Philippine Esports Organization (PESO) received accreditation as an associate member and the official Nationals Sports Association (NSA) for esports in the Philippines.
Decided by the mother organization of all NSAs, the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), PESO will now have the duty to organize events, the promulgation of rules of the sport, promotion, and growth of the sport via grassroots programs and other activities, and the recruitment of National players and coaches.
PESO has built a reputation for having long-standing experience in esports, such as conducting a National Qualifiers to the World Championships and has been a member in good standing under the International Esports Federation (IESF) since 2012.
PESO’s first big event for this year is the Philippine Qualifiers for the IESF World Championships to be held in Israel this December. Details on the Philippine Qualifiers for the 12th IESF World Championship will be announced through the PESO Facebook Page. The event then will be aired on One Sports and One Sports Plus.
