NYC partners Redd+E on engaging Youth through esports

Youths who are into gaming and esports in Singapore, there is a series of community esports being organised to engage young players based in Singapore. The National Youth Council (NYC) has recently forged a partnership with Redd+E, the esports arm of Reddentes Sports, on engaging youth through esports.

Through this series of community esports tournaments, youths in Singapore are in for a treat, the Stay Home Challenge Breaker series will feature the three game titles, FIFA20, Legends of Runeterra and Valorant. These tournaments will be streamed “live” on Cr8 Studio SG Facebook Page.

“While Singapore gears towards the post-circuit breaker measures to resume activities safely, we should not let our guard down and there is also a need to continue engaging our youth purposefully. The Stay Home Challenge Breaker will give our young community players an opportunity to hone their skills and stand a chance to play against some of our local esports influencers or celebrities,” said Mr Yip Ren Kai, Managing Director of Redd+E.

“Esports’ ever-growing popularity among youth has made it an inevitable part of youth engagement today. Through the Stay Home Challenge Breaker, we hope to gather like-minded youth digitally and encourage them to continue to stay home, avoid crowds and socialise online as far as possible,” said Mr Christopher Pragasam, Assistant Chief Executive of NYC.

“More importantly, we want to remind youth the right values and behaviours, and to mitigate any negative aspects of this popular youth interest such as cyber-bullying and gaming addiction,” Mr Pragasam added.

The Stay Home Challenge Breaker tournament is scheduled to take place from:

  • 28th May to 30th May – FIFA 20
  • 6th June to 7th June – Legends of Runeterra
  • 13th June to 14th June – Valorant
  • 23rd July to 26th July – Valorant / League of Legends
