In addition, the QESF signed an MoU with QUEST esports company and on his behalf, the CEO and founder of QUEST Mr. Elie Honain said: “Today, we have marked another important milestone in the growth of esports in Qatar. Through our partnership with the Qatar eSports Federation, we will be able to grow our local talent pool through additional support and training, as well as increase the frequency of live competitions – both intrinsic pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030’s plans for supporting the broader sports ecosystem and youth development. Qatar has already made significant moves in becoming the region’s leading eSports hub and this collaboration is only set to enhance that.”

From his part, QESF Secretary General Mr. Faisal Abdulrahman Khalid shed light on the vision and brand of the federation. The logo concept came to place by bridging the first letter of Qatar in both English and Arabic to symbolize a joystick.

"The federation aims to establish a culture of Esports in Qatar and provide talented athletes with a clear path for professional progression to be able to represent Qatar at international levels." He said.
