Esports is gaining ground: Olympic Esports Week will be in June 2023

Esports are far from being some insignificant LAN party. Today, it is a huge business in which a lot of money is made and professional players become important celebrities. It even goes so far that the International Olympic Committee will hold the first one in Singapore in June 2023 Olympic Esports Week. Although a similar event took place last year, due to the coronavirus measures, it was a purely virtual event with more than 250,000 participants from 100 countries. Next year, however, the final should be held face-to-face, from June 22 to 25, 2023.

In addition to the broadcast of matches and competitions, the entire event will be complemented by educational events and discussions. According to the President of the IOC, Thomas Bach, the competition week should be an important milestone in the promotion of virtual sports within the Olympic competitions. Among the virtual competitions we should find, for example, baseball matches, cycling, rowing, sailing or motor racing. E.g. last year there was racing in Gran Turismo, baseball was played in eBaseball Powerful Pro, sailing was in Virtual Regatta and the cycling simulator was the Zwift platform. We should know more details about the event early next year.
