Singapore, 8 December 2019 – The champions of Singtel’s PVP Corporate and Campus Leagues have been crowned. After months of intense competition and a thrilling grand finals held over the weekend at the inaugural Singapore Comic Con (SGCC), Team Realpage Esports from the Philippines and Team Teletubbies from Thailand emerged victorious in the Corporate League’s Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) and Dota 2 games respectively.

Realpage Esports’ captain Jonathan Grabol said, “The whole PVP Corporate League experience has been a great one, and it’s even more amazing that we won the trophy – it’s a real treasure! Our competitors were a tough team to beat and at some point we didn’t think we would make it. We’re very lucky to have had the support from our company from the start of the tournament and are excited to share our win.”
Teletubbies’ captain Thanawin Faungfung said, “It really means a lot that we’re able to take the trophy back home to Thailand! We didn’t have a lot of time to practise as a team so it was definitely a challenging and very close game. It’s awesome that we managed to pull through at the end – this is truly a great end to what was a fun and enjoyable competition.”
Unstable Network’s captain Aaron Tan said, "We’re proud to be taking home the PVP Campus League cup tonight. It was hard to find time to train together but we were still confident of bringing home the champion trophy! We want to show our thanks to all the other teams for participating and making this journey tough for us over the last few months. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride and we enjoyed this chance given to play at the Grand Final at Comic Con.”
Mr Arthur Lang, CEO of Singtel’s International Group said, “Congratulations to the winners! What an exciting run it has been in the lead up to the PVP Corporate and Campus League finals.
