Smart launches GIGA Arena, PH’s first all-in-one esports platform

Smart Communications Inc. is gearing up to roll out a platform where its subscribers can join and compete in local esports tournaments.

Dubbed “GIGA Arena,” the gaming portal is set to open registration in tournaments across different mobile gaming titles like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Players Unknown Battlegrounds, Call of Duty: Mobile, and League of Legends: Wild Rift, to name a few, starting March 9.

To participate, users can go to gigaarena.smart, register their Smart mobile number and choose from weekly, daily, and monthly tournaments.

Tickets are required to join tournaments, which Smart users can earn by purchasing the GIGAGames promo.

“This is first of its kind online tournament platform will be the ultimate destination for Filipinos to compete with friends and get a shot at winning the prize pool,” said Smart vice president and head of content business development Gerard Milan.

Earnings per tournament can be claimed via GigaPay through PayMaya for seamless prize redemption.

In celebration of the launch, there will be an exhibition game between Omega Esports and the “Smart Dream Team” consisting of famous gaming content creators on March 9.
