The news was announced via the VIRESA website and highlighted by Joebert Yu, deputy secretary general at the Philippine Electronic Sports Organization (PESO).

The SEA Games will take place at the National Convention Center in Hanoi, Vietnam, from November 21st to December 2nd 2021.

The SEA Games is a biennial multi-sport event involving participants from the current 11 countries of Southeast Asia.

The games are under the regulation of the Southeast Asian Games Federation, with supervision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA).

The IOC has been looking into esports in recent years and the possibility of including esports as medal events at the Olympics. It has also put together an esports committee. For now it seems the concensus is to keep abreast of esports and potentially include it as a side activity at future Olympics events.

The next Olympics event, Tokyo 2020, had been delayed to this year due to the global pandemic.
