After successfully hosting the Men’s Hockey World Cup last year, the city gets another opportunity to play host to eSports FIFA U-19 qualifier tournament. The two-day event started at the Kalinga Stadium Complex on Saturday. The tournament, a single-elimination format, will see 130 players taking part.
eSports made a buzz when it was included as a medal event in the 2018 Asian Games, with India bagging a bronze medal. Junk Think Sports is organising the event and its CMO and founder John Zaidi is surprised by the response it got from the state.
