Alternatively, players can also fill up a registration form provided by the official ESFI account of X.

The last date for registration is April 15 which is to be followed through online qualifiers starting April 18. All matches will be broadcast across the official channels of ESFI on YouTube and Facebook. Winners of the national qualifiers will then compete in the regional qualifier to secure a spot at the WE Championship.

Speaking about the NESC, the president of ESFI, Vinod Tiwari said, “After a historic 2023, where India made its debut at the Asian Games 2022, we are excited to embark on a new year of opportunities with the NESC 2024.

“Last year, we hosted the country's inaugural female CS: GO qualifiers, where the winning team made it to the Asian qualifiers. This time, we anticipate even greater achievements from our country’s talented female athletes,” he further added.

As for the WE Championship, the tournament will see a total of 609 teams from across the world in Riyadh. The event will kick off starting November 11 and will feature a prize pool of $1 million (each game) which will be distributed among the top eight teams.
