Since 2015, Gamer.LK has conducted activities dedicated to women gamers at its major tournaments which have seen an increasing number of participants. In 2019, Gamer.LK began the Women’s Cyber Games with the intention of providing a dedicated platform for female gamers to showcase their skills. Since then, it has now grown to be one of the largest female-only sporting events in the country.
Gamer.LK has consistently promoted more female representation in the field of Esports, where women’s participation is limited only due to conservative social norms which are now increasingly being corrected globally. Sri Lanka’s National Esports athletes are set to take the global stage at events such as the 19th Asian Games, Esports World Championship, Commonwealth Esports Championship, Global Esports Games and many more. South Asia’s first Women’s National Esports team came from Sri Lanka, setting the benchmark for women’s participation in Esports in the region.
