The Nigerian esports organisation, Gamr, has announced they will be partnering with the Lagos State Esports Association (LSEA) to organise and monitor the Nigerian Qualifiers for the upcoming 14th World Esports Championships to be held in Bali, Indonesia.

The Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Gamr, Kunmi Adenipebi, revealed that the company is honoured to be working with the LSEA to organise the event.

“We are honoured to have partnered with the Lagos State Esports Association in organising and monitoring the Nigerian qualifiers for the upcoming 14th Esports World Championship at Bali.” Kumi said, “Another dream come true for Nigerian gamers and the esports community.”

Dubbed the “Road to Bali,” the Nigerian Qualifiers for the 14th World Esports Championships are set to be held on September 3 at the Silverbird Galleria in Lagos, Nigeria and will see gamers battle it out for the honour of representing their nation in either eFootball or Tekken 7.

Gamr has been making a name for themselves this year by organising what many would consider the continent’s biggest esports event, Gamr X, which brought together some of the best gamers from 10 African countries to do battle in five game titles for a prize pool of $15,000.

The Nigerian esports organisation is also collaborating with esports and gaming organiser and production company, Mettlestate, to organise the CS:GO Intel Africa Masters tournament, which could be the continent’s biggest esports event in 2022.
