It was the first-ever HADO championships that paid seats were available, resulting that 364 seats were sold out to the excited fans to the maximum capacity of 300. Regarding viewing sports, this had emphasized a big potential in this field of technology sports.

HADO SPRING CUP 2019: Outcomes
In the HADO SPRING CUP 2019, 8 teams competed against each other, including 4 teams ranked in the top four in the world and the other 4 teams qualified from the preliminary tournaments. Here are the results:
Top 3 teams are:

2nd (Prize 300,000yen) :Wacha Gona People
3rd (Prize 150,000yen) :ANATSUCHI
Wacha Wacha People, currently the Japan’s top-ranked team, had shined to the second straight champion followed by the WORLD CUP held at the end of last year.
However, the final game between Wacha Wacha People and Wacha Gona People was a close one, going into an additional time, which had given us an impression that the two teams were being close to even.
Also, it was the first time that ANATSUCHI made it to the second runner-up due to the team’s steady improvement, when their further leap in the next season is highly anticipated.
The competitions had a lot of viewers through a live streaming on Youtube.
