AWARDING THE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THE ESPORTS INDUSTRY

ABOUT

 

The second iteration of the Esports Insider Hall of Fame which we created to recognise and award those individuals who have built, moulded and continue to shape the esports industry.

 

In 2018, the awards evening itself took place at the Natural History Museum in the heart of London. In partnership with Ginx Esports TV we inaugurated the very first three ESI HoF inductees, and followed this up with a party in the main hall until the early hours of the morning.

 

The ESI Hall of Fame is an ongoing and long-term project, with new members added each year. As esports is a global and borderless industry, we have brought it across the pond to the USA for 2019.

 

Taking place during E3 in Los Angeles at Nixon Peabody, we will award the class of 2019 and celebrate the next three inductees’ entrance in style with an evening of drinks, fine food and even finer company all whilst overlooking the city of angels.

LONG TERM GOALS

1 This will be Year Two of the ESI Hall of Fame, but we view this very much as a long term project. We will add 3 new members each year.
2 We will host an awards evening each year to present and commemorate the new members and tell their stories, and of course have a party to celebrate…
3 We will create in-depth video and editorial content for each member, made available to all, with the purpose being to showcase what they have done for the esports industry, and moreover to show how far it has come.
4 Long term we want this to be somewhere anybody and everybody can go to find out the true ‘titans of the industry’ and get a better understanding of the evolution of the industry from its humble beginnings.

CLASS OF 2018

 

Each year ESI will recognise three members of the esports community at large who have made a real difference to the sector over the course of their careers. Individuals who have played a prominent role in the promotion of esports, while displaying a level of commitment like few others. Those who have been pushing the industry forward through thick and thin, for the greater good of players and spectators all around the world.
