Mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has teamed up with Eplayment Entertainment for ‘Liga Adarna: Laban Para Sa Korona,’ an all-female esports league running from Aug. 16 to Sept. 17, 2020 in support of COVID-19 initiatives.
Spearheaded by Eplayment Entertainment, the first esports multi-platform in the Philippines, the league features various esports and mobile gaming events including Valorant, DOTA 2, and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang with a total of Php 140,000 cash prize pool and the coveted Liga Adarna Crown up for grabs.
Interested participants may register online starting Aug. 10 through Mogul Arena. All games will be live-streamed on Liga Adarna’s official Facebook page.
Empowering Connected Filipinas
This all-female esports league is in line with Smart’s ‘Connected Filipina’ advocacy to put the spotlight on remarkable women who are embracing digital technology in various fields and inspire more Filipinas to do the same.
The new normal has particularly seen women connect more to digital means in order to perform multiple roles as homemakers, breadwinners, teachers, and entrepreneurs all at once.
Since March, Smart has also backed a series of Mobile Legends tournaments such as the MPL Pro League in support of COVID-19 frontliners and affected communities.
