Romania to Host 2023 World Championship of Esports
Esports enthusiasts will be flocking to Romania for the 2023 World Championship of Esports, which will be held in Iași. The International Esports Federation (IESF) has announced that the 15th edition of the tournament will feature competitions in six different games, including eFootball, Dota 2, Tekken, Mobile Legends, PUBG Mobile, and CS:GO.
One unique feature of the World Championship of Esports is that teams are comprised of players from different nations rather than players belonging to a specific organization. However, many of the teams still have rosters filled with players from the same competitive team.
This year’s event will also see the introduction of a female world championship for CS:GO. The IESF is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in esports and views female teams as a crucial part of the competition. The most valuable female CS:GO player in the world, Ana Dumbravă, hails from the Moldova area, which is near Iași, and is expected to inspire female teams from around the world to participate in the event.
The World Championship of Esports will be held from August 24th to September 4th as part of the Digital Throne exhibition. The IESF is anticipating a turnout of more than 20,000 esports fans during the ten-day event.
Last year’s tournament, which took place in Bali, Indonesia, had a prize pool of $500,000. The prize pool for this year’s tournament will be the same, making it an exciting and lucrative event for participants.
The IESF previously held its world championships in Romania in 2013. That tournament was held in Bucharest and featured competitions in League of Legends, Alliance of Valiant Arms, StarCraft II, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
As esports continue to grow in popularity around the world, the World Championship of Esports is a major event that brings together players from all over the globe to compete for glory and substantial prize money.
