The Esports Association, Ghana (EAG) have revealed their plans for the upcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games Championships to be held in Birmingham, England from 6 -7 August 2022.

The CEC is a partnership between the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) and the Global Esports Federation (GEF) and will be held alongside the 2022 Commonwealth Games – which is due to open on July 28 and conclude on August 8 – but will not be a medal sport.

The titles for the historic event were revealed back in March to be Dota 2, eFootball™ and Rocket League with the President of the EAG, Kwesi Hayford, stating in an exclusive interview with EAN that Ghana will be participating in only eFootball™ and Rocket League.


“We needed to choose two games for the Commowealth [Games], so we chose PES and Rocket League I can’t say logistically we would want to raise a team for Dota when we do not have a team for Dota.”

“I know there are players who play Dota but how many are they we are not prepared enough for me I think that we need to grow where our community is.”

“We already have a small community for PES so it’s okay, we have a small community for Rocket League so it’s okay because I know we’ve done tournaments in these titles so we can do it even if we have to call players put them together and train them instead of doing qualifiers there is always a way around.”

Now plans seem to be taking shape as the EAG has revealed on their official website that the qualifiers for the 2022 CEC will be held on May 3 at the Esports Academy in Haatso.

The EAG also stated on their site that the association is “for the first time, putting together the best female team to play in eFootball and Rocket League.”

Further details on the upcoming qualifiers reveal that the tournament will be played on the PlayStation 5 console and on PC for eFootball and cross-platform for Rocket League.
