The new annual esports event showcasing African esports talent and professionals

The new annual esports rendezvous that highlights the talents and professionals of esports in Africa. 

Orchestrated by SAGES, an organization deeply committed to the development and structuring of esports on the African continent, and esports professionals in each country, this inaugural edition was organized in 2022 by the French Institute as part of Digital November.

This regional competition focused on the FIFA22 game on Playstation 4, involving Mali, Chad, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Senegal. Local qualifications, held within the French cultural network, saw the participation of 50 to 100 players per country, selected through online communication campaigns. The competition culminated in a regional final in Dakar, Senegal, on November 23, 2022, where the top two players from each country, representing a total of 10 competitors, faced off.
