On October 7, 2021, the third annual conference of the Augsburg-based Research Center for Esports Law (FeSR) took place in cooperation with the Hochschule Mittweida. The annual conference of the FeSR thus formed the legal part of the Esports theme week organized at the Hochschule Mittweida. Due to the developments in practice, the research center made "Contract Design in Esports Law" the general topic of its conference. With the increasing professionalization of Esports - in the recent past, for example, in the case of FaZe Clan vs Tfue - the drafting of contracts in Esports is increasingly becoming the focus of the branch.
Among others, Dr. Andreas Peschel-Mehner and Nepomuk Nothelfer were invited as speakers. Dr. Peschel-Mehner spoke in a co-presentation with Dr. Pietro Graf Fringuelli about pain points of the contract structures between league organizers and esports teams and Mr. Nothelfer in the concluding panel discussion.
