Team Sibol is a force to be reckoned with, claiming six medals at the Southeast Asian Games in May, including two gold, one silver, and three bronze medals. In a historic feat, Sibol achieved medals in every esports title contested at the Games.

“We take immense pride in supporting a team of talented and passionate players who have been training relentlessly to represent our country,” said Jabs Escutin, Sibol General Manager.

“Looking ahead to 2024, we hold firm in our belief that Sibol will persist in elevating the Philippines on the global esports stage.”
