Acer’s Asia Pacific Predator League 2020 will have to be postponed to spring 2021 in the Philippines due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Acer said that the health and safety of the gaming community is their top priority and has been working with public health authorities and their advisories.
The Predator League 2020/2021 will have the same qualifying teams from the local preliminary competitions for the finale in Spring 2021, with a prize pool of US$400,000.
“With the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we decided to move the competition to Spring 2021 for the safety and best interests of the tournament’s competitors, fans, spectators, and staff,” said Andrew Hou, President of Acer Pan Asia Pacific Regional Operations.
The event was supposed to take place at SM Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City, in February 2020. Nearly 20,000 tickets have been sold for the tournament, with a total of 17 regions entering the local qualifier competitions held from October 2019.
In expressing appreciation for the Predator community, those who purchased VIP tickets will receive a complimentary drawstring bag with limited edition Predator League 2020 shirt and face mask, and those who purchased regular tickets will still receive a Predator shirt.
Predator’s social media pages will post further instructions on claiming these freebies. Follow Acer’s social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep updated on the latest developments in the Asia Pacific Predator League 2020/2021.
