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 UnionBank Vice-Chairman Justo A. Ortiz. 

ULeague’s start came when 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.
