Qualification for the Olympic Esports 2023 starts from today, with both professional and amateur players of each game globally being invited to take part. Qualification concludes on 15 May 2023, with the finals going ahead on 23-25 June 2023 in Singapore.
The nine games that’ll be featured at the Olympic Esports this year all coincide with a sport, and these are as follows:

For each event, qualification starts on varying dates, and will follow a different process depending on the game involved.
