ESIC launches platform to teach fair play standards in esports

The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has launched the FairPlay Academy online platform which offers free tutorials on highest standards of conduct in gaming. The corresponding press release was published on the organization's official website.

Reportedly, the FairPlay Academy educational content is intended for anyone involved in the esports industry, including players, coaches, managers, tournament operators and other stakeholders. The courses are designed to help to create a fair and ethical esports environment.

The first tutorial is available on the platform from April 17 and provides the users with the information about the standards, which ESIC holds for those competing in esports. Self-paced learning modules explore the complexities of corruption, including match-fixing and betting fraud, providing a fundamental understanding of how to deal with these violations.

The FairPlay Academy plans to continually expand its library of tutorials and hopes to become a dynamic hub for educational content. Future offerings will cover a wide range of topics that are crucial to the global esports ecosystem, from anti-doping and responsible gaming to professional conduct and managing conflicts of interest.
