Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has restricted public gatherings in closed environments, SLESA’s All-Island Free Fire Championship powered by Dialog has gained much traction as participants can play from remote locations such as the comfort of their homes.
Featuring an attractive prize pool worth Rs. 1 Million, this district-level Esports tournament will act as a platform to identify and develop Esports athletes and will pave the way for them to compete in an international arena. The championship is organised around one of Sri Lanka’s most popular Esports titles – Free Fire, a multiplayer battle royale mobile game developed and published by Garena.
Speaking on the upcoming championship, Raveen Wijayatilake, President of SLESA stated “The DIALOG-SLESA All-Island Free Fire Championship is a step forward in readying Sri Lanka’s Esports athletes for the global Esports revolution. We’re pleased to have Dialog joining us on this journey as we endeavour to keep the country on-par with our regional Esports competitors.”
As the official sponsor, Dialog Axiata has made an arrangement to LIVE stream the matches via Thepapare.com, SLESA & Gamer.lk social media pages in the interest of all Esport lovers.
