The deciding grand finals will be held in Chongqing Olympic Sports Center. Chongqing’s government is doing its best to give the city a new atmosphere through a large number of eSports events.

WESG was established in 2016 by Alisports – a sports branch of Alibaba corp group. This competition employs the Olympic standard, emphasizing Chinese national pride and encouraging fans to join the competition. The reason why Alibaba is doing this is to attract a bigger number of young people to their main business, which is global online commerce.
