The International Esports Federation (IESF) has announced an agreement with White Lite LLC which aims to see more esports tournaments hosted in Latin America.

White Lite LLC is dedicated to the production of live events in Latin America.

The new partnership will include the creation of an IESF LATAM (Latin America) Open Esports Championships, which it is hoped will strengthen the global appeal of esports.

From 2022, the region will host more than five esports championships.

The Championship finals begin with an online pre-qualification stage, before the top 10 players from each country travel to play the in-person finals.

The IESF’s secretary general Boban Totovski believes it will aid the organisation’s efforts to promote esports.

“We are very grateful for the opportunities this new partnership with White Lite will create for esports athletes, officials and fans in the Latin America region,” said Totovski.

“IESF will invest more resources towards developing esports in the region as part of IESF’s commitment to unifying and strengthening the world esports family and supporting our 106 member federations.”

Similar sentiments were echoed by Ido Brosh, board member and director of global programmes at the IESF, who was similarly optimistic for the partnership.

“As the IESF family continues to grow, we’re thrilled to see more esports athletes recognise the tremendous benefits that come with professional esports competitions,” Brosh commented.

“This partnership with White Lite is another step in the IESF’s journey to develop gaming worldwide and provides the ultimate environment for athletes to perform at their best.”

Javier Goicoechea, manager of White Lite LLC, added: “White Lite is extremely excited and committed to delivering a major esports event for the Latin America region through our partnership with IESF.

“At White Lite, we are passionate about the events business and collaborating with IESF’s expertise and fast-growing network of member federations.

“I see this as a win-win for the esports ecosystem in the Latin America region.

“Our ultimate endeavour is to support Latin American athletes by offering them the highest quality of Esports events.”

The IESF was founded in 2008 and is one of two organisations claiming to be esports’ international governing body.
