SINGAPORE – MAINCARD will be hosting the 32nd SEA Games VALORANT watch party supported by Riot Games for Team Singapore. The biennial event held in Cambodia this year will take place from May 5-17.
Esports as a category will make an appearance for the third time in SEA Games, and VALORANT will be featured for the first time. MAINCARD will be hosting an official watch party on May 10 for the VALORANT finals. This event is co-organised with *SCAPE and supported by Riot Games.
Esports is a newly-introduced category in the biennial SEA Games and has been played competitively since its inaugural edition at the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines, following its demonstration at the 2018 SEA Games in Indonesia. In the 2019 SEA Games, esports was recognised as an official medal event in an International Olympic Committee-sanctioned event. Some of the games included this year are League of Legends: Wild Rift and VALORANT.
