The Ministry of Sports in Sri Lanka has declared Esports as an official sport in the country. Sri Lanka has thus become the first country in the South Asian region to officially recognise Esports as a sport. The declaration comes as the result of over a decade long effort of the Sri Lanka Esports Association (SLESA).
The National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOCSL) had already endorsed Esports in Sri Lanka with their show of support for Sri Lanka’s participation in the 18th Asian Games, where Esports was included as a demonstration sport.
