Now the IESF has welcomed eight new member nations from different continents on 10September.Many potential members are applying to IESF, strengthening the “unity mission that we have started”, says IESF Board Member and Secretariat Director Boban Totovski.
Deputy Minister for Digital Transformation, Oleksandr Borniakov commented that “This is a historic moment for our country. After all, esports has long ceased to be just about ‘shooters,’ but a fundamental element of modern digital culture. About 600 million people admire it, including millions of Ukrainians. Besides, Ukraine has a high culture of esports, as well as strong players. Our teams regularly win various tournaments around the world. The industry has long turned into a real business that brings many benefits and opportunities, both locally and globally.”
