Esports World Cup, formerly Gamers8, is an eight-week-long esports competition that fields multiple esports titles such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, StarCraft, and Counter-Strike. The Esports World Cup is organized by the Esports World Cup Foundation, a Saudi Arabian government-founded non-profit organization.

The Riyadh Masters will take place in July this year. It starts on July 4 and will continue for nearly 17 days to end on the 21st.
