ESL Gaming has announced that it will be operating the official League Of Legends Wild Rift esports tournaments in Malaysia and Thailand for 2021 and the official collegiate tournament in Thailand only, as the appointed partner of Riot Games Southeast Asia.
The official circuit will start in April 2021 with teams qualifying through an open qualifier system and competing over a period of three months for the title of the best team in their respective countries.
Each of the local champions will then move on to represent their country and compete in a Southeast Asia regional tournament.
ESL Gaming Asia-Pacific Japan Senior Vice President Nick Vanzetti said:
“The mobile esports market in Southeast Asia continues to grow at breakneck speed and we are excited to have Wild Rift in Malaysia and Thailand for 2021.
We are proud to expand our partnership with Riot Games with more titles and build up the Wild Rift esports ecosystem together with them in Malaysia and Thailand.”
Riot Games Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau Head Of Esports Chris Tran said:
“We are delighted that League of Legends: Wild Rift players and teams in Thailand and Malaysia will have a chance to showcase their talents on the local and regional stage.
In partnership with ESL, we look forward to bringing an exciting year of new legacies and team rivalries to passionate mobile MOBA esports audiences across these key markets.
Our collegiate tournaments in Thailand will also set the scene for up and coming MOBA competitors, with community-focused gaming experiences that everyone can enjoy.”
