The Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL) will crown its first ever Call of Duty: Mobile (CODM) and MARVEL Super War (MSW) champions in the grand finals on July 31 and Aug. 1.
Sixteen teams from Rules of Survival Mobile (ROS Mobile), and four teams each from CODM and MSW will battle for a Php910,000 cash prize.
The PPGL is the country’s biggest multi-game esports league, organized by Mineski Esports and Globe, and presented by Tostas. It will stream the grand finals on July 31 and August 1 on its Facebook page.
In a bid to further promote grassroots esports development in the Philippines, the Youth Esports Program (YEP) has announced a partnership with global game developer and publisher Riot Games Southeast Asia.
Mineski Philippines launched YEP in February. It aims to develop grassroots esports talent in the Philippines through student initiatives. Through this partnership, students that are part of YEP will gain access to Riot’s speakers through workshops and career talks, participation in activities organized by the publisher, and other support for student initiatives. Among these initiatives are weekly Legends of Runeterra tournaments for YEP chapter orgs, VALORANT content contests, and more.
“The Philippines has always been one of our most important markets and we have been consistently blown away by the passion and talent discovered within the community here. We are excited to partner with the Youth Esports Program and to support their efforts in nurturing the next generation of esports and game industry professionals,” Chris Tran, Head of Esports for Riot Games Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, said in a press statement.
