Lenovo, in partnership, with Intel kicks off its Legion of Champions Series III (LoC III) Grand Finals eSports competition, bringing together over 60 gaming talents across the Asia Pacific.
This year’s tournament is the biggest one yet, with first-time competitors India, Japan and Korea, competing alongside Hong Kong/Macau, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. After multiple elimination rounds at the local level, in-market winners will face off in an intense international showdown at Central Plaza Ladprao, Bangkok, from January 25 to 27, 2019.
“LoC is a testament to Lenovo’s ongoing commitment to foster Asia’s gaming community. With eSports’ meteoric rise in legitimacy and influence in the region, our initiatives seek to further connect like-minded enthusiasts and empower the next generation of gamers,” said Ken Wong, President, Lenovo Asia Pacific.
“We are happy to say that the LoC has become a major annual highlight that is wholly anticipated and supported by both gaming organizations and fans alike,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager. “We’re proud to be part of our local teams’ eSports journey by providing them a platform to enhance and hone their skills.”
Last year’s LoC saw over 7,000 gamers and 20,000 on-site attendees. This community of gamers and eSports fans has driven the evolution of Lenovo Legion and its innovation.
