The Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL) returns in 2021 with a yearlong tournament lineup for Valorant and mobile game League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Although PPGL has yet to give more details of its Wild Rift tournament lineup, it has announced the January hosting of the 2021 Valorant Challengers, an all-Filipino qualifying window for the Southeast Asia Valorant Masters tournament.
Apart from the usual qualification spots, PPGL also put up a P1.5-million prize pool for the Valorant Challengers. Registration is free, open to everyone in the country, and is set to run from January 20 to 24 for the first tournament.
The 2021 Challengers will be divided into 3 splits, and each split will run 3 tournaments taking place over 6 weeks. The first split will be an all-online tournament in accordance with the pandemic safety measures currently being observed.
Only two teams from the Philippines will advance to the Masters.
“We are excited to develop new gaming talent in the Philippines,” said Mineski Philippines country manager Mark Navarro in a statement.
“As the largest multi-game esports league in the country, we invite all gamers to find their home in the PPGL. In the years to come, we want to take pride in having one of our homegrown talents win it all in the international scene,” he continued.
Registration for the second tournament of the first split will run from January 20 to February 7, while the third tournament’s sign-ups will run from January 20 to February 25.
