The Asian Electronic Sports Federation recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Games Ratings and Administration Committee of South Korea (GRAC). As a result of this deal, both organizations will work together to improve the AEFS Game Title Selection Pool Program.
This deal will also see the GRAC become part of a “task force” comprised of esports industry experts. Their aim is to ensure “fairness, accessibility, legitimacy of contents, and transparency in the selection of esports titles played at all AESF-sanctioned tournaments in the future.”
“We are very excited to be part of this initiative which plays a huge role in ensuring the integrity of esports at future competitions,” said Lee Jae Hong, Chairperson of the GRAC. “Alongside our counterparts at the AESF, I look forward to a fruitful collaboration which will, in the long term, pave the road for esports in being recognized on-par with other traditional sports on the biggest sporting stage.”
The AESF is the only esports body officially recognized by the Olympic Council of Asia. The organization was founded in 2018 and currently has 45 members.
