The Saudi Esports Federation is the regulating body in charge of nurturing elite gaming athletes and developing the gaming community and industry in Saudi Arabia.
The Federation’s activities are categorised into two complementary streams. The first stream works to develop all levels of competitive gamers starting with the grassroots community level and moving up to professional esports athletes that can achieve global excellence. The second stream works to develop the entire gaming/esports value chain by catalysing the industry and enabling talent.
Since its establishment in late 2017, the federation has organised multiple world-class national and international tournaments and events attracted investment from local private sector actors, and worked with international developers on opportunities in the Saudi market.
