The Global Esports Camp, hosted by the Korea Esports Association (KeSPA) in Daejeon City, is scheduled to take place June 25-27. The camp, which is supported by the Korea Ministry of Culture, Sport, and Tourism, will offer participants an unparalleled experience in esports education and training, including:

  • Mentoring and coaching from top Tekken pro players Arslan Ash and Knee
  • High-level scrim training with coaching and feedback 
  • Sessions with esports stars and top coaches covering the current state and future of esports 
  • Discussion of physical and mental well-being, conducted by experienced professional instructors and South Korean national athletes

"Sending a Tekken player to Korea is an unparalleled opportunity to be immersed in the heartland of competitive gaming, where every frame, every move, is finely honed to perfection,” said Bethany Pyles, Player Development Specialist of USEF.GG. ”  It's not just about leveling up skills; it's about absorbing the culture, the dedication, and the relentless pursuit of excellence that defines the fighting game scene. This collaboration between USEF.GG, Ghost Gaming, and KeSPA provides a chance to evolve not just as a player, but as a true contender on the global stage."

“Our goal is to provide a networking and exchange platform for USEF.GG players and those from other countries,” said Jorrel Batac, COO of USEF.GG. “It has been exciting to work closely with KeSPA to develop this opportunity, and we look forward to the continued exchange between U.S. and Korean esports athletes.”

“This event for Tekken players is just the beginning,” said Todd Harris,  CEO of Ghost Gaming. “Ghost Gaming is excited to work with USEF.GG to provide more international exchange opportunities between various countries and esports federations.”
