According to Gerry Soler, Head of Globe Games and Esports, the event is part of Globe’s continuing support to build and serve the growing community, be that the for the competitive and hardcore gamers, or the casual fanbases in the Philippines. “Esports is now a full fledged competitive sport – even here in the Philippines.
