After many triumphs over the years, both parties in the Yoodo – Yoodo Gank partnership have announced an amicable end to their three-year-long successful partnership.
Yoodo first signed on to back the PUBG Mobile esports team, after they swept the championship trophy at PUBG Mobile National Championship (PMNC) 2018. Yoodo was also the Official Digital Telco at the tournament.
Through the three years together, the Yoodo Gank team have risen high and proven their mettle repeatedly and most notably in three championships (PMNC 2018, Selangor Cyber Cup 2019, PMPL SEA 2020) emerging as a force to be reckoned with amongst the PUBG Mobile community. With Yoodo’s strong support, the team expanded their influence further through the Yoodo esports community and various marketing and publicity initiatives, creating a formidable brand presence.
One of the most memorable moments for both parties includes Yoodo Gank’s historic, record-setting first place win at the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) Southeast Asia (SEA) 2020, a first in Malaysian history that also earned the team an accolade in The Malaysia Book of Records.
Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo expressed his best wishes for the Gank team as they move forward in their new direction:
“After nearly three years of success and growth, it’s time for both Yoodo and the Gank team to move on and continue to grow in our desired directions respectively.
We’re proud of everything we have achieved together throughout the years, including the team’s historic win at PMPL SEA in 2020.
Yoodo remains committed to supporting the esports community and we will continue to cheer on the Gank team from afar.”
He added that announcing the Yood Gank team was one of Yoodo’s first forays into the esports world and since then Yoodo has grown into a powerhouse in the gaming segment through various initiatives – the support of Yoodo Gank being one such example.
“Yoodo remains committed to uplifting and supporting the local esports community. Stay tuned as we unveil more exciting announcements this year.”
Commenting on the announcement, Kevin Wong, CEO of Wulf Esports said he was grateful to Yoodo for giving the team a leg up through its strong support in the last three years:
“Yoodo Gank has certainly carved a name for itself amongst gamers and won over many fans through the years.
