Jakarta - Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno opened the grand final of the 2022 Esports Presidential Cup at Istora Senayan here on Friday.

The competition was held from November 11–13, 2022.

He said he expects the competition to not only improve athletes’ achievement, but also encourage the development of the local gaming ecosystem.

Uno lauded the 2022 Esports Presidential Cup for featuring more local games, as this aligned with the growth of the gaming industry in the country.

"Last year, there were two local games. This year, there were three local games. Indonesia's gaming industry has lucrative potential," he noted at a press conference after the opening here on Friday.

"In 2021, the application and gaming sub-sector’s revenue increased 9.17 percent with the projection of Rp31.25 trillion. In 2022, it increased to above 10–15 percent," he said.

This year's tournament featured three local games, two of which were featured last year, namely Lokapala and the Battle of Satria Dewa. The third local game was the Battle of Guardians.

Head of business partnerships for Battle of Satria Dewa's developer, Haryadinata, said that the game's development has improved ever since it was featured at last year's Presidential Cup.

"We expect to be proud if our game is compared to overseas games," he remarked.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Battle of Guardians' developer, Alexander Andrew Halim, is seeking to develop the game, hold small- to large-scale gaming tournaments, and have the game featured in the 2023 Presidential Cup.

Meanwhile, Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture's sport achievement improvement assistant deputy, Gatot Hendrarto, urged athletes to improve their quality and work together to encourage the public to play local games.

"We expect that local games can be featured starting with the SEA Games, then Asian Games, and so on," he said.

The grand final of the 2022 Esports Presidential Cup was held in a hybrid offline-online format with stringent as well as comprehensive application of the health protocols.

In addition to local games, the 2022 Esports Presidential Cup also featured Free Fire, Mobile Legends Bang-Bang (MLBB), and PUBG Mobile.

Athletes vied for a total prize pool of Rp2 billion and the chance to compete in the IESF World Championship in Bali at the start of December.

C Lombok, NTB - State-run Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation’s (ITDC’s) digital platform, Xplorin, has sold 30,510 tickets for the World Superbike (WSBK) racing event at Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit as of D-1.

The competition will be held from November 11–13, 2022.

The tickets sold so far consist of second-day pass tickets (6,981 tickets) and third-day pass tickets (23,529 tickets), an Xplorin official, Norman Haka Sulaiman, said at the circuit here on Thursday.

"It is still possible that the number will increase, since offline and online ticket sales will still be open during the (D-Day of the) WSBK at Mandalika (circuit)," he added.

He informed that 70 percent of the 30,510 tickets have been purchased by residents of Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) province.

"We really appreciate it because 70 percent of the people watching it (the racing event) will be NTB people," he remarked.

Meanwhile, other buyers are from Bali, several regions of Java, as well as other countries, the official said.

"There are many spectators who come from Bali because, considering the transportation access, Bali is closer to Lombok,” he explained.

Furthermore, he said that there will be several overseas spectators from Malaysia and Australia, although their number will be few.

Based on the ticket sales for the 2022 WSBK so far, there has been an increase in the number of spectators from NTB province compared to the first implementation of the racing event in 2021, Sulaiman noted.

One of the reasons is that the committee is providing a 50-percent discount for local residents, he added.

"We focus more on local spectators, thus they can (have a bigger opportunity to) experience the atmosphere of the circuit," he said.

Earlier, the president director of Indonesian MotoGP and WSBK promoter Mandalika Grand Prix Association (MGPA), Priandhi Satria, had informed that all racers and crews participating in WSBK had arrived in Mandalika, NTB, on Wednesday (November 9, 2022).
