From traditional media to traditional sports clubs, Esport is finally getting the recognition it deserves.
Last, but not least, governments are embracing the movement and build legal and economic frames to structures our booming industry.
Following the steps of South Korea, several countries have pledged to support their local scenes, opening talks with national federations and associations.
France Esport and the French government
Quebec is one of the latest case: The Canadian province of Quebec now considers Esports as skill-based competitions. Until now, they were clasified as “publicity contests”. This victory for the FQSE (the local Esport federation) follows a similar one in France, were France eSports association helped the government separated Esport from luck-based games and is willing to authorize Esports matches on television – they are still considered adds for a video game.
All these progresses in Quebec, France, but also Spain, Great Britain, Russia, Finland or Malta were made possible because of Esport fans, volunteers and professionals pushing the boundaries. We at Toornament are also involved in numerous Esports initiative and we hope you’ll join the movement make yourself and your local Esport community heard by your officials!
