The German Olympic Sports Confederation has maintained its against welcoming esports for Olympic occasions, referring to a Hesse Interior and Sports Minister as a major aspect of their choice. That serve says ‘esports are as meager a game as sewing’, and is against financing esports organizations in Germany.

That opinion isn’t exclusive to the German Olympic Sports Confederation. Hesse Interior and Sports Minister, Peter Beuth, agreed: “Esports are as little sport as knitting and recorder play,” said Beuth. “We must not allow the e-gaming industry to collect these sports assets. The idea that the E-gaming industry is vying for funding, I think is absurd.”

“Esports does not exist. And it will not be included in the Olympic program, “said Alfons Hörmann, president of the German Olympic Sports Confederation.

This proclamation on esports came during the New Year reception for the German Olympic Sports Confederation, and doubled down from their previous statements in December.
