John Bryan Ulanday - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Sibol, the bemedalled Philippine esports squad, yesterday kickstarted its own preparation for the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi this May with registration and tryouts for the national team selection.

Powered by SMART Communications, Sibol launched a nationwide search for players in Arena of Valor, Free Fire, League of Legends and FIFA Online after beginning the national tournament for other events last week.

One of those is the gold medal-favorite Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), which the country dominated in 2019 when esports was launched as an official SEA Games medal event.

Sibol is already in the second phase of the MLBB national team selection process with eight squads left led by world champion Blacklist International, Onic Philippines and SMART Omega Esports.
