The World Cyber Games Committee considers numerous factors when selecting each year’s host city, including geography, facilities, infrastructure and marketing plans. For 2009, Chengdu received the overall highest score due to the extensive support offered by local government, accessibility of the Grand Final venue, and high network potential of broadcasters. Chengdu is also the first Chinese city to train cyber gaming referees and mandate gaming venue standards.
Hyoung-Seok Kim, CEO of International Cyber Marketing, organizers of the World Cyber Games.
“Chengdu already has an incredible reputation for being one of the world’s elite cities when it comes to hosting video game competitions. We have no doubt that they will be a wonderful and exciting host city that provides World Cyber Games players and fans with a unique and amazing setting for the premiere event and competition.”
Chengdu is situated at the western edge of the Sichuan Basin. The climate is mild and humid. Chengdu is home to several key industries and markets in the people's Republic of China that are both significant for domestic and international markets. Chengdu has long been established as a national base for electronic and IT industry. Several key national electronic R&D institutes are located in Chengdu. Chengdu's Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone has attracted a variety of multinationals, including Intel, IBM, NOKIA, Alcatel, Motorola, SAP, and Microsoft, as well as domestic powerhouses such as Lenovo. Intel's Chengdu factory is its second one after its Shanghai factory in China and the first such large-scale foreign investment in electronic industry in interior mainland China.

I am still striving to prove that it doesn't matter which country a man is from to be good.
I am still believing that it's all about skills and respect.
Wish me luck ;)
