Title[Announcement] WSL2021 Postponed due to COVID-192021-10-25 16:03


[WSL2021 Postpone Official Announcement]

Thank you for your support and interest in the World eSports League with deep interest and affection.

With the recent increase in the number of people infected with the COVID-19 at home and abroad, the infectious disease crisis alert in Korea has been upgraded to a "serious stage." In response to the crisis, WSL Organizing Committee has been considering various countermeasures to overcome the current situation while keeping a close eye on the health and safety of participating federations / associations and players.

Contrary to expectations, however, the COVID-19 situation is getting worse in Korea and around the world. In this situation, rather than pushing ahead with the tournament, we decided that delaying the schedule and holding the tournament in a safe environment would be the best way for both participating federations/associations and players.

Therefore, we decided to postpone WSL 2021 with a heavy heart.

When the WSL Organizing Committee was first launched, we made it our top priority to pursue “to provide an enjoyable experience through eSports tournaments to fans and players around the world”. Although it has become difficult to implement this year unfortunately, we will make more efforts to make it a rich tournament for more players to participate in next year.

Once again, we would like to ask for your understanding of the unfortunate news to the federations / associations and players of each country.

We ask for your generosity to understand the inevitable decision as the health and safety of everyone participating in the WSL 2021 is our top priority.

Yours sincerely,

World eSports League Organizing Committee
