This proprietary esports platform allows publishers and sponsors alike to access “over 55,000,000 esports fans” in Southeast Asia, according to a release. Meta was used as the technology platform for the 2019 Southeast Asia Games, in which esports was a medal event.

We want to give gamers— regardless of their status or experience— a chance to grow and to go as far as their talent and hard work can take them.
