Telecommunications company Globe Telecom has renewed its partnership with Southeast Asian esports agency Mineski Philippines.
The renewed collaboration will see the two parties focus on esports team Liyab Esports and the Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL).
The Youth Esports Program launched in February in partnership with the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) with the intention to legitimise esports and integrate it into the sports schemes of schools across the Philippines. Riot Games get involved with the program back in July.
Jil Bausa-Go of Globe commented on the renewal in a release: “Our partnership has been very fruitful for both Mineski and 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.”
Liyab Esports was created as part of the partnership between Mineski and Globe. The renewed partnership will see the organisation acquire a roster to compete on League of Legends: Wild Rift, Riot Games’ mobile title.
Ronald Robins, Founder and CEO of Mineski Global, also spoke on the renewal: “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.”
“The continuation of this partnership will see the continued support of both Liyab E-sports and the PPGL, despite the lack of live events taking place this year, which is a great thing.“
