Philippine National Esports Team compete at the SEA Games

SIBOL Is Your PH National Team for Esports at the SEA Games

Esports, for the first time in history, will be a medal event in the upcoming 2019 Southeast Asian Games. Carrying our flag in this discipline will be Sibol, the Philippine national team for esports.





The  30th South East Asian (SEA) Games will be on November 30 to December 11, 2019. For this edition of the Games, four designated hubs will serve as hosts namely Manila, Clark, Subic, and a fourth cluster consisting of venues not grouped with the first three hubs. This will be the fourth time that the Philippines will host the games and its first time since 2005. Previously, it had also hosted the 1981 and 1991 editions of the games.


What is SIBOL?

Sibol, which is the Filipino word for "growth," is an apt name for our national team as it signifies not only the rise of esports around the world but also the advancement of esports talent in the Philippines.

Flaunting our national colors, the Sibol logo is an amalgam of the leaf and the flame. The leaf symbolizes new beginnings while the flame represents the passion of the Filipino gamer. The  shapes in the flame also subtly spell out the country’s acronym, PHI.
The SIBOL Esports Team

Sibol will be competing in all six titles featured in the esports event of the 30th SEA Games, which include Dota 2, StarCraft II, Hearthstone, Arena of Valor, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and Tekken 7.

The SIBOL Training Pool

Joining them in the Sibol training pool are individuals who will prove victorious in the upcoming open qualifiers. Any Filipino citizen over the age of 13 can join the said qualifier. This will happen on August, and more details are going to be announced soon.

Once the Sibol training pool is complete, each player will be evaluated based on their mastery of their respective esport title as well as their compatibility with the rest of the team, among other factors.

Managers and coaches will be assigned per game, and they will be a part of the selection committee in charge of trimming the pool down to the final Sibol team that will compete in the SEA Games.

The final Sibol roster for the SEA Games will be composed of seven players each for team games (Dota 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Arena of Valor), and two representatives for the individual games (Tekken 7, Hearthstone, StarCraft II). 

PSEU Is the Official Esports Event Manager of the 2019 SEA Games


In charge of creating and managing Sibol will be the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Esports Union (PSEU), a group under the Philippine Olympic Committee. PSEU was established for the sole purpose of organizing the esports event at the 30th Southeast Asian Games as well as the Philippine team and delegation.

PSEU is the product of the partnership between the Esports National Association of the Philippines (ESNAP) and the Nationals Esports Federation of the Philippines (NESFP). The team is determined to make Sibol a representation of the country's best gamers, in line with our target of winning gold in the Games.

The 30th SEA Games will be held in the Philippines from November 30 to December 11, 2019. Eleven countries will be participating in the games, including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, East Timor, and Vietnam. The esports competition is scheduled from December 5 to 10, 2019 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan, Metro Manila.
