Russia to have Esports tournaments in schools: Putin Esports

Russia to have Esports tournaments in schools: Putin

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 10 Sep, 2020

Russian President Vladimir Putin has extended his support for the Esports industry by letting them thrive officially across Russian schools. Esports is now accepted in the law and Putin has welcomed it by saying a yes to the idea of holding Esports tournaments in Russian schools during the All-Russian open lesson. Talking about Esports, Putin said, “Esports in schools will contribute to the destruction of cliches in the minds of many parents that computer games are pure evil.”

Russia is among the very first countries in the world to officially recognise esports as a sports discipline in the year 2016 itself and now taking further steps to inculcate esports culture along with traditional sports in school curriculum. Putin emphasized that esports is ‘highly useful’ and they will prove to be very helpful if the tournaments are held in the best possible manner.

As a prerequisite to conduct esports tournaments, schools will be getting a complete upgrade in terms of hardware. As per Putin’s speech, the least possible hardware used for supporting the game in decent graphics to keep up with the quality will be utilised. 

The lockdown due to coronavirus has helped boost the esports industry further. The growth can be traced as more and more players have been active in-game with a hike in viewership on streaming platforms. The League of Legends Eurpoean Championship (LEC) viewership had peaked one million viewers. Colleges in China and America provide courses in college for esports too.

President Putin’s initiative will help boost the esports industry to flourish in Russia. A grassroots level has been set for upcoming players who want to opt gaming as their profession from a very early age. School going students that have used the time during Covid-19 lockdown to engage in esports will now have an opportunity to flaunt their skills at school and among their peers!
