eSports is now a medal sport!

The eleven country international sporting event is making a history where eSports will be recognized as a medal sport for the first time. This is the result of over a year effort of Razer's co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan who has led the rally to elevate eSports to a recognized medal event at SEA Games 2019.

Esports is currently the go-to entertainment choice for youth and millennials. There are more than 2.3 billion gamers worldwide, and 71 percent of millennials are proud to call themselves gamers. The global eSports audience is expected to reach 276 million by 2022, and esports itself is projected to be a billion-dollar industry by next year.

The inclusion of eSports as a medal sport in the SEA Games 2019 is a vital step in legitimizing eSports as a true world-class sporting contest. 

Razer will be facilitating discussions between PhilSGOC and various game publishers to select the games that will be featured at the SEA Games esports tournament. Razer will also be supporting the final crop of Team Philippines esports athletes who will represent the host country at the finals.

The first game partner that Razer and PhilSGOC are announcing for the SEA Games 2019 is Moonton, the publisher behind the hugely popular title Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. The other game partners will be announced in the following months.
