Yes Media is pleased to announce that after several months exploring alternative retail locations, we have signed with Cyberport (cyberport.hk), to build an Esports hub at the one-million square foot technology park built and administered by the Hong Kong Government.
Entitled “AOE” - Area of Effect - the Esports hub comprises 4 levels of training, competition area, television and streaming production studio, and incubation. It is understood to be the first integrated Esports center of its kind in the world.
Project design is underway and slated to be operational in the Fall of 2018.
AOE will leverage off the extensive television and media network across Asia established by its founders, who previously founded and operated pay TV and streaming sports media platforms including ASN-Sports Illustrated, a top-tier American sports channel (NFL, NHL, NCAA, NASCAR) broadcast in ten Asian markets.
AOE Cyberport is the first venue in a robust plan to roll out similar venues across the region. More news to come.
