From November 16th, the International Esports Federation (IESF) World Championship Finals will begin with a four-day event. This event will conclude this year’s World Championship after regional competitions have determined the finalists.

This year, for the very first time, an athlete from Luxembourg has qualified for the offline final event of the World Championship. Daniel “Diffside45” Araujo, who is part of the FLF and IESF national squad, was selected to represent Luxembourg in the regional qualifiers. After victories against Portugal and Sweden among others, Daniel managed to make the impossible come true and qualified for the finals. More than 80 nations took part in the regional qualifiers.

The goal is to qualify for the playoffs via the group phase and later for the grand finale, which will take place on Thursday.

The LESF is an internationally recognized non-profit association (association sans but lucratif) founded in June 2020 with the aim to promote esports as well as to federate esports stakeholders and represent their collective interests in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

One of the missions of the LESF is the official recognition of esports in Luxembourg as a sport in its own right next to traditional sports. The LESF does not pursue the idea to establish esports as a competitor or even rival to traditional sports, but intends to bring esports and traditional sports disciplines closer together irrespective of their analog or digital nature.
