Committed to putting Philippine esports on the map, Globe has recently renewed its partnership with the country’s leading esports agency, Mineski Philippines. The leveled-up collaboration focuses on the improvement of two key aspects namely, Liyab Esports and the Philippine Pro Gaming League.
Professional esports team Liyab Esports is one of the highlights of the Globe and Mineski partnership. After debuting last year, the team composed of the most promising local esports athletes went on to compete in various regional tournaments and even bagged a gold medal at the 2019 Southeast Asian Games for Starcraft II. Under the renewed partnership, Team Liyab will further be expanded by adding a team for League of Legends Wild Rift--- Riot’s upcoming MOBA based on the popular League of Legends franchise.
PPGL, on the other hand, is considered to be the biggest multi-platform esports league in the country. Globe and Mineski plan to make the league bigger and better by adding community leagues and continuing to build on relevant esports titles and emerging games.
“Our partnership has been very fruitful for both Mineski and Globe,” shares Jil Bausa-Go, VP for Get Entertained Tribe at Globe. “It is a journey marked with milestones which helped make Liyab, PPGL and our continuing vision for Philippine esports grow stronger and more resilient.”
Ronald Robins, Founder and CEO of Mineski Global echoes this excitement for renewed ties with the telco giant: “This is definitely an exciting new chapter for us, and we are happy to have our partners at Globe remain steadfast and committed in accelerating our efforts to grow the esports industry. Unfazed by the current situation, our collaboration pledges to further promote the importance of esports, and the communities that support it in both the local and global stages.”
