Philippine esports squad Sibol has launched a nationwide search for players as it looks to build rosters in preparation for the upcoming 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam this May. Powered by SMART Communications Inc, Sibol is getting ready to hold tryouts for players in Arena of Valor, Free Fire, League of Legends, and FIFA Online, after beginning the national tournament for other events in late January.
Sibol is already in phase two of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang national team selection process, with eight squads left. Mobile Legends has been a successful endeavor for Sibol, who also ruled Dota 2 and StarCraft II in the last SEA Games edition on its way to the overall championship with three golds, one silver, and one bronze medal.
Dota 2 and StarCraft II, however, are not included this time in Hanoi games that will feature a total of eight esports titles.
Still, hopes are high for an overall title repeat bid of Sibol under the supervision of the Philippine Esports Organization as the country’s national esports association.
