Electronic and Video Game Festival of Abidjan (FEJA): the biggest eSport event in Africa

The Electronic and Video Game Festival of Abidjan (FEJA) (www.FEJA.ci) will take place on 11 and 12 November 2017 at Palais de la Culture.

This festival will welcome more than 50 000 video game lovers.

The 2017 edition will feature eSports tournaments. The qualifications will start on September 23rd at Playce Marcory in Abidjan and lead to the selection of 256 gamers coming from various African countries who will compete during the FEJA. More than 10000 € will be given in cash prizes to the winners.

Sidick Bakayoko, managing director of Paradise Game, the event producer stated: «We wanted to gather in one place all the players of this untapped industry in Africa. From the developer to the end user, including the manufacturers and distributors, FEJA is a true platform for exchange, allowing people to share their passion and promote video-gaming in Africa».

The worldwide video game industry is worth 100 billion dollars and 27% of the revenues come from mobile games.

Africa only represents a fraction of that but has a huge potential with more than 400 Million Africans who play on their mobile.

The gaming industry consequently offers a significant number of career opportunities to young Africans including scriptwriter, game designers, programmers, pro-gamers, etc.

This large-scale event is made possible thanks to the support of Orange Côte d’Ivoire, official partner of the FEJA. With over 5000 sq. meters dedicated to gaming (game console, PC, virtual reality, etc.), and to technological innovation, the venue will be transformed into a digital paradise.
