NSA grants sole governing status to eSports Federation, Ghana

The National Sports Authority has officially recognized the eSports Federation, Ghana as a governing body for E-Sports in Ghana.

Following thorough evaluation and compliance with registration criteria, the Federation has been granted authority over electronic gaming sports within the country by the NSA.

In a meeting held in February between the federation’s President, Igor Boumekpo, and NSA officials, discussions centred on the federation’s role in autonomously regulating and overseeing all esports-related activities in Ghana. The recent approval solidifies this arrangement.

This decision by the NSA is poised to significantly impact the esports community in Ghana and, by extension, the broader gaming community across Africa.

Over the years, eSports Federation, Ghana has spearheaded various gaming competitions and events in Ghana and the African continent. Notable among these are the Warm Up ESports Festival in collaboration with 3Sports and the annual Orange eSports events since 2018.

This year, the federation organized the NFL Fan Zone event in Accra, coinciding with the NFL Africa Touchdown, which saw the participation of dignitaries such as the Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
