Esports Awards 2020 finalists – All the nominees

The annual Esports Awards will take place Saturday, 21 November 2020 where this year’s winners will be revealed. While no South Africans have been nominated for any of the Esports Awards in 2020, it is still great for fans to cast their votes, and there is some great talent on display.

There are also some personalities who will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement award, including Quake and esports legend Johnathan “FATAL1TY” Wendel, as well as the co-CEO of ESL, and Street Fighter legend Daigo Umehara, alongside journalist Richard Lewis.
