According to foreign media Gamesindustry, at the recent Berlin Summit, 12 countries held a series of meetings and finally agreed to establish the European Esports Federation this year. The alliance will become a "coordinating partner" of the e-sports industry, rather than a management body of the industry. These 12 countries include the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, France, Russia, Slovenia, Serbia, Sweden, Turkey and Ukraine. The Berlin Conference was also attended by the European Interactive Software Alliance, the German Game Industry Association, ESL, StarLadder and Freaks 4U Gaming. Hans Jagno, chairman of the German Electronic Sports Federation (ESBD), said: "The commitment of E-sport is a strong signal: Europe is a lot of young people.
