ESA Winter 2022

After two years, ESA Winter is returning to a live event! This means we will once again be welcoming runners from across the world at ESA Winter. We thank all of the past runners and volunteers who participated in the event survey and all of the other speedrunner organisers who’ve shared their knowledge and experience with live events in the past year.

In 2022 ESA Winter will once again be in aid of Alzheimerfonden.

Tickets will go on sale on November 1st and there will be a soft cap of 150 tickets available. A fully flexible cancellation policy will be introduced for this event for those that change their minds or need to cancel up until 7 days before the event. All attendees, volunteers, runners and staff will be required to show proof of vaccination to enter the event area.

The world is still not what it was a two year ago. ESA is following the recommendations set by the Swedish Public Health Authority and working with Nordic Choice Hotels to uphold their Safe Stay Guidelines.

Game Submissions will open tomorrow, on October 23rd. Depending on the submissions and the amount of attendees on-site this event might have a pre-event with runners performing their showcases online. Filling the entire schedule with runners at the event is always preferred, so the hybrid approach will only be chosen if we cannot reach that goal. We thank everybody who helped out, submitted and showcased their runs throughout those last almost two years of online events, but it is now time to return back to Malmö. We hope to see you there and greet you in person.
