ES Gaming – Powered by Easterseals – Announces Partnership with Oxygen Esports to Enhance Inclusion and Accessibility for 46M Disabled Gamers in the US



There are 46 million gamers in the US with at least one disability according to 3 Play Media. Yet representation and acceptance of disabled gamers continues to be a struggle, something a new partnership between ES Gaming, powered by Easterseals, and Oxygen Esports (OXG) intends to remedy.

ES Gaming is an initiative of Easterseals, one of the nation’s leading providers of services and advocacy for the one in four Americans with disabilities today. The organization’s commitment to full equity, inclusion, and access for people with disabilities, including veterans and seniors, led to the introduction of ES Gaming in late 2022 to create a new standard of inclusion and accessibility in the gaming industry for disabled gamers as well as disability advocates and allies. The more inclusive community is designed to amplify disabled voices and accessible innovations in the ever-evolving gaming industry.

Its partnership with Oxygen Esports, one of the largest esports organizations in North America, promises to elevate awareness and engagement with ES Gaming among all gamers through visibility on OXG’s platform, social media channels, inclusive sponsored events, and stories showcasing the achievements and skills of the disabled community.

“We could not be more excited about our partnership with Oxygen Esports. Their commitment to competitive excellence and accessibility in gaming aligns with the vision of ES Gaming in building an intentional inclusive community of gamers for sport, conversation, and connection,” Kendra Davenport, president and CEO of Easterseals, said.

“We talk about community and relationships, and we think that’s really what this is all about at the end of the day,” said Jack Vandervelde, Co-Founder of Oxygen Esports and owner of Helix eSports in Foxborough, MA.

The first event from Oxygen Esports in collaboration with ES Gaming is the July 15th Boston Uprising vs. Houston Outlaws watch party in Foxborough, MA.
