WHAT IS THE ESI HALL OF FAME [#ESIHOF]

 

The ESI Hall of Fame is an ongoing project designed to honour those who have most contributed to the development as esports as a business over its long and storied history. We do not discriminate based on role or company, and the only thing all our inductees have in common is their incredible achievements in within our industry.

Our induction ceremonies have taken place at the Natural History Museum in London (2018), the Nixon Peabody Offices in Los Angeles (2019) and online (during the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020), and we hope to continue to honour esports visionaries around the world as this new decade continues.

Each year ESI will recognise three members of the esports community at large who have made a real difference to the sector over the course of their careers. Individuals who have played a prominent role in the promotion of esports, while displaying a level of commitment like few others. Those who have been pushing the industry forward through thick and thin, for the greater good of players and spectators all around the world.
