The Global Esports Federation (GEF) and Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) are set to collaborate to promote esports throughout the continent.

OCA President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah announced the collaboration. “The OCA looks forward to working with the Global Esports Federation in serving the youth of Asia,” he said.
