SIBOL assembling SEA Games squads

SIBOL has started its registration for those who want to represent the country in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games in Phnom Penh from 5 to 17 May.

SIBOL general manager Leo Andrew “Jab” Escutin said their selection process is now in full swing in a bid to form competitive squads that will compete in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Playerunknown’s Battleground: Mobile, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Crossfire and Valorant, which will be making its debut in the biennial meet.

“The Sibol National Selection is back and we are going full swing this year. We will have a significant number of national events to showcase our Philippine Esports athletes for 2023,” Escutin said, hinting at the possibility of tapping players instead of teams.

“With the sheer number of national events this year, we want to remind players that are registering to please keep in mind the dates of each national event and the obligations they have to fulfill as Philippine Esports athletes.”

Sibol opted to tap professional players in the previous SEA Games with three-time Mobile Legends Professional League Philippines champion Blacklist International at the forefront of the country’s Esports campaign.

The Sibol experiment was a success as the Philippines also won a gold medal in League of Legends: Wild Rift women’s division and two silver medals in Crossfire and League of Legends, respectively.

“This is the best opportunity for aspiring Esports athletes to showcase their talents competing against the best of the best in the country for a chance to represent our nation on the biggest Esports stages in the world,” Escutin stated.
