We also have some statements from the VP of Astro Sports Business, Lee Choong Khay, and the Territory Head of Fox Networks Group Malaysia, Vineet Puri, about their joined foray into esports through FIFA 18.
2018 is an exciting year for football fans and we’re glad to kick off the year with the Virtuelle Bundesliga Southeast Asia Qualifier, co-organised with FOX Sports Asia, to look for the top FIFA 18 player in South East Asia. This tournament is in line with eGG Network’s aspiration to champion esports in the region, serving as a platform to entertain and engage with passionate fans and gamers. Meanwhile, we also applaud the move by the National Sports Council (MSN) to set up a new unit to promote esports in Malaysia. eGG Network aims to play its role in discovering and developing a new generation of esports athletes to represent Malaysia at the 2022 Asian Games.
With Southeast Asia being the fastest growing region in the world for esports, we are glad that FOX Sports in Malaysia, and eGG Network are playing an active part in fuelling this growth, and taking esports in this region to the next level. The joint-organisation of the Virtuelle Bundesliga Southeast Asia Qualifier is just a start of our esports initiative, and we are confident that it will be the catalyst for future partnerships, which will take esports to new heights here in Malaysia, and also to the region.Vineet Puri
