President University (PresUniv) opened its biggest annual sporting event, Sport Olympiad President University (SOPU). Unlike SOPU in previous years which was held offline, SOPU 2021 was held virtually.
Approximately 3,250 students attended the SOPU 2021 competition.
The switch from offline to online made the types of competition contested change too. If previously it involved many physical activities, such as futsal, basketball, volleyball, and triathlon, now it has changed to e-Sports Competition, like Valorant, Dota 2, Mobile Legends, Point Blank, Stumble Guys, PUBG, and Chess.com.
Prof. Dr. Jony Oktavian Haryanto, Rector of PresUniv, supported the implementation of SOPU 2021. “I hope SOPU 2021 will be beneficial for all participants including the supporters. Please support each other. Have fun, and good luck to all participants and supporters.” said Prof Jony in his opening speech in SOPU 2021.
Anthony Emmanuel, Chief Executive of SOPU 2021, hopes that the euphoria from the match can be maintained until SOPU 2021 ends. “This is the first time SOPU will use the online concept. I am very thankful for all of the committee who have worked hard to create SOPU 2021 and hope that the competition can run smoothly and the enthusiasm of the participants will last until it finishes,” said Anthony.
