Esports Integrated (ESI), the strategic catalyst agency for both youth and sports centric initiatives under the purview of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS), has announced its collaboration with game developers Tencent and Moonton. The Company Limited By Guarantee (CLBG) consists of five entities, namely: Impact Malaysia, an initiative for youth development and social innovation; Rakita, a multi-channel infotainment media brand tailored for youth; Spacerubix, an inspirational hub inclusive of event spaces and sports complex in Puchong; Picksum, a marketplace platform for local homegrown products; and Esports Integrated, an initiative to catalyse a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive Esports ecosystem.
To drive growth and diversity in the local esports community that will impact 20.1 million Malaysians, ESI believes that it plays a crucial part in creating opportunities for local talents to participate in professional leagues, both locally and internationally. Through its collaboration with Tencent and Moonton, the local esports and gaming talents will stand a chance to compete in the bigger and more competitive leagues as both game developers are offering a seat slot into MPL Qualifiers for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and PUBG Mobile Malaysia National Championship (PMNC) respectively.
Registrations for Malaysian Esports Championship 2020 are currently open.
