Watch: Countdown to ‘Games of the Future’ launched

The first ever international phygital tournament is set to take place in the Russian city of Kazan next February.

A countdown ceremony to mark 300 days before the start of the upcoming Games of the Future phygital tournament was held both in Moscow and the Russian city of Kazan on Saturday. The first ever international games of its kind are set to take place from February 23 to March 3, 2024.

The ceremony was attended by several high-profile officials, including Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, Rustam Minnikhanov, the head of Tatarstan, and others. Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the ceremony via a video message, calling the upcoming games a “unique event that has never been held before.”

“The Games of the Future will combine e-sports and conventional sports, video games, virtual and augmented reality tournaments, as well as traditional football, basketball, hockey and MMA matches, all on one platform,” Putin said.

The event is expected to bring together participants from more than 100 countries from all around the world, with over 50 of them already confirming their participation, Chernyshenko told Russian media earlier in the day.

“We still have a lot of work to do, but we already see a huge interest of the whole world,” he noted.

  1. And through the Russian dust, the Gulags previously known as Five Eyes look on with rage and envy. America led the west down the wrong path. A psychopathic greed for control of the world and its resources has led the west into a cul-de-sac of military in-fighting, poverty and squabbling about pronouns while the rest of the world moves on.
