MANILA—The Philippine Esports Organization furthered its commitment to uplifting the esports industry in the country by opening its new headquarters at the LaunchPad in Mandaluyong City.

PeSO, joined by Jane J. Basas, President, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MediaGuest Holdings, raised the curtains on its new headquarters at the TV5 Media Center on Tuesday afternoon. It was a momentous event, not only for the organization but also for the entire Philippine esports scene.

"Opening a state-of-the-art esports office for the Philippine Esports Organization marks a significant milestone in the growth and recognition of esports in our country. It signifies our commitment to cultivating and nurturing a thriving esports ecosystem," said Basas, who is also a board member of the federation.

"This dedicated space will serve as a hub for innovation, collaboration, and the development of our talented esports athletes. It reinforces the importance of providing a professional environment that supports their training, enhances their skills, and propels them to compete at the highest level on the global stage," she added.

The facility features a 'Championship Wall,' which pays tribute to Filipino esports athletes who won medals in the Southeast Asian Games. The headquarters also has a meeting room equipped with state-of-the-art gaming laptops and peripherals.

Smart has been the leading supporter of esports in the Philippines and has backed the SIBOL national team since its inception in 2019.

As the Philippine esports scene continues to gain momentum, Basas believes that the opening of this cutting-edge facility signifies a bright future for the industry.

"With this state-of-the-art facility, we pave the way for the future of Philippine esports and demonstrate our belief in its immense potential to make a lasting impact in the world of competitive gaming."

Smart reiterated its support for PeSO's cause by providing the facility with a stable internet connection, recognizing the significance of exceptional internet connectivity in the federation's bid to continue uplifting the esports scene in the country.

"Smart Communications paves the way for a seamless future in Philippine esports, bridging the gap between passion and performance," said Melvin Nubla, FVP Head of Smart Go-To-Market and Sub Management. "By empowering the new Philippine Esports Organization office with an exceptional internet connection, Smart brings a combination of speed, reliability, and precision to help propel the nation's growing esports community to unprecedented heights."

"In this digital arena where every millisecond matters, Smart ensures that champions rise, strategies are executed, and dreams come alive. With Smart's unwavering support, we want to prove that in the realm of virtual battles, the strength of a network can truly shape destiny."

PeSO Executive Director Marlon Marcelo led the ribbon-cutting ceremony and was joined by the federation's board members and Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) commissioner Walter Torres.

"Now that we have a physical office, we will soon focus on merchandising and, of course, enhancing the general fan experience. We can actually have meet and greet events here in the office with the fans."
