ACADARENA INKS PARTNERSHIP WITH UNITED COLLEGIATE CHAMPIONSHIP LEAGUE
AcadArena Technologies Inc. has inked a partnership with United Collegiate Championship League (UCCL) in composing an e-sports tournament.
AcadArena said that the UCCL has over 30 schools in its network. Its chief operating officer Justin Banusing hoped that the partnership “creates a domino effect of more universities and conferences entering esports.”
“UCCL is one of the most forward-facing athletic conferences in the Philippines, so we’re delighted to be collaborating with them,” he added.
Meanwhile, UCCL President Juan Lozano said they are “incredibly excited” for the collaboration.
“Esports is something that can provide students with countless opportunities, and we are looking forward to being at the forefront of it alongside an industry leader,” Lozano said.
The UCCL covers schools in the Calabarzon, opening leagues for sports like basketball, volleyball, football, among others. The partnership makes UCCL the “first organized collegiate league” to break into esports, according to AcadArena.
UCCL will be the co-organizer of the Luzon legs of the league, beginning with the hit first-person shooting game Call of Duty Mobile leg this April.
