Cambodians ready for battle in e-sports comp

Cambodia’s well-drilled soldiers are ready to battle for glory in the Mission Against Terror (MAT) International Championship 2016, which pits the best of e-sports from six countries against each other in the Indonesian capital Jakarta over the next six days and starts today.

The fledgling E-Sports Federation of Cambodia held a media conference at the NOCC headquarters yesterday to announce the Kingdom’s much anticipated plunge into this techno spectacle in a sport that is gaining much traction among the youth all over the ASEAN region and China.

Cambodia will be pitching in both the individual and team events. The six-member Cambodian team is hoping for good returns from an event that has been dominated by MAT troops from China and Malaysia.
