New Zealand online gamers are preparing for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

E-sports will be a pilot sport event at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

This will give people a chance to see what this new sport is all about. E-sports officials have plans for the sport to becoming a full medal discipline at the 2026 Commonwealth Games.

In 2022 there will be eFootball an online version of a football match; Dota 2 a battle arena game in which teams destroy the opposition’s structures while protecting their own; and Rocket League a point-scoring game that is a combination of football and cars.

There will be an open category and a women’s category for each title at the Commonwealth e-sports Championships.
