More than just competing for gaming glory, the esports teams in the ULeague Mobile Legends Charity Clash Tournament are helping in the fight against COVID-19.
Scheduled on Sept. 16 and 17, the Championship Round of the charity tournament will be livestreamed on the ULeague Facebook page. Proceeds from the ULeague teams in the Charity Clash Tournament were given to COVID-19 initiatives of various nonprofits as a way for the esports and gaming community to help vulnerable communities cope with the pandemic.
“ULeague is a corporate league where companies, gamers, and professional esports athletes can engage in competition and promote the thriving esports industry. Esports is such an interesting industry and has seen tremendous growth in viewership and revenue in recent years,” said Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank) Vice Chairman Justo A. Ortiz in a press statement.
