 “It is our great honor to support the best Filipino esports athletes as they continue to prove to the world that we have the talent, skill, and drive to dominate this rapidly growing sport. Smart will continue to support the dreams of these young athletes and help them achieve glory for the Philippines on the international stage,”

Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart

PESO, under the Olympic Committee, also recognizes the role of the government and partners for growth in this sector.

 “This is a historical feat for Philippine esports. Our 54-strong SIBOL delegation — including the first all-female team — for SEA Games is one of the biggest in the country. This was made possible with the support of the government and industry partners who paved the way and made this dream a reality,”

Marlon Marcelo, PESO Interim Executive Director

 “PESO is committed to further strengthening esports development within our country and our competitiveness abroad. We have gathered the top athletes in every game category to become SIBOL representatives. We look forward to achieving great success in repeating our 2019 medal results,”

Brian Lim, PESO President

Smart is helping SIBOL achieve its quest for gold by opening the doors of the Smart SIBOL Training Ground to the team. The facility features the latest connectivity innovations along with supporting SIBOL in the training boot camp to ensure they are ready before heading to Vietnam.
