One year ago, six esports organizations assembled at Kenyatta University to compete in a premier FIFA esports competition run and organized by Ace Pro Gaming.
The competition opened up arguably a hot topic in the FIFA community in Kenya. The e-Lig series enabled the growth and development of Esports teams helping the sports franchise develop much deeper in the esports ecosystem in Kenya.
Arguably the biggest game in Kenya, FIFA boasts of a huge following accounting to 95% of the game played in every game lounge located in Nairobi. The FIFA competitive market has also seen a huge jump in numbers of entries as casual gamers continue to transition from the day to day casuals to going up against competitors.
The e-Lig saw players get tournament experiences and new competition from players who they do not face regularly.
The e-Lig series was set to kick off this year after the 2019 trial dubbed Season Zero but was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The series is set to have its online division kick off this month as we commence on building our local FIFA scene.
With the Tekken 7 Savanna Fight Night (SFN) ongoing, the FIFA competition will bring our roster of competitions to two with plans to add the Mortal Kombat community into our online division.
We look forward to having a great competition of FIFA while engaging Kenya’s biggest esports community.
