Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup (TEGC) 2023, a gaming competition combining multiple esports, will be held in India from September 28 to October 22. The elimination rounds will be conducted on virtual platforms, while the finale will be an in-person event at a venue to be decided later.

This year is the tenth edition of the TEGC. For the first time, it will bring together all former TEGC champions from India on one stage. Tech influencers will livestream the event. The tournament will feature men’s and women’s competitions.

There are plans to collaborate with an NGO working with underprivileged children as part of the event’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The tie-up is aimed at allowing children to get an experience of gaming.

A report by Mordor Intelligence has estimated that India’s gaming market will grow from USD 3.02 billion in 2023 to USD 6.26 billion by 2028, a CAGR of 15.68% during the period.

Speaking at the launch of the event, Poyi Edison Hsu, Director of Taipei World Trade Centre Liaison Office in Mumbai (TAITRA- Mumbai) said, “From 500 participants at its debut, the TEGC has come a long way with the 10th edition expected to have over 25,000 young Indian gamers battling it out to be the champion.”

Commenting on the future of esports in India, Edison Hsu said, “India’s demographic advantage, growing IT infrastructure and internet and smartphone penetration augurs well for the future of the gaming industry.”
