The Philippine esports industry has received a major boost with the entry of global smart device brand OPPO into the mobile gaming space. As part of its initiatives for 2021, OPPO is supporting the biggest mobile gaming tournaments in the Philippines: the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League and the Philippine leg of the 2021 League of Legends: Wild Rift SEA Icon Series.

“Gaming is a major source of leisure among younger Filipino consumers, with 74% of the country’s online population engaged in mobile gaming. OPPO is fully committed to support the growing esports industry by providing both pro gamers and amateur gamers with the best gaming platforms and mobile phones that can provide them an excellent mobile gaming experience,” said OPPO Philippines Marketing Director Raymond Xia in a press statement.

Partnership with Mineski

With OPPO’s latest smartphones, namely the A92 and the all-new Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G, the company aims to provide the best and most immersive mobile gameplay.

OPPO has also unveiled an exciting lineup of events in the coming months, including other mobile game tournaments under the Youth Esports Program, and many more for the rest of the gaming community nationwide.

This venture is made possible with OPPO’s partnership with esports authority Mineski. Through this collaboration, OPPO’s leadership in smartphone innovations and Mineski’s expertise on esports and gaming will help accelerate the growth of the thriving esports industry in the Philippines. 

“Our partnership with OPPO is a big step forward in our thrust to deliver excellence to Filipino gamers. OPPO’s support for our leagues ensures that gamers from different walks of life will experience professional-level esports in every level of competition,” said Mineski Philippines Country Manager Mark Navarro.

Apart from this, OPPO also sponsors Liyab Esports. It has also signed on as the official sponsor of the National Interschool Cyber League, one of the main projects of Mineski’s YEP.
