ULeague Mobile Legends Charity Clash Tournament hits finale this 16-17 September!

09/13/2020 01:53:08 PM

Top eSports teams will collide for the upcoming Championship Round of the ULeague Mobile Legends Charity Clash Tournament this coming Wednesday and Thursday.

For two days (16 and 17 September 2020), ULeague will conclude its fully online Charity Clash Tournament featuring the popular game Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a campaign that has been taking place during this quarantine period. 

Prior to staging the finale, four qualifying rounds were held featuring teams from several companies, including Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank), its subsidiaries CitySavings Bank, UBX and PETNET Inc., as well as UnionBank’s fintech partners including, XLOG, PDAX, Data Analytics Ventures, Inc. (DAVI), DragonPay, Salarium, Banana Fintech, and EOI Digital. 

Proceeds from participating companies in the Charity Clash Tournament were given to COVID-19 initiatives of various non-profits as a way for the eSports and gaming community to help vulnerable communities cope with the pandemic. Specifically, they have pledged a donation that will go to non-profit organizations including Caritas Manila’s Oplan Damayan and Contra COVID-19 program as well as Kalipay Negrese Foundation’s distance learning program for children affected by the ongoing pandemic.

The winners and runner ups from the previous rounds have earned a spot in the Championship where they will compete for a cash prize of Php 30,000.

Seeing the tremendous growth and community engagement around eSports, UnionBank spearheaded the creation of ULeague together with the Distributed Ledger Technology Association of the Philippines (DLTAP), Fintech Philippines Association (FPH), Tech Up Pilipinas Inc. and UnionBank’s online donation and payment collection platform called Ushare.

“ULeague is a corporate league where companies, gamers and professional eSports athletes can engage in competition and promote the thriving eSports industry. ESports is such an interesting industry and has seen tremendous growth in viewership and revenue in recent years,” said Justo A. Ortiz, UnionBank Vice-Chairman. 

This gaming league was established after the bank realized many employees were avid gamers and held internal tournaments to engage them, build camaraderie, and understand the wider gaming community. Seeing much interest and positive feedback, UnionBank created ULeague as a way of sharing the experience with its partners and other corporates. 

“The pandemic made us adjust to executing the tournament to be purely online, and we were able to do so while still keeping the spirit of competition and sportsmanship,” Ortiz added.
