Online gaming is an industry in the Philippines that just keeps on growing. In fact, revenues showed exponential growth in 2022 compared to previous years. Whether it’s on a gaming console, a mobile phone, or a computer; one thing is for certain: gaming has gained a lot of traction among Filipinos, particularly among the youth.
SM Cyberzone, the largest chain of IT retail stores in the Philippines, has long been aware of this; even pioneering the community eSports scene since 2014, and through the years, the brand has done all that it can support the grassroots gaming community. SM Cyberzone built gaming programs that have been recognized all over the country from 2016 to 2019, and continue to innovate the tournament scene in collaboration with global eSports organizations.
