The “Gamers without Borders” tournament, which is organized in cooperation with the technical partner ESL, includes two levels; in the first one, fans of electronic games compete through six worldwide tournaments per week in various games, while the most prominent amateur players who provide the best results will compete, in the second one, with the world’s best players.

The players will compete individually, bilaterally and collectively in various popular games.

The total prize amount for the world elite will be USD10 million where the winners will choose the charity they want to donate among 12 international charity organizations that fight against the global epidemic.
