It is that time of the year when the International Esports Federation (IESF) hosts its annual World Esports Championship.
This year marks its 14th edition and the event will take place in Bali, Indonesia from December 1 to 12.
IESF took to their social media to announce countries that will be present at the event. Africa will be represented by 16 countries across different titles.
Countries include Algeria, Djibouti, Egypt, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Tunisia, Namibia, Nigeria, Mauritius, Chad, Somalia, Libya, South Africa, and Guinea.
This is the highest representation Africa has ever had not just at the IESF WE Championships but at any global esports stage.
Stakeholders believe it goes to show how Africa has evolved and are hopeful of more growth and opportunities to showcase the talents Africa has.
African esports athletes will compete in titles such as eFootball, Tekken, PUBG, CSGO, Dota 2, and Mobile Legend Bang Bang to stand a chance to claim some cash out of the whooping $500,000 prize pool announced by the IESF earlier in the year.
How battle ready is Africa on the esports international stage? Only time will tell.
