Singtel’s PVP Esports is back once again for its 2020 edition of their regional Community Championships, and it is bigger and better than ever before with two seasons and more games.
With S$100,000 up for grabs for the entire year, it’s time to take part in one of the biggest shifts in sports and live entertainment.
Esports has been steadily rising in terms of popularity and renown around Southeast Asia, and the time to play your favourite games for the chance to win from a sweet prize pool is now. PVP Esports is powered by Singapore’s telco juggernaut as esports and gaming are the key areas in which the company is pivoting towards.
Both this year’s regional community leagues are catered towards the workforce and student gamers, titled PVP Esports Corporate Championship and PVP Esports Campus Championship, each with their own prize pools to be won. As a regional competition, the country winners for each game will also get to represent their motherland at the regional Grand Finals at the end of Season 1.
Those taking part in Singapore’s PVP Esports Campus Championship Mobile Legends Bang Bang competition will be competing for a combined prize pool of S$10,000, and teams competing in the PVP Esports Corporate Championship will stand to win prizes from a combined prize pool of S$18,000 across DOTA 2, Mobile Legends Bang Bang, and PUBG Mobile.
