Turkish Gaming Federation
There will be an eSports World championship event in Korea soon, but because that Turkey didn’t have any national team they could not send any of the over 3000 applicants to Korea to compete. That’s why they formed the Turkish Gaming Federation.
Republic of Turkey’s Sport and Youth Committee President Yusuf Akyuz says:
“There’s a world championship at Seoul this month. There were three thousand applicants from Turkey. However, we do not have a national team so we could not send anyone.”
All video games will be included in the in the federation, but they will exclude gambling and luck-based games. The games will also be divided in age categories.

Good luck Turkey with this and I hope to see more countries do the same!
