Sony Interactive Entertainment To Organize PlayStation®4 Street Fighter V Asia Amateur Tournament At GameStart Asia 2016
Singapore, 23rd September 2016 – Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) is making its first steps in Singapore into competitive e-sports by hosting the inaugural PlayStation®4 Street Fighter V Asia Amateur Tournament which will take place at this year’s GameStart Asia and run from 7 to 9 October 2016 at Suntec Convention Centre, Hall 405 and 406.




Sony Interactive Entertainment’s participation in GameStart Asia 2016 also marks its first concerted effort to reach out to youths to promote and support competitive gaming potential in the region.

Mr. Hidetoshi Takigawa, Southeast Asia Regional Head of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said: “There are many tournaments for professional gamers but very little opportunities for amateur gamers who want to hone their skills and test their mettle against other gamers. We hope our participation can help build a community of gamers and nurture the next-generation of gamers in the region to engage in fun and compelling e-sports and gaming competition.”

The PS4 Street Fighter V Asia Amateur Tournament sees sixteen players — three players representing Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China, and one wild card qualifier who can qualify at GameStart Asia itself, battle it out for a total prize pool of USD 6,000 in a double elimination bracket.

The event will also see elite participants compete in the Capcom Pro Tour South East Major 2016, Guilty Gear Xrd Relevator tournament and King of Fighters XIV tournament.

The Guilty Gear Xrd Relevator tournament will see competitors fight it out to win the chance to represent South East Asia in a match against Korea’s winning representative. The eventual winner of the South East Asia and Korea match will then secure a slot to compete in the Guilty Gear Xrd Relevator Tournament which will be held in Japan.

The winner of the King of Fighters XIV tournament will also represent Southeast Asia to participate in the SNK King of Fighter Japan Championships, with a chance to compete with the top KOF XIV players from around the globe in the exclusive The King of Fighters XIV “KOF XIV World Championship 2017”.
