However, the Global Esports Federation still requires much convincing of the worldwide sports industry and community that still remains dubious of its ties to a Chinese conglomerate named Tencent. It has marked its position with several renowned names.

In July, the organization declared about its partnership with a Mardi based worldwide sports innovation centre which is owned by Microsoft.

While, two months ago, it announced another partnership with Japan-based international public relations and advertising company Dentsu.
