Fulcrum Esports and GosuGamers have announced their new partnership to elevate gaming and esports in the Philippines. GosuGamers, an established gaming website with a strong presence in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia, and Fulcrum Esports, a local esports and gaming organization focusing on grassroots development are partnering up to create community-level gaming and esports tournaments and events across the country to uplift the gaming experience and provide more opportunities for players and teams to be discovered by larger organizations.
GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports will be launching GosuBattles, an esports event platform developed by GosuGamers, in the Philippines to help local tournament organizers and players develop their capabilities. The platform will provide exposure to more tournaments and organized play, and increase the skill level of players and teams. Fulcrum Esports is currently working with Nvidia on the GeForce Icafe Tournament Series to develop grassroots level tournaments in the country.
In addition to community-level events, GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports plan to develop workshops and educational materials to target educational institutions and local government units in 2023. The goal of these programs is to educate not only the gamers but also their parents, and show that being involved in sports can be a viable career choice. These programs will also aim to develop STEM-based skills and positive attributes such as leadership, communication, problem solving, and self-care management that are necessary for success in life. Overall, the partnership between GosuGamers and Fulcrum Esports is set to bring new opportunities and growth to the gaming scene in the Philippines in 2023.
