Mineski Global signed a landmark contract in their headquarters at San Juan City last Feb. 7 with the Philippine Collegiate Champions League to create a sustainable, consistent, and widely accessible esports program exclusively for Philippine schools and universities.
With the partnership, Mineski Global’s advocacy of responsible gaming, along with high-octane esports action will be in the spotlight. The PCCL-Mineski esports partnership also hopes to promote a sustainable esports community all over the Philippines.
“It’s time to show everyone that esports represent a viable career option, inclusive, and that it should be accorded the same treatment as regular sports. Both PCCL and Mineski are mindful of our responsibility to promote positive values through esports and games,” said Mineski Global CEO and founder, Ronald Robins, during the contract signing.
PCCL chairman, Reynaldo D. Gamboa, stated that the inclusion of esports at the recent SEA Games, where Filipino student-athletes performed well against the best gamers in the region, was an eye-opener. “Esports is another field in sports where Filipinos can excel and can win honors for the country in international competition. For this reason, the PCCL has included esports in its grassroots and school-based development program,” Gamboa added.
