PRESIDENT WORDS

HRH PRINCE FAISAL BIN BANDAR AL SAUD

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 in the Kingdom’s lifestyle 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.

ACADEMY

The Saudi Esports Academy (SEA) is the e-learning platform hosted by the Saudi Esports Federation. The academy provides gaming enthusiasts with the opportunity of both improving their skills, and bringing them closer to some of the main professional and global esports experiences. In addition, it offers a 360-degree-knowledge of all management areas related to electronic games. The SEA includes an integrated team composed of international professional players, coaches, as well as many sector experts, who will help students reach their goals in the esports industry.

The Saudi Esports Federation was founded in 2017 to nurture and develop the gaming community, as well as its industry, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Its main goal was creating an environment that helps develop elite esports players in the KSA who could compete in world tournaments. From then on, the Saudi Esports Federation has organized several national and international esports competitions with a global reach, such as Players Without Borders, and His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman Electronic League Fans Cup, attracting huge investments locally and globally.
