04

Two Entities from Same Country

In case of two entities from the same country/regional, WESCO prioritizes entities that already have work in progress, established dialogue with the federal government, and / or recognition or certification issued by the federal government. Secondly, in the evaluation, we will consider work in progress, established dialogue or recognition in the National Olympic Committee.
05

Governmental Recognition Prioritized

Regardless of the dialogues or acknowledgments issued by the National Olympic Committee, consideration will be given to the time of establishment / establishment of the proposing entity, as well as the activities already undertaken, commitment to its internal infrastructure, the electronic sports ecosystem of its country, and their development in the years of its activities presented in various documented actions. If there is already such establishment, infrastructure, among other points, WESCO will recognize the entity thus presented to the detriment of the newer entity, and without actions and activities, that may be recognized by the National Olympic Committee, thus preventing possible favoritism, influence, or abuse of political power, illegal movements and most important: destroying the electronic sports ecosystem already created in the country/region.
06

Two entities of the same country and one Govern Recognition

Regardless of the dialogues or acknowledgments issued by the National Olympic Committee, consideration will be given to the time of establishment / establishment of the proposing entity, as well as the activities already undertaken, commitment to its internal infrastructure, the electronic sports ecosystem of its country, and their development in the years of its activities presented in various documented actions. If there is already such establishment, infrastructure, among other points, WESCO will recognize the entity thus presented to the detriment of the newer entity, and without actions and activities, that may be recognized by the National Olympic Committee, thus preventing possible favoritism, influence, or abuse of political power, illegal movements and most important: destroying the electronic sports ecosystem already created in the country/region.
07

Govern Recognition vs Olympic Committe Recognition

The governmental recognition prevails above the recognition of the National Olympic Committee, because the federal government deals with the people, and should maintain sports policies for the population of that particular country, the maintenance of sport as a social good, in the formation of the citizen, while in our understanding, by greater and more perfect than the values of Olympism are (which we follow, support and use in our actions directly), and of the Olympic Movement, the Olympic Committees are a private entity, just like us and so many others, who nationally manage the interests of that movement, under the umbrella of the International Olympic Committee, also a private non for profit entity, not a national government entity dealing with the interests of the local citizens.
08

Neither Govern nor Olympic

In the absence of such certification, and if there is more than one national entity, we will consider the first to carry out complete documentary proven actions and activities for electronic sport and to have the necessary and/or most complete of the documentation required here.

ONLINE AFFILIATION FORM

The beginning of the recognition and affiliation process at WESCO begins when filling in the online form and submitting it to us. Other steps may be required as well as the requirement for other documents while the tenderer's assessment and documentary assessment are carried out.

AFFILIATION AND ANNUAL FEE FREE!

LACK OF DOCUMENTATION

The need for the proposing entity to submit each of the documents required here is weighted, and this entity may justify the lack of certain documentation for particular reasons inherent to its reality in your country, this will be taken into account at the time of verification, evaluation and documentary verification. However, the most complete the documents sent to WESCO, the faster the evaluation, and the greater the chances of the entity being affiliated, especially if more than one entity per country submits its affiliation requests.

Punctually WESCO will address the membership request acceptance by the regional and continental esports management entities , in a specific way and out of documentation standards presented here as long as these entities are formed by national bodies authorities following the criteria here with the minimum of 3 participants already accepted members at WESCO.

REGION UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF A REGIONAL AND/OR CONTINENTAL GOVERNING BODY

If national entities apply for WESCO membership, and their countries of origin are already covered by WESCO-affiliated regional and / or continental electronic sport management entities, these national entities will also be submitted to these regional / continental entities for membership, this action is required by WESCO and we wil provide a letter of request to be presented to the continental and/or regional governing body under our umbrella. 

LITIGATION ABOUT NATIONAL GOVERNING BODY OF A CONTINENTAL/REGIONAL ENTITY

If a newly formed regional / continental entity already recognizes a different national entity than the WESCO recognized entity and this regional / continental entity wants to become a member of WESCO, the regional / continental entity will be in contact with our nationally recognized entity for dialogue. The affiliation and recognition of this regional / continental entity in WESCO will be impossible until the national recognition situation is regularized.
