About Esports in the UAE
The UAE is fast becoming a hub for esports in the Middle East, a region where 65 percent of the population is under 30 and excitement about gaming is on the rise. In October 2022, the UAE hosted the first MENA Games for Change Summit on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island in partnership with AD Gaming, twofour54, and the US Mission to the UAE.
Regional esports leaders like Power League Gaming and Nasr Esports are based in the UAE, and the nation has unveiled ambitious plans for a new stadium and a constant stream of events and tournaments.
