The Esports World Convention, originally the Electronic Sports World Cup[1], was created in 2003. From its first editions at Futuroscope, the World Cup has federated thousands of video game tournaments on the 5 continents. In 2005 at the Louvre of Paris, then at Paris Bercy in 2006, the event has become a reference for the organization of video game competitions and live match showcases. In 2008, the Grand Final was organized in San José, California. Since 2011, the ESWC Finals thrilled the Paris Games Week with 5 days of shows staged in front of 250,000 spectators and an Internet audience of millions.

ESWC was created and developed by Matthieu Dallon, and has been acquired by Oxent in 2012. ESWC has always grown as an independent and innovative project, representing gamers’ aspirations. ESWC is part and pioneer of the electronic sports international movement. ESWC federates companies as non-profit organizations all over the world; all convinced that video games champions are genuine athletes, precursors of their generation and the new sports of the 21st century.
