What Is Esports Wales?


Esports Wales is the national body for esports within Wales, and looks after esports in all of its forms and disciplines throughout the nation. This covers the entire scene from the grassroots level all the way up to our national teams. 


We work with our partners and stakeholders across Wales to support our growing network of clubs and their members by providing an affiliation and support structure that aims to ensure there are safe, fun and accessible opportunities for all to participate and succeed in.

  1. We’re all about the thrill of the game! We work with clubs
    and event organisers, to ensure Wales is buzzing with top-notch esports
    competitions and opportunities.
  2. Together with stakeholders, we’re igniting the passion for esports athletics among children and young people, inside and outside the school gates. 
  3. But wait, there’s more! We’re not just about playing esports; we’re revolutionising the game with our tried and tested approach to esports governance, working hand-in-hand with international nation bodies to deliver the excitement in the safest, most engaging, and downright fun way possible!
