As announced recently, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) and Intel are the official sponsors for Garena Student Alliance (GSA) Championship, a countrywide university eSports tournament with partial scholarships amounting to RM62,000 up for the taking later this year in November.

With this partnership, one can look forward to Malaysia being represented by one top League of Legends teams for the Join The Republic: Community Challenge in Stockholm, Sweden held in early 2018. At the prestigious global stage, Malaysia will be pitted against other dominant countries such as Spain, United States, China, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan.

Thirty-two universities from across Malaysia will be competing in two main events in the GSA Championship, namely League of Legends and EA Sports FIFA Online 3 (FO3). However, each university can only register up to four teams for League​ ​of​ ​Legends​ ​and​ ​16​ ​individuals​ ​for​ ​FO3.

“​There is a lot at stake for the students as the overall champions​ ​will​ ​walk​ ​away​ ​with​ ​a​ ​cash​ ​prize​ ​and​ ​partial​ ​scholarships​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​their​ ​studies.

“Our primary objective is to educate the students through hands-on experience and hope the Malaysian​ ​campus​ ​scene​ ​becomes​ ​the​ ​pioneer​ ​region​ ​for​ ​Southeast​ ​Asia,” said Chun Jan Bong, GSA Coordinator.
