@Juan Carlos Medina, CTS jefe, any escuelas o programas de Esports en Mexico? 
@Virginia Wu any in Taiwan you know? 
@Rich Sasson any you know stateside? 
@Cristiano Mazza any programs in Brazil to your knowledge people can check out? 
Let's get a worldwide tournament going :)

@Joseph Valerio Afraid not - There are no esports resources that are supported by the government in the UK. We have to fund our own initiatives. British Esports are doing great work within Secondary Schools and Colleges to promote esports and create spaces for teens to play together in leagues, but this is purely reliant on their own funding processes. This is in the form of a BTEC, supported by Pearson (an educational publishing service) but there is no official recognised support from our government at the moment.

That being said, it does speak favorably of esports and video games created in the UK get a 20% tax break.

Thank you! Our AV provision for this coming space is quite basic sadly owing to budgetary constrictions, but we have plans for a second space in the next couple of years so I'll download it and have a read :)

Thank you for the highlight Joseph! Esports has certainly moved to the forefront of the gaming industry in recent years, but it's older than you might think! Esports leagues are ran at secondary, college and higher education establishments all around the world and it's great to see cross industry recognition being achieved!

I'd be delighted to engage with AV professionals on the merits and positives of esports, anytime :-) I also have plenty of resources and contacts within the esports industry who would be more than happy to speak to those who are interested in learning more!
