Indian team qualifies for the 2021 Esports World Championship


The 13th World Esports Championship is going to be held online from 11th September to 10th October, in which a strong team of 17 members, representing our country, after qualifying the regionals are going to participate.

Team Csgo has five members consisting of Captain Ritesh Sarda, Anshul Adardkar, Shuvajyoti Chakraborty, Harsh Jain, and Hrishikesh Shenoy.

Team Dota also has five members including Captain Jaikishan Malik, Shubham Goli, Manav Kunte, Ranjit Biswal, and Vedant Patil.

For PES 2021 we have Hemant Kommu and for Tekken7 we have Hitesh Khorwal who will be representing India in the Globals.

They all have won and qualified for the recently held National Esports Championship (NESC) 2021 and now will represent India in the prestigious tournament. The 2021 Esports World Championship is not going to be like the one held last year. Last year it was held online and virtually. But this year, it will be performed both virtually and physically. It is a mix of online and offline matches, unlike the last edition.

There are a total of 10 different regions and all the countries are placed in different regions. The regional qualifiers will go to the finals. The finals are going to be held at Eilat, Israel from 14th to 19th November and will be played offline. The Indian group is put down to the South Asia region with Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, UAE, and the Maldives.

Yugal Kishore Sharma, Director of Esports Federation of India said “It’s great to see Indian youth growing so much interest towards Esports recently. I wish the entire squad best of luck for the prestigious event on behalf of Esports Federation of India.”

The National Esports Championship 2021 was a hell of a Roller Coaster ride and full of surprises as the new talents overthrew the defending champions from their spots and earned themselves spots at the Esports World Championship. Esports World Championship of this upcoming season will notice a tough competition with the National Esports Federations of 77 countries taking part in it.

The matches are going to be streamed live on the official channels of the International Esports Federation. ESFI continued its partnership with Artsmith- Concepts & Visions which will continue its support as the communication partner for the prestigious World Championships.
