Esports is growing rapidly in Malaysia
The Malaysian esports teams have won several tournaments and emerged as champions locally and internationally.
Previously, the Malaysian all-women team Grills Gaming won gold at the inaugural Commonwealth Esports Championship on 6 August 2022 in Birmingham, UK.
Another group, Team Secret, won in the 4th Season of the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile Pro League South East Asia Championship and took home a cash prize of RM128,251.
The esports scene in Malaysia is currently still growing. As more competitions arise, those in the industry said they need more people to join them in their journey.
As multiple events are taking place at the same time, we need more people to help with events, especially on the production side. Players are part of the ecosystem, but we need more camera persons, producers, game marshals, referees and even social media teams to post updates. Today’s biggest esports events have to be run like an entertainment programme or sports show.Esports commentator, Andrew Cheong ‘Sir Cloud’
