realme, the PH’s no. 1 smartphone brand for 2021 (based on Canalys sell-in data Q1-Q4 2021), continues to empower Filipino gamers and rally the esports community with a variety of gaming partnerships and initiatives the Squad can look forward to this year.
During the recently concluded realme Brand Summit earlier this month, the leading tech brand gave its eager fans a glimpse of what’s to come in the esports scene with announcements of key partnerships and exciting tournaments in the pipeline for 2022.
“Here at realme, we see the importance of mobile gaming and esports in the lifestyles of Filipinos. It is truly inspiring to witness how passionate our Squad is when it comes to gaming, and we hope to provide them with the best platforms, opportunities, and tech devices they need to further hone this craft,” shares Austine Huang, realme Philippines’ VP for Marketing.
In line with its commitment to support Filipino pro-gamers, realme partnered with SIBOL, the country’s national esports team, as its official smartphone partner. The brand assures it will be giving its full support for the team as they face gamers from around the world on the international esports stage this year.
“I’m ecstatic that realme became our official smartphone partner for Team SIBOL 2022. They have been known to assist and help develop esports at the grassroots level for many years now. We are happy to have them onboard as we look forward to repeating our great performance in the last 2019 SEA Games,” shares Brian Lim, Team SIBOL President.
Through this partnership, realme will be supporting the national esports team with its latest gaming smartphones. “This will help our national team focus more on their strategies and game play mechanics as we are confident that their equipment for training is already topnotch,” says Lim.
