"Hello esports fans.
The eSports Federation was founded in March of 2012 to help protect the rights and interests of StarCraft 2 teams and progamers. Through cooperation with our chairman company in GomTV, we sponsored the GSTL, planned online preliminaries for foreign tournaments like MLG and IPL, and tried to create Dota2 teams to diversify eSports disciplines.
However, with the industry going through rough times recently, and because teams could not solve their financial problems, it came to a situation where many teams disbanded. Additionally, it has come to be that the GSTL cannot be held anymore.
The eSF has put the rights and interests of the players first, and is working on getting the players signed to KeSPA and international teams. Also, we are cooperating with KeSPA so that players can attend educational seminars etc. so eSF players can receive KeSPA progamer licenses.
We would like to thank GOM eXP's Mr. Kwak Jong Wook who gave the federation so much help, and send out a heartfelt thank you to the eSF teams, staff, and players. Also, we want to thank the developers, media, and members of the community.
The eSF is disbanding as of January 28th.
We apologize for being unable to live up to the expectations of the fans, and we thank all of you for giving us your endless love and support."
eSF disbanding does not mean Startale or Azubu are disbanding.
The e-Sports federation was founded on 03/30/12.
