Top ESforce managers join State Duma esports expert board

On June 19, 2018, the Russian State Duma Committee for Sports, Tourism and Youth Affairs decided to invite esports experts to join the committee’s expert board. Representing ESforce Holding on the board are Maxim Maslov, CEO of Epic Esports Events, and Yaroslav Meshalkin, Chief Strategic Communications Officer at ESforce Holding. Representatives of the Russian eSports Federation and heads of departments at the Higher School of Economics and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations also joined the board.

As a member of the board, Maxim Maslov will be in charge of questions related to holding international esports tournaments, while Yaroslav Meshalkin’s domain will be esports mass culture. The experience and knowledge of these two department managers at one of the world’s largest esports holdings will thus contribute to the growth of Russian esports on a legislative level.

The expert board on legislative development in the field of esports is due to hold its first session early in July 2018.
