Smart Omega, the professional esports team backed by Smart Communications Inc. (Smart), is gearing up for the upcoming Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MLBB), the biggest mobile games competition in Southeast Asia.
“As a staunch supporter of esports and our Filipino athletes, it is our privilege to provide them with the right tools and training environment for their success,” said Jude Turcuato, FVP and head of Sports at PLDT and Smart.
Starting today (Feb. 18), Smart Omega will field Kelra, Raizen, Renzio, Mikko, Stowm, and Louis to compete with seven other teams in the league.
With a new roster for the new season, what can fans expect from Smart Omega? A journey toward redemption, according to head coach Ynot Senedrin.
“We still got most of our roster from last season, and we added some new talent. Our offseason training was good, and we can definitely see the team’s strengths and potential. We’re looking forward to seeing them in action,” Senedrin said.
With the goal of becoming the champion, Smart Omega thanked their fans for their unending support.
As the longtime official telco partner of MLBB in the Philippines, Smart has cemented its position as a staunch supporter of e-sports – including e-sports athletes, fans, game publishers, and tournament organizers – in the country.
