Could esports feature at the 2024 Olympics?

By site_editor

The BBC website (and other media) report that Paris 2024 Olympic organisers are "deep in talks" about including esports as a demonstration sport at the Games, says the International esports Federation.

The Paris bid team said it would discuss introducing esports with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) before being named host in September.

Competitive video gaming will be a medal event at the 2022 Asian Games.

"It won't be possible to be an official discipline," said IeSF acting secretary general Leopold Chung.

"But to be a demonstration title within the Paris Olympics."
