The third iteration of the Esports Insider Hall of Fame which we created to recognise and award those individuals who have built, moulded and continue to shape the esports industry.
In 2018, the awards evening itself took place at the Natural History Museum in the heart of London. In partnership with Ginx Esports TV we inaugurated the very first three ESI HoF inductees, and followed this up with a party in the main hall until the early hours of the morning.
Taking place during E3 in Los Angeles at Nixon Peabody, we decided the class of 2019 and celebrated the next three inductees’ entrance in style with an evening of drinks, fine food and even finer company all whilst overlooking the city of angels.
The ESI Hall of Fame is an ongoing and long-term project, with new members added each year. As esports is a global and borderless industry, the party is online for 2020 as part of the first day of ESI Digital Winter.

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.
