The Superchallenge representative as the organizer who initiated this competition, Dhanny Winata Hoeniarto, said that the qualifying round Super Sports Series Season 1 is predicted to be exciting and full of surprises in every match. The reason is, all participants are amateur (non-professional) players and cannot detect the opponent’s strength from the start.
“Because this competition is aimed at amateur players and the community so there are no professional players involved, the map of each team’s strength is difficult to detect from the start. Of course there will be many surprises that will happen. We see many communities in the area that have potential capabilities,” said Dhanny.
