FIFAe unveils FAMEHERGAME boot camp for female esports players

June 2 – FIFAe, who have made a commitment to encourage more female esports players, have announced the first-ever FAMEHERGAME boot camp.

The boot camp will take place from June 14-16 in Zurich, Switzerland, at the FIFA Museum and the Home of FIFA, the headquarters of the world governing body.

Participants are being nominated by national associations worldwide through their own local boot camps.

The boot camp will give attendees the opportunity to learn from experts and then compete in a two-day tournament for a chance to win an all‑inclusive trip to the Women’s World Cup 2023. The top two players win the trip.
“With this state-of-the-art boot camp, FIFAe supports us in our mission to empower women in the football community,” said Sarai Bareman, Chief Women’s Football Officer at FIFA. “This programme provides a unique opportunity for women in the community to develop their skills, build their networks, and grow their confidence both on and off the digital pitch. The event will undoubtedly unlock the full potential of many talented women within FIFAe and we are looking forward to welcoming two of them in Australia later this year.”

The boot camp has been designed to improve player skills and support them in their professional and personal development to become competitive football esports players.

“It will also address some of the struggles women face in esports based on community research conducted last year,” said FIFA. The programme will focus on content creation, mental and physical health, competitive coaching and media training.
