According to the ROG representative, Ren Hu stated: “We are excited to be part of this tournament which is primarily run by GSA eSports Clubs in Malaysia. The students play a big role in the gaming community and we can’t wait to see gamers and influencers share this journey from Malaysia to Stockholm together.” For the GSA Championship, 32 universities from across Malaysia will be participating in two main events including League of Legends and EA Sports FIFA Online 3 (FO3). Each university is limited to registering 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," Chun Jan Bong, The Coordinator of GSA said. “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,” he added.

Established in April 2017, GSA was designed to empower passionate student gamers to build a thriving gaming community and healthy eSports scene on campus, as well as grooming the next e-Sports star from Malaysia. Stay up to date with GSA by visiting the GSA website or their official Facebook page.
