."

International Esports Federation (IESF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 that consistently works to promote Esports as a true sport beyond barriers. IESF is composed of more than 70 member national federations across all continents, organizes annual World Championships and strives to ensure the synergy between stakeholders. IESF is a WADA Signatory since 2013. Key IESF activities include the IESF World Championships, the IESF General Assembly uniting all National Federations and the Global Esports Executive Summits.
