The Tekken 7 champion, along with the finalists, will also get a chance to be picked by the founding teams of The Nationals, the country’s first ever eSports franchise model league that serves as a hotbed for Philippine representatives to major international eSports events. These founding teams include PLDT-Smart, Cignal, HappyFeet, Bren eSports, TNC Pro Team, and STI Holdings.

 

Aside from Tekken 7, ESGS will also host the DOTA 2 ‘Road to the Nationals’ finals featuring some of the country’s top teams, with over Php1.2 million in prizes for the champion.

The top team at the upcoming qualifier at UGZ137 in Imus, Cavite will also grab a spot in the finals.

 

As part of the ‘Road to the Nationals,’ PLDT Home Fibr and Smart are also set to host the country’s biggest Mobile Legends tournament soon.
