WESA establishes esports arbitration court

The World Esports Association on Wednesday announced the formation of the WESA Arbitration Court to handle “a variety of legal issues” in esports.

The arbitration court will act independently of the rest of WESA and is open to anyone involved in esports, according to the announcement.

“The impartial nature of the arbitration process ensures a variety of issues – from contract disputes to prize money distribution and many others – can be handled expeditiously in a fair, equitable and cost effective manner,” WESA executive chair and commissioner Ken Hershman said in the announcement.

WESA was founded in May by seven European-based esports organizations and the ESL.
