Players who aim to be selected by the USEF.GG must meet certain requirements in-line with the International Esports Federation and Global Esports Federation. These players must be at least 18 years old and a US citizen or permanent US resident with a passport. The announcement also stated that players must also comply with anti-doping rules.

If a player meets all these requirements their application will then be reviewed by the USEF.GG Player Selection Committee which will assess candidates based on four criteria; a show match, a series of ‘Combine Trials’, nominations from others, and the player’s competition history.

Players who make it through these trials will have the opportunity to qualify for events such as the Pan-Am Games, the IESF World Championship and the GEF Global Esports Tour.

The Player Development Specialist at USEF.GG, Bethany Pyles, commented on the announcement: “Through targeted coaching, we will refine players’ techniques and fortify their mental resilience, strategic adaptability, and collaborative synergy.

“Our players’ journey beyond the game will improve confidence, enhance career opportunities, and forge lifelong relationships with fellow competitors and industry leaders. USEF.GG’s dedication to player development is embodied by our mission to instil players with a championship mindset as we proudly showcase the best of US esports talent to the world.”

The applications to represent the USEF.GG are currently open and it has not been announced when they close. The United States will be looking to improve on its last outing in the IESF World Championship 2023 as the country only recorded one podium finish, a bronze medal in the CS:GO female event.
