The Esports Forum at IOC

IOC AND GAISF TO HOST ESPORTS FORUM

THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) AND THE GLOBAL ASSOCIATION OF INTERNATIONAL SPORTS FEDERATIONS (GAISF) HAVE ANNOUNCED THE ORGANISATIONS WILL HOST AN “ESPORTS FORUM” ON 21 JULY AT THE OLYMPIC MUSEUM IN LAUSANNE.

The aim of the Forum is to explore synergies, build joint understanding and set a platform for future engagement between the esports and gaming industries and the Olympic Movement.

Invited participants will include representatives from across the esports and gaming ecosystem: players, publishers, teams, media, sponsors and event organisers; and from across the Olympic Movement: National Olympic Committees, International Sports Federations, athletes and the IOC.

GAISF President Patrick Baumann said: "Along with the IOC, the GAISF looks forward to welcoming the esports and gaming community to Lausanne. We understand that sport never stands still and the phenomenal growth of esports and gaming is part of its continuing evolution. The Esports Forum provides an important and extremely valuable opportunity for us to gain a deeper understanding of esports, their impact and likely future development, so that we can jointly consider the ways in which we may collaborate to the mutual benefit of all of sport in the years ahead."

IOC Sports Director Kit McConnell said: “We are pleased to be hosting our first “Esports Forum”, which is a great opportunity for both the Olympic Movement and representatives from the world of esports and gaming to begin a discussion, listen and learn from each other, and understand the potential opportunities for collaboration. The IOC and GAISF are closely following the rapid development of esports globally, and we look forward to a really engaging discussion.”

The Forum follows the Olympic Summit held in October 2017, which asked the IOC, together with the GAISF, to explore this area in a dialogue with the gaming industry and players and to come back to the Olympic Movement stakeholders in due course.
