GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports recently announced a partnership, intent on promoting grassroots gaming and esports in the Philippines. The gaming and esports industry is one of the fastest growing in the country.
This partnership aims to develop community-level gaming and esports tournaments and events across the country to uplift the gaming experience. These events will give more exposure and experience to players and teams to be discovered by bigger teams and organizations.
GosuGamers is a leading gaming website with a strong presence in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Partnering with Fulcrum Esports, a young and active local esports and gaming organization that has hosted tournaments for top-tier tech brands in the country, will allow them to help existing esports communities grow by providing numerous opportunities to compete and learn.
GosuBattles, an esports event platform developed by GosuGamers, will also be launched first in the Philippines to develop local tournament organizers and players. This platform will help develop not just the organizers but also the skill level of the players and teams with exposure to more tournaments and organized play. Currently, Fulcrum Esports is running community and grassroots-level tournaments with Nvidia with the GeForce Icafe Tournament Series.
This is only the beginning of their collaboration; eventually, GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports will develop workshops and educational materials that will draw on the expertise of both organizations. The partnership intends to launch the first program, which will target educational institutions and local government units, in 2023.
With the combined efforts and expertise of GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports, the local gaming scene in the Philippines looks promising in 2023.
