The best Esports events

The number of events of esports in Spain does not stop growing. More and more people have their sights set on them. And according to the White Paper on Spanish esports by AEVI (AsociaciĆ³n EspaƱola de Videojuegos), esports generated revenues of 14.5 million euros in Spain last year.

The esports are becoming a very juicy market worldwide, but also in Spain. The country hosts major events for electronic sports fans, professionals, expert players and amateurs. This 2019 is full of conferences you can’t miss if you want to enjoy the best of the industry.

Events of esports in Spain in 2019

This is a compilation of the most important events and competitions of face-to-face sports in Spain. Tournaments that every fan should note in their agenda. They will take place throughout 2019.

Gamergy

Gamergy is the largest sports event in Spain. It is organized by the Liga de Videojuegos Profesional (Grupo MEDIAPRO) and IFEMA. In its tenth edition, the meeting comes with many new features. You will also be able to experience the Superliga Orange finals and the best professional competitions live.

“Already consolidated as the ideal setting for the Orange Super League finals of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Clash Royale, the tenth edition of Gamergy will also be an outstanding stop for national and international tournaments that do not have a regular professional circuit,” Ifema said.

In this sense and given the furor caused by the celebration of the YT Battle Royale with El Rubius, work is being done so that the tenth edition of Gamergy has the presence of several influencers. And, of course, there will also be some Fortnite competitions.

Professional, semi-professional and casual players will attend one of the most important events for sports in Spain. An event that has an interesting novelty: The inclusion of more game posts than ever before. In this way, Gamergy visitors will have the opportunity to test their skills with a PC, a console or a mobile phone.
