India’s eFootball sensation, Hemanth Kommu, gears up for the Global Esports Games 2023 after a stellar performance in the Asian Qualifiers. Set to represent India in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Hemanth, known as ‘peshemak7’ in gaming circles, aims to secure a medal in this prestigious tournament.

Scheduled for his opener against Uruguay, Hemanth dives into the tournament amidst tough competition. Placed in Group D alongside top eFootball contenders from Brazil, Iran, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and Uruguay, the stakes are high for the Indian ace.

The group stage kicks off on December 13, featuring a rigorous Round Robin Best-of-3 format. With 28 players divided into four groups, the top three from each group advance to the Round of 16 playoffs.


An additional twist awaits with a last-chance qualifier for the 4th-placed player in each group from Stage 1. Only one player will secure a spot in the final stage, intensifying the competition in a Single Elimination Best-of-3 format.
