Gamers8, the world’s biggest gaming and eSports festival, today announced that this year’s edition will see the launch of the Gamers8 Club Awards. An innovative new rewards format that uses a points-based system to award eSports clubs participating across multiple tournaments, the Gamers 8 Club Awards will unlock additional rewards depending on how successful clubs are throughout the eight-week festival.

As part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s ongoing mission to invest in the wider eSports sector, the Gamers8 Club Awards will boost the Kingdom’s effort to expand the realm of opportunities within eSports for all. Breaking down limitations and incentivizing investment, this innovative format will pave the way for unprecedented collaboration between clubs, teams, organizers and publishers.

“This latest announcement illustrates our commitment to realize eSports’ full potential and provide development opportunities for all as the industry’s evolution unfolds,” the Chairman of the Saudi Esports Federation, Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Sultan, said. “As the world’s elite eSports champions return to Gamers8 to battle it out for glory and global supremacy, they do so knowing that this new concept will elevate competition, broaden gamers’ horizons and open up a whole new world of possibilities over the coming years. We are incredibly excited to finally share this exciting news and look forward to trialing this game-changing format in the summer.”

To be eligible for Gamers8 Club Awards, organizations competing at this year’s Gamers8 must participate in at least two competitions. Although some clubs will not be participating in multiple tournaments, the format will provide all eSports clubs around the world with a glimpse into the future, showcasing that the time is now to begin preparing for a new era where teams can reap rewards like never before.

“Gamers8 Club Awards is an incredible opportunity for clubs to look at tournaments from a holistic view rather than an individual team view and play influential roles in the development of their clubs and the global esports sector,” Prince Faisal said. “There is no better stage than the world’s biggest gaming and eSports festival to launch such a format and we can’t wait for July when all the action begins.”

Gamers8 returns on July 6, 2023, under the theme ‘Gamers8: The Land of Heroes’ with a prize pool of over $45 million. Full details of all titles taking place will be announced in due course.

The Club Awards prize ceremony will be held at the end of the eight-week Gamers8 season at the Next World Forum, a gaming forum that will bring together sector leaders and experts from around the world. Available on live stream on both Gamers8 and Next World Forum Twitch and YouTube channels, the ceremony will present the top winning teams and additional awards for individual and team-based categories.

Fans can follow their favorite club’s performance on the Gamers8 channels as well as the tournament streams weekly, where viewers will be updated on all competitions throughout the festival. For further Gamers8 details, including ticket sales, all information is available on the event website.
