WIGJ partner with first female focused GirlGamer Esports Festival in Portugal 20-22 July

Women in Games WIGJ is pleased to partner with the first esports festival in Europe focused predominantly on women. The GirlGamer Esports Festival is an action-packed 3 day event that celebrates and promotes female competitiveness in esports. A full day business conference on the Friday is followed by CSGO and League of Legends tournaments where 8 invited women’s teams from all over the world compete for a 20000 Euros prize pool.

This event was run for the first time last year in Macau, China and the organisers, Grow uP Esports, are bringing it to Europe in 2018. An esports event aimed predominantly at women is a first. Other festivals in Denmark and Sweden have held a women only competition but the one competition for women has always been secondary to a larger number of male dominated, open competitions. WIGJ wishes all the conference and tournament participants every success. This is the model that can be bright to many other cities around the world.

If any of our supporters would like to attend the business conference on the Friday and meet with WIGJ Board members Dr Ying-Ying Law and David Smith, you can use the WOMENINGAMES code to get a discounted conference pass.
