HOME Credit Philippines, the country’s leading consumer credit provider, declares its support for medal-winning national esports team, SIBOL, at the upcoming Southeast Asian Games to be held in Hanoi, Vietnam, from May 13 to 22, 2022.
Committed to empowering every Filipino and filling the gaps to enrich their lives, HCPH hopes that this initiative will also highlight the positive opportunities for esports in the country and encourage and hone the skills of young Filipinos in this field.
SIBOL, which debuted in 2019, topped the SEA Games esports categories that year in Mobile Legends, DOTA 2, and Hearthstone, and earned silver and bronze at Tekken 7 for the Philippines. These achievements not only signify the rise of esports across the globe, but also showcase Filipino talent and skill in esports.
“Home Credit aims to help Filipinos achieve their goals in life. By participating in SIBOL’s journey and supporting each member of the team, we also hope to encourage other Filipinos, young people in particular, and remind them that they can achieve their goals and ambitions, especially if they have the support they need,” shares Sheila Paul, Marketing Director of HCPH.
“We are honored to be part of SIBOL’s efforts to bring pride to our country and recognize Filipino talent in esports. Home Credit finds it helpful to support a burgeoning category in esports, as we understand the importance of having a reliable and dependable ally to achieve their goals,” says Ken Lerona, HCPH Public Relations Manager.
This year’s SEA Games will feature 10 esports events: Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Arena of Valor, FIFA Online 4, League of Legends, League of Legends: Men’s and Women’s Wild Rift, CrossFire, Individual and Team PUBG Mobile, and Garena Free Fire.
“With the overwhelming support of Home Credit, we will work hard to bring more gold to the Philippines. Despite many challenges and some games not yet being as big or supported in our country, we remain true to our goals and we will give 100% to be the champions of the Filipino people,” said SIBOL Team President Brian Lim.
The first batch of the 64-strong SIBOL team is scheduled to fly to Hanoi on May 9. Vietnam is considered the closest competitor to the Philippines in esports, but SIBOL will once again hope to retain the overall title and bring honor to the country for the second time.
