is the European Nations Championship?
The European Nations Championship is an eSports tournament presented by
Electronic Sports League in its fifth year now. The ENC has become an established tourney
for all European countries to find the best team in the different games.
For each season the ESL tries to get as many European countries as
possible to send a team for the hosted games. Even if these team members
might play on a high level and in professional leagues it is something
completely different to play in a national team. You play not for
yourself but for your home country and it's an honor for everybody to
represent his own country.
It is an acronym for electronic sports. This refers to the competitive
aspects of computer game tournaments. Players train hours after hours
to become the best in their game. The European Nations Championship is the playground for all nations' best gamers. Star
players have thousands of fans all over the world who support their
team and follow every match they play.
First of all you have to be at least 12 years old to participate in the
ENC unless a higher date is requested for the particular game. You are?
So you got the first step to take part. As you see all countries and
their teams are presented on this page (to be announced). In there you can find the Team
Manager of each country. He is the one to contact if you want to ask
for a spot in your team. But remember that every participant has to
have a passport of the country he wants to play for. If your country
doesn't have a Team Manager yet you can apply as soon as possible for
this position on the ENC site at your national team. So you might be
