Further details available on the Uniquely Singapore website states that this year’s Asian Championship will feature a US$15,000 (S$20,800) prize pool. Also, the number of countries involved will increase from 12 to 14. No mention was made of which were the two additional countries that will make their way to Singapore for the event.
The official who spoke to GameSync also revealed that the Asian Championship was indeed planned to be held in Malaysia, but a decision was made by the overall organizers, ICM International, to host the regional event in Singapore instead.
