During the recently concluded Thailand Game Expo in Bangkok, Thailand, Singtel‘s PVP Esports has announced the return of it’s community league.
Titled as the PVP Esports Corporate Championship and PVP Esports Campus Championship, Singtel along with it’s associates AIS, Telkomsel, and Globe (for the Philippines), PVP Esports aims to provide two exciting seasons of competitive gaming by including more titles to their leagues.
PVP Esports has proven to be a great platform for gamers and enthusiasts from Southeast Asia to come together and engage in competitive play. The strong response to our 2019 leagues signals a demand for more high-quality community tournaments in the region, and this year, we are excited to expand our community leagues to give gamers even more opportunities to do what they love. Furthermore, the focus for our leagues this year will be healthy gaming and we will be working with our partners over the course of the year to ensure that our youths will continue to enjoy gaming as a wholesome activity. Together with our regional associates, we will continue to drive the growth of gaming and esports in the region and perhaps even uncover budding esports talent along the way!Arthur Lang, CEO of Singtel‘s International Group.
The 2020 PVP Esports Corporate and Campus Championships will run for two seasons from March to June (Season 1) and August to November (Season 2). Participants will play for a combined regional prize pool of over 100,000 SGD in cash and prizes – the largest prize pool globally for a community tournament. The campus league for tertiary students will be scaled up from a Singapore-based event to a regional one, just like the corporate league, which is open to working professionals.
Season 1 will feature popular game titles such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile and Dota 2, with more games to follow in Season 2. The top teams and players from Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand will also win cash prizes from their respective local qualifiers and get the opportunity to represent their countries at a Grand Finals event held regionally. For Season 1 of 2020, the Grand Finals will take place at the Indonesia Games Championship in July 2020, the largest gaming event in Indonesia.
Registration for the PVP Esports Corporate and Campus Championships (Singapore Qualifiers) will open on February 10, 2020. For more information and other updates, head here.
