Mineski, AcadArena to Bring Wild Rift Esports Events to PH
Posted by Yuri Mangahas December 15, 2020

Since its open beta release, League of Legends: Wild Rift has taken the smartphone gaming market by storm, and Riot Games is now primed to capitalize on that momentum as the company unveils its esports plans for professional and collegiate teams in 2021.

Wild Rift esports will kick off with several smaller, intermittent competitive events from January through March to give viewers a taste of the budding talent and teams in the region. In April, this will transition into eight location-specific tournament circuits, where teams will compete for the title of local champion. 

Once local champions have been crowned, they will compete against other local champions at a cross-Southeast Asia level. 

Riot tapped the services of Mineski Philippines to hold professional Wild Rift esports tournaments in the country. The esports giant also signed an agreement with Mineski and AcadArena to bring the game’s competitive scene to the collegiate circuit.

Aside from the two aforementioned companies, Riot also signed agreements with the following firms to host Wild Rift esports events in Asia:

  •     ONE Up for Indonesia Esports and Collegiate
  •     ESL for Malaysia Esports
  •     The Gaming Company for Malaysia Collegiate
  •     PGL and Eliphant for Singapore Esports and Collegiate
  •     Cyber Games Arena for Taiwan Esports
  •     Taiwan Mobile and Bowl Cut Entertainment for Taiwan Collegiate
  •     ESL for Thailand Esports and Collegiate   
  •     VNG for Vietnam Esports and Collegiate

”We knew that players were eager and ready for Wild Rift competition. In 2021, we’re focusing on laying the foundations of our long-term commitment to Wild Rift esports in Southeast Asia. We’re looking forward to delivering memorable experiences alongside the region’s top esports organizations over the course of the year.” said Chris Tran, Head of Esports at Riot Games Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
