Globe Telecom (Globe) and AcadArena renew their partnership to further support the growth of student gamers in the Philippines and solidify the country’s position among regional and global esports giants.

“Globe is proud to renew our commitment to support AcadArena and its projects. We are one in the belief that the esports scene starts with the youth. We aim to develop and pioneer more programs, more competitive events, and more engagement for our esports stakeholders in the collegiate esports scene,” said Ralph Aligada, Head of Globe Games and Esports. “Globe has been with us since day one. With their support, the world is kinder to student gamers who are still hit hard by the pandemic,” said Ariane Lim, Co-Founder, and Co-CEO of AcadArena.

The partnership encompasses the esports and education content in AcadArena where students can develop the skills they need in the esports industry through various programs, modules, and access to industry professionals. AcadArena also delivers collegiate-level tournaments across varying skill sets and titles.

To help student gamers and esports enthusiasts, Globe also offers relevant data packages, esports team sponsorships, expanded grassroots activities, and nationwide leagues support. The telco giant also joined hands with Blacklist International recently as it strives to be at the forefront of the games and esports ecosystem in the Philippines.
