Clarence Chung, Board Director of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “We collaborated with CCTV late last year to host the GBA Sim Racing Grand Prix 2020 – The National Final for the first time in Macau at City of Dreams, drawing the attention of e-Sports fans from across the country. We are pleased to now co-organize the World University Cyber League 2021 – Finals with Tencent Sports and look forward to bringing another wonderful international e-Sports event to the city to support Macau’s economic diversification.”
