An international eSports tournament for disabled gamers will be held this October in South Korea. Over two hundred players from twelve countries, including the U.S., South Africa, Germany, and South Korea will compete in League of Legends, StarCraft II, and FIFA Online 3.
It's great to see such an inclusive tournament like this, especially because, as pointed out on Sports Kyunghyang (via tipster Sang), it's 150 percent more expensive to hold a tournament for disabled gamers due to logistical reasons. Good to see the organizers and South Korea's Ministory of Culture, Sports and Tourism are willing to make this happen.
The IeSA 2014 World Championships will be held from October from 8th to 12th at Seungshin Women's University.
