A new association has been launched in Singapore to bring local Esports and gaming to world stage.
The Singapore Games Association (SGGA), formerly Singapore Games Guild (SGG), officially launched with the mission of creating a sustainable local gaming and esports ecosystem as well as attract more esports events to the region.
SGGA is operating with support from Enterprise Singapore, Infocomm Media Development Authority and the Singapore Tourism Board. SGGA will serve as the sovereign city-state’s primary trade association for gaming and esports.
SGGA’s initiatives will begin by hosting an Industry Day on August 7-8 for local game professionals, as well as those hoping to enter the industry. In the third quarter of 2020, SGGA will launch its paid membership programme, which is open to all companies registered in Singapore, as well as Singapore-based individuals including freelancers.
The SGGA also announced the Singapore Esports initiative to establish industry-wide standards for hosting esports events and to celebrate the achievements of the Singaporean esports community.
