NCAA: CCE Looking To Establish Collegiate Esports League Set To Launch In October

by | Posted on: August 16th, 2021 | No Comments | Sports

In a few months, the Collegiate Center for Esports (CCE) plans to host a five-on-five Mobile Legends Bang Bang Varsity Cup, allowing esports athletes to participate on a collegiate level for the first time.

“The esports scene, especially ML, has grown bigger and bigger in the Philippines and Asia over the years, paving the way for us in creating an organized league in the collegiate ranks. That’s basically the origin of CCE,” CCE head organizer Ssein Meneses said.

“Our goal is for this dream to be nationwide down the road,” Meneses added.

However, before launching their league, they will host a series of 1-on-1 exhibition matches beginning this weekend, August 14, with basketball talents such as National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Season 95 Finals MVP Fran Yu.

Other varsity basketball players expected to compete include Mapua University’s Warren Bonifacio and Jasper Cuevas of the University of Perpetual Help, as well as representatives from San Beda University, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Jose Rizal University, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Arellano University, and De La Salle College of Saint Benilde.

The tournament’s official broadcaster will be CALM Network.

Several international titles in Mobile Legends have been won by Filipino teams, including the M2 World Championships, the MLBB Southeast Asia Cup, and the Southeast Asian Games.
