Southern District National Day eSports Carnival

The Hong Kong government is considering developing the Cyberport into an eSports centre, with the shopping mall turning into an eSports hall. The objective is to provide an iconic and well-equipped venue for the rapidly growing e-Sports industry, to help nurture talents, and to assist the development of the industry.


To further promote eSports culture and allow the public to know more about Hong Kong eSports in a fun way, the Organising Committee for the Celebration of the 69th National Day in the Southern District will be organising a “Southern District National Day eSport Carnival” on 23 September. Professional teams will be there to show their top-notch gaming skills, including G-REX Gaming, Edward Slime, TOYZ, Bella Gor, Deer Chan and PandaCute. The audience will also have the opportunity to play against these teams and win a prize. In addition, there will be interactive games for the public to enjoy the fun, including eSports games, retro electronic games, AR games, etc. Everyone is welcome to join.


KOLs will be invited to onsite sharing sessions to share their thoughts on topics around eSports development, career opportunities such as gaming hosts, commentators, analysts, coaches, experience in organising and promoting eSports competitions, as well as how they became professional eSports players.


Special transport arrangement:
Shuttle buses going to Cyberport will be available from 11:30 am – 4 pm at Wong Chuk Hang MTR Station and Nam Ning Street, Aberdeen.
