Singapore Sports Hub partners with Team Flash to support the growth of esports

Singapore Sports Hub partners with Team Flash to support the growth of esports
March 12, 2019

Singapore Sports Hub and Singapore’s premier esports organisation, Team Flash, are collaborating on a professional esports training facility to develop local emerging talent in esports. This is in view of Singapore’s participation in this year’s SEA Games in Philippines and the next Asian Games 2022 in Hangzhou, China.

The provision of a structured and conducive environment is considered to help the athletes focus on their training regime so as to develop local emerging talents to excel in esports.

With this partnership, Singapore Sports Hub will be the first predominant sports venue to support a team-exclusive training facility with Team Flash as a key partner. The partnership also includes hosting regular workshops and community activations anchored around Sports Hub venues, highlighting the rising profile of national athletes in esports.

Adam Firth, Chief Commercial Officer of Singapore Sports Hub said “Singapore Sports Hub is always proud to be a part of our local sports ecosystem. We are looking forward to the exciting plans with Team Flash which includes providing a conducive environment for emerging local talents especially in the world of esports. Singapore Sports Hub will be the partner of choice to growing Singapore’s esports industry and building future national stars.

Terence Ting, Chief Executive & Founder of Team Flash added “We are truly excited to partner Singapore Sports Hub to develop the country’s top esports talent. Our strategic partnership will provide us with the essential infrastructure to execute our talent roadmap in this world-class venue with traditional athlete support for our esport athletes.”

In 2018, Singapore Sports Hub hosted the first Hyperplay (co-organised by Riot Games and MTV) and the AOV Valor Cup organised by the Singapore Cyber Sports Online Gaming Association (SCOGA).

Team Flash has achieved recognition for Singapore with multiple podium finishes at international esports tournaments. Their most significant achievement came at the EA Champions Cup last year, beating top Asia-Pacific countries including China, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia, and winning US$208,000 in team prize winnings.

Team Flash also enjoyed success on the regional front, with its Arena of Valor team from Vietnam coming in 2nd at the World Championships in Bangkok last year. Overall, Team Flash's esports athletes won an impressive US$350,000+ in prize money across all titles in 2018.

Some of the top esports athletes Team Flash have developed include Joseph “Zarate” Yeo and Amraan “Amraan” Gani, who both represented Singapore at the FIFA EWorld Cup, Global Playoffs in Amsterdam last year.
