WESG 2019 Chongqing Tekken 7 Invitational

Fresh off hosting the DOTA 2 Major at the start of 2019, Chongqing was yet again the venue for a major Esports event – the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) 2019. The Olympics-inspired event was aptly held at the Chongqing Olympic Sports Center throughout March and concluded last weekend (16-17 March).

Eliphant x BEast of the East was honoured to witness some high-level Tekken 7 action. The best male and female players around the world were invited to compete in an exhibition for cash and bragging rights 😀

No small feat prepping this 58,680 capacity stadium for an Olympics-style event.
They don’t do things small in China that’s for sure :O
