Our Story

Africa Esports Championship was born from a handful of African esports enthusiasts who came together out of a shared passion for esports and a commitment to grow economic opportunities for Africa’s youth while putting African esports industry on the global map. We envision an Africa built by collaboration with African citizens across the world, and the wider public in general. Esports provides an opportunity to enable and empower African youths economically and socially with the larger goal of transforming lives.

The Africa esports community in Africa is fast-growing with the esports eco-system spawning numerous opportunities for skills building and income generating activities across the industry including; Players, Castors, Event Organizers, Talent Managers, Media distribution, Content Creators and more.

AEC has pioneered impact in the esports sector through aggregating and building a Pan-African esports community. By working with local esports champions and leaders, we’ve been able to get a strong foothold in over 20 markets, elevated these communities through our local National leagues, spotlighted local talent and created employment.

We are looking to partner with brands, industry leaders and institutions across the globe to develop the esports industry in Africa through Tournaments, Education, Technology, Community Building, Entertainment, Tourism and Content Distribution.
