The inaugural Global Esports Games (GEG) in Singapore will be supported by a slate of partners that includes Singapore Airlines, MyRepublic, Samsung and Razer, signalling the strong backing that the event has received from organizations across the APAC region.
GEG, the flagship event of the Global Esports Federation (GEF), is a global, multi-title competition. The inaugural edition features Dota 2, eFootball 2022, and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition with teams from more than 40 countries and territories around the world competing. The event runs from 18 to 19 December at Resorts World Sentosa.
This is Singapore Airlines’ first esports partnership, and the national carrier will be the GEG’s Official Airline Partner. The GEG’s other official partners in their respective areas are MyRepublic (Telco), Samsung Neo QLED (Technology), Razer (Esports), and Lazada (Ecommerce). Joining them are community partners TikTok and GosuGamers, and venue partner Resorts World Sentosa.
In a tangible demonstration of its deep commitment to the esports community, Flare Networks, GEF’s Global Partner for Blockchain systems, is making a grant of their Songbird Tokens ($SGB) to every athlete and team heading to Singapore and helping the global broadcast reach the entire world.
Chris Chan, President, Global Esports Federation said: “We are thrilled by the support from world-class brands for the first-ever Global Esports Games. We are now in the final phase of preparations for the GEG. The entire team remains focused on staging a prestigious international competition as planned despite the challenging circumstances. We are grateful to our partners for their commitment to sharing and supporting our #worldconnected vision.”
GEFcon, the GEF’s international convention of esports thought leaders, will take place on 16 December 2021, as well as GEFestival, a three-week celebration of esports culture that unites art, music, and technology to the broader gaming community across the world.
