Since 2020, the female esports industry has exploded in popularity and the IESF Female World Esports Championship 2023 is a great place to watch the best female teams battling it out.

Now that most esports organizations (like Evil Geniuses and Fnatic), have launched their own female rosters to compete across the most popular games the competition is getting intense. 

Esports viewership has also seen an increase in female viewers watching from home on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. According to Statista, 22% of esports fans worldwide are female — which shows just how far the industry has come. 

Coming up soon is the highly anticipated IESF Female World eSports Championship 2023, which will be one of the biggest female esports tournaments of the year.

What is the International Esports Federation (IESF)? 

The IESF is a South Korean esports organization that hosts the annual Esports World Championship every year. 

At each Esports World Championship, a variety of different tournaments for the most popular esports games are played. Some of these games include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Tekken 7, PUBG Mobile, and more

Currently, there are 130 country members that belong to the IESF. From Argentina to China, the list is huge and highlights just how popular (and relevant) the IESF is on the world’s stage. 

In response to the growing popularity of female esports, the IESF has started to make some changes to how it operates as an organization. One of the biggest changes has been its recent expansion into the female esports world, as the IESF will now be hosting a female Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament at the World Esports Championship 2023. Let’s take a closer look at this. 

A Guide to the IESF Female World Esports Championship 2023

Fans who tune in to watch the World Esports Championship 2023 will be able to see an exclusive women’s CS:GO tournament. Originally, the plan was for the tournament to only feature 4 women’s teams. However, the plans have now changed — instead, the tournament will feature 10 CS: GO teams. This was in direct response to the success of the female gamers that took part in the 2022 WE Championship. 

Regarding this change, IESF President Vlad Mariescu stated:

“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of the women’s CS:GO tournament at this year’s World Esports Championships. This reflects the progress we have made in making esports more inclusive for all. We can’t wait to see what these incredible teams will bring to this year’s competition. IESF strongly believes in removing barriers to access for female gamers and providing them with more opportunities to shine on the world’s biggest stage.”
