A 25 000 square foot esports complex called Cyber Games Arena opened in Hong Kong earlier this week. The facility cost USD 3,8 million to construct and intends to turn Hong Kong into a premier destination for growing talents in the esports industry.
The venue was built and named after the Hong Kong-based esports firm Cyber Games Arena (CGA), which was founded by three professional gamers in 2013. CGA was one of the first esports and entertainment companies in Hong Kong, aiming to promote esports development in Hong Kong. CGA provides comprehensive esports solutions with their own mega events, gamer platform and community, marketing and promotion strategy, event production capabilities, and tournament organizing experience.
The new esports complex consists of training centers, a competitive arena for up to 80 gamers, television broadcast and online streaming studios, as well as a retail area. Cyber Games Arena expects to attract 1,2 million visitors per year across more than 100 local and international esports competitions, according to the South China Morning Post.
According to the South China Morning Post, the hope is that new venues such as Cyber Games Arena will help train Hong Kong gamers to compete in the 2022 Asian Games, which will include esports as an official medal event.
