And now, some words from Youth & Sports Minister Syed Saddiq following this major announcement which will hopefully not be used against him in the future:

“We are here for our athletes. [I]t’s about time for all Malaysians to take eSports seriously and treat eSports players as athletes like in any other sports. Now those who play eSports as kids will aspire for something bigger.”

“My first hope is for them to make Malaysia proud when they represent Malaysia in the SEA Games. We find their performance to be very impressive and I am very confident that they will bring home many medals for Malaysia, and can dispel the negative perceptions placed onto those who are active in the e-sports field.”

“I think this is the way forward for them to break the negative perceptions faced by e-sports athletes in Malaysia, because when they carry the Malaysian flag, they become national athletes. The heroes and heroines of the nation who must be respected and helped as best possible.”


“I think in South-east Asia, we look good, but we need to work a lot harder to be an Asian superpower. Not Asean, but Asia.”

“If you look at China, they have Tencent and they have Ali Baba, and many more. In Malaysia, we need to start cultivating our e-sports industries, giving full support to them and at the same time the sports side of e-sports, should work collectively together with the industry.”
