The Saudi Esports Federation is putting up Gamers8 Riyadh, which will include professional esports, festivals, music, and the subsequent international summit as its four primary pillars of concentration. You are the gateway to the next world during this event. More than 1,000 events and attractions, including comedy, magic performances, and live music, will be available at Gamers8 in Las Vegas. From July 14 through September 1, there will be a series of concerts. It is anticipated that eight foreign musicians will perform at the Boulevard Riyadh City event, in addition to many regional and local performers. Additionally, they will air the Gamers8 competitions in various languages via various event channels. A gamer may be found in almost every house in the city, with a total population of 35 million. It doesn't matter whether it's Fortnite, Dota 2, Rainbow Six Siege, or any other esports game that's now trendy. One or more avid gamers may be seen playing their favorite games on any of the platforms mentioned above in their own houses. The aspirations have widened. The Saudi Esports Federation, the nation's authority for cultivating significant gamers and growing the country's gaming community and economy, has inspired a strong desire to be a worldwide leader in esports and gaming. Saudi Arabia's gaming industry is a living, breathing example of this. Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) announced the opening of the Savvy Gaming Group earlier this year. With Mohammed Bin Salman, Saudi Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, and Chairman of PIF as its chief executive officer, Savvy was established to become the world's premier gaming and esports organization domestically and globally.

As part of the deal to create 'ESL FACEIT Group,' Savvy acquired esports company ESL Gaming and event organizer FACEIT for a combined $1 billion or more. According to the Boston Consulting Group, gaming consumption in Saudi Arabia is estimated to rise at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 22%, from $959 million in 2020 to $6.8 billion by 2030. A survey by Redseer found that 69 percent of online adult females in the Kingdom are interested in digital gaming, which is 1% greater than their male counterparts. Increased spending by current gamers, more fantastic time spent by users, and a rise in connected advertising income will drive the market's further expansion. Virtual avatars, virtual events, digital concerts, play-to-earn games, and business gamification are examples of how even non-gamers will be drawn into the gaming world. This year's Gamers8 event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia's largest esports and gaming event, illustrates the blurring of the barriers between what is real and what is virtual.

Teams will line up in Boulevard Riyadh City for eight weeks to participate in five different video games under the theme "Gamers8 - Your Portal to the Next World." The total prize money up for grabs is $15 million. It's all part of the Saudi Esports Federation's plan to make the most of gaming and competitive esports' vast potential in Saudi Arabia's entertainment calendar. Fans and artists alike may benefit significantly from an in-person setting rather than being confined to screens. As the Saudi market's gaming and esports value chain develops, investors and the general public will become more aware of the possibilities. A wide range of positions in various related fields is available. That implies more employment opportunities for Saudi Arabia's youthful, tech-savvy populace in innovation, entrepreneurship, and talent development. Saudi Arabia's diversification is aided by the growth of esports in the country. Even though Saudi Arabia has already established itself as an esports powerhouse in the area, it may also emerge as a prominent global media center.
