In the last 3 years, esports has becoming a big thing in the world, including Indonesia. Many game companies in Indonesia try to diversify their business to esports, ranging from organizers, media, to the professional players itself.
One of the rising esports companies in Indonesia is Indonesia Esports Premier League or IESPL. IESPL is the largest multi-title esports league in Indonesia. After successfully holding their first season last year, they are getting ready to hold their second season at the end of this year.
Earlier this year, IESPL was also trusted by the Indonesian government to hold the first and biggest esports tournament in Indonesia. Entitled the Esport President Cup, Mobile Legends tournament was fully supported by the President of the Republic of Indonesia.
Gamescom 2019 will be their first participation in international game events. “We are here for Indonesia’s esports community to grow the ecosystem,” said Giring Ganesha, President of IESPL. “We also want to contribute, not just in Indonesia but also in all across the world,” he continued.
In its first season, there were four games competed in IESPL: Dota2, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Mobile Legends, and Point Blank. The league was participated by 12 top esports organizations in Indonesia such as EVOS, RRQ, Bigetron, and NXL>. Every organization who participated in this league should have players or teams who can compete in every single game in IESPL.
Indonesian games will reach the global market through Europe's biggest game convention, Gamescom 2019 with the support from Archipelageek program.
“Our motivation to join Gamescom 2019 is to provide opportunities to the gaming industry. We want to develop the esports ecosystem in Indonesia through global partnership. “My dream is to see Indonesian eSports athlete having a good career path in the international esports scene,” he ended.
