The eGames

The first international gaming (eSports) tournament in which participants are representing their country is due to take place during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. These inaugural eGames will take the form of a two-day pop up event during the Olympic Games, at British House, Parque Lage, Rio, Brazil. It is planned to then hold this event every two years. The next event is planned to be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018.

The tournament is being organized by The International eGames Committee (IEGC), which is fully independent and is not associated with the IOC or the Olympic Games.
