Esports will take centerstage in the Southeast Asian Games after finally becoming a competitive event in the biennial meet.

And to further enhance the discipline’s visibility, DOTA 2 star Pan ‘Ruru’ Jie will arrive in the country to oversee the launch of the biggest esports tie-ups in the Philippines and Southeast Asian region.
