The Esports World Cup Foundation has unveiled an assistance package for esports teams and companies. The Esports World Cup is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia in 2024.

The EWC Club Programme aims to enable diverse esports clubs to expand their teams and add new players by providing them with the means to “promote sustainability.”

Teams who are interested may complete an application procedure developed by the Foundation before the deadline of February 15th. There will be 28 esports organisations in the globe that may apply for the scheme; 22 of them will get direct invites. Only six spots are open for candidates.

It was established last year. One of the games that will be included at the EWC is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, which was revealed earlier this year.

The Esports World Cup Foundation’s CEO, Ralf Reichert, offered the following statement in response to the announcement: “The EWC Club Programme enables clubs to build a sustainable pipeline for growth of both their existing teams and additional programmes.” Our mission is to assist the teams we work with in raising the profile of their brands, participating in top-tier competitions, and promoting esports as an international sport. Building esports’ future will mostly depend on facilitating the teams’ and players’
