When eSport remains a dream - Ground Zero not coming to Copenhagen Games.

Magnethead // 13/04-2017

In Copenhagen Games, we pride ourselves on our international reputation and we take great pleasure in seeing participants from all over the world convene in the Danish capital to celebrate all kinds of eSports on all levels. 

What people may not always realise is, it takes a lot of work, a lot of cutting through red tape and a lot of coordination to make an international eSports event happen. Unfortunately, this process sometimes fails and teams get caught in the middle. That is the case with Lebanese Ground Zero. 

After months of failed attempts, we had to accept that we couldn’t get Ground Zero’s VISA application approved and so we are left one team short in our Main Tournament. We’re sad to see Ground Zero slip through our fingers like this but we really hope to see them in a future event instead!

It should be plain by now that establishing and running a professional eSport team is difficult and demanding. Don’t let that discourage you, though! On Friday from 12.00 - 12.30, Copenhagen Games hosts a conference by Christian Cramer Nielsen who talks about ‘Creating an Association for your eSports Team’. It’s a great start for anyone who’s looking to expand or establish their eSports dreams. We hope to see you there!
