China on Friday issued a notice to solicit opinions on banning minors from e-sports hotels.

E-sports hotels are like regular hotels but set up with gaming computers and fast internet so guests can spend their time playing video games.

The notice, drafted by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Ministry of Public Security and a State Council leading group on the protection of minors, aims at promoting the protection of minors and the healthy and orderly development of the industry.

The new rules would strictly prohibit e-sports hotels from accepting minors.

The new rules would say e-sports hotels should not allow minors to enter professional e-sports hotels, and e-sports areas in non-professional e-sports hotels, the notice said.
