Indian ESports teams at Asian Games: Here's what you need to know!

Hangzhou, China is geared up to host the Asian Games in September 2023! Originally, the Asian Games were scheduled for 2022. But this glamorous event was postponed due to the sudden COVID surge. And here is the good news for Indian E-Sports lovers: India will definitely be a part of the Asian Games!


Hangzhou has finalised seven games for this eSports medal event. They are:


  • DOTA 2 


  • League of Legends

  • Street Fighter V 

  • PUBG 

  • Arena of Valor 

  • Dream Three Kingdoms 


But there is some disappointing news as well. Here's what you need to know about it: 

Which ESports will India participate in? 


The E-Sports Federation of India (ESFI) revealed that India will NOT be a part of three e-sports in the Asian Games. These would be: 


  • PUBG ( Because it is banned in India ) 

  • Arena of Valor 

  • Dream Three Kingdoms


It is quite shocking, but a respectable decision by the ESFI. Nevertheless, the teams would still compete in the remaining eSports included in the Hangzhou Asian Games. The teams have been made, and the pro players are geared up!
