Garena Malaysia recently launched the Garena Student Alliance (GSA) in conjunction with the Malaysia Campus League (MYCL) Season 3, and this initiative from Garena Malaysia will bring Malaysia's e-Sports scene into greater heights.
Garena Student Alliance
The main purpose that GSA serves is to create support and empower university students in Malaysia to build a structured and well-established e-Sports club in their respective campuses, and these clubs are also known as "GSA eSports Club", governed by GSA leaders.
GSA operates base on 3 of their own principles: education, community, and e-Sports.
Support from the GSA
Setting up and managing a club is no easy feat as the students have to juggle between studies and club activities. Garena recognizes the difficulty in doing so and they are ready to lend a helping hand, or two.
Besides grooming more e-Sports athletes, Garena is also looking to increase the number of industry experts through the introduction of MYCL Host Search, which is a talent search program for all university students to gain experience in the broadcast productions field. "This year, we prioritized making MYCL a campus event co-managed by the students and our GSA eSports Club Presidents. By introducing the MYCL Host Search, we are giving more opportunities to students to explore various career paths in eSports that is complimented by hands-on experience alongside the biggest names in Malaysian eSports," Garena Malaysia Product Manager, Justin Lye stated.
Malaysia Campus League paved way for the first-ever e-Sports scholarship in Malaysia back in 2016, and GSA is set to move on a similar path this year by organizing two major Collegiate e-Sports events, one is the MYCL, and the other will be the upcoming GSA Championship with scholarships and international exposure set to be the focal point.
Garena Student Alliance will definitely be a big help in putting Malaysia into the global e-Sports scene and gamers who are still studying in colleges and universities should not miss this opportunity to be part of GSA.
