Headed by HRH Prince Faisal Bin Bandar Bin Sultan Al Saud as President, the Saudi Arabian Federation of Electronic and Intellectual Sports (SAFEIS), is creating a world class, first of its kind, public/private eSports federation, culture and infrastructure.
GER is partnering with SAFEIS to find the right partners and sponsors and revenue streams as well as develop ongoing local competitions, integrate possible eSport international franchises, develop a Saudi national team, conduct a FIFA tournament in late April, and create a marquee Saudi international tournament in late 2018 with a multi-million dollar prize pool hosted by the Saudi National Team and broadcast live to a worldwide audience.
In addition, the Kingdom plans to build eSport facilities to include Federation Headquarters, a world class eSport Arena with broadcast facilities and a state of the art training facility for the mental and physical training of eSport athletes.
