The European Esports Federation (EEF) has become a member of the Esports Integrity
Commission (ESIC). EEF guarantees that it will follow the ESIC code of ethics and ensures
that all future competitions to be organized or licensed by the EEF will comply with ESIC’s
anti-corruption and anti-doping code and the player’s and managers’ code of conduct.
“This collaboration will give us a chance to further develop the regulations of the
competitions that benefit both the national federations and their players. It’s a step
towards strengthening the esports ecosystem and increasing professionalism and
competitive integrity of the upcoming European Championships”, says Tiago Fernandes,
President of the European Esports Federation.
This foresees fair and transparent competitions, where integrity and fair competition is
ubiquitous, as well as true sportsmanship. A pivotal point in the development of the Esports
industry is the protection of the community and its supporters. The Esports world should be
striving to create a safe and fair environment where diversity is cherished, and everyone
has a chance because we are here to distribute to them. Esports is more than just business
and organization, it is a way of life.
Stephen Hanna, Director of Global Strategy and Partnerships at the Esports Integrity
The commission said: “We are delighted to welcome the European Esports Federation as a
federation member of the Esports Integrity Commission. This collaboration not only
strengthens our joint commitment to promoting transparency, fair play, and competitive
integrity across the global esports industry. By adhering to the ESIC Integrity Program and
implementing our anti-corruption and anti-doping measures, the EEF showcases its
dedication to maintaining the highest standards of integrity in esports. We are looking
forward to working together to create a safer and fairer environment for all stakeholders
and to foster the growth and success of esports in Europe and beyond.”
The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) is a non-profit association founded in 2016 with
a goal to be the recognized guardian of the integrity of esports and to take responsibility for disruption, prevention, investigation, and prosecution of all forms of cheating, including, but not limited to, match manipulation and doping.
