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 categorized 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 catalyzing the industry and enabling talent.
Since its establishment in late 2017, the federation has organized 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.
The story of this Federation started long before its inception. The world of esports is no stranger to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia or its people. It has often brought us together with our loved ones and immortalized an essential chapter of our collective memory. The Kingdom’s youth have always been important players in esports globally and have competed and achieved at global levels. This highlights an important pillar of lifestyle in the Kingdom that we aspire to harness and invest in.
This Federation was not created out of nothing. The infrastructure for creating a vibrant environment for esports has long been laid out by our youth with their love and passion for gaming. This makes our role as a Federation more vital in directing our energies into building an integrated ecosystem that cements esports as a professional practice with economic feasibility and making the Kingdom a regional and global hub for electronic sports.
Our aspirations have been affirmed by the level of engagement we have seen in the events and tournaments SAFEIS organized. Tens of thousands of passionate fans and gamers have come together in this short period to reaffirm the importance of working collectively in achieving our vision and goals in harmony with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. By carrying this early momentum and investing in it, we are building a sustainable and inclusive esports scene that delights gamers of all kinds.
We are a small part of a rapidly growing esports community driven by ambition for excellence. Our motivation is our vision, and our driver is every lover of esports.
We have formed alliances with leading partners in the gaming industry to provide you with innovative solutions to the complex problems to heal and help make the world a better place.
