Since the halt of various sporting activities, many have looked to esports as the new sporting activity for entertainment.
In the continent of Africa, a regular weekend will see sporting fans prepare for trolling and bragging as their teams play in different European football leagues.
Esports on the continent is gradually gaining attention with more countries hosting friendlies in different game titles in order to create synergy.
This will not be the first time African countries will go head to head in a friendly, but with the stay home directives and lack of sports to watch, Africa should prepare to see more of these games as stakeholders plan to improve the industry during this pandemic period.
On April 11, at 15:00 GMT, West Africa braces up for 2 African giants in football, Senegal and Ivory Coast as they go head to head in a FIFA20 friendly.
The friendly is hosted by esports associations in both countries and proudly supported by Jumia Senegal, who will be streaming the game on their app.
