SILAB shines light for Filipinas in esports with launch of all-female league and qualifiers for MWI 2024

The esports and gaming landscape in the Philippines is becoming more inclusive and diverse as it launches SILAB, an esports league exclusively for women.

Empowerment of women in esports.


With the introduction of SILAB, an all-female esports league, Filipina players are poised to make their mark in the world of esports.


Established by influential Filipino women in esports such as Queen Wasabi of Liga Adarna, Overdrive Studios founder and CEO Dani Rogacion, Fantech Philippines Esports and PR Manager Jang Bien, and MPL Filipinas announcer Chantelle Hernandez, SILAB aims to create a platform where women can excel in esports.


The SILAB will make its debut with the launch of SILAB: Road to MWI Finals 2024, an all-female qualifier tournament for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Women’s Invitational in the Philippines.


The tournament’s victor will go on to represent the Philippines at the 2024 MLBB Women’s Invitational in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


According to Lee Viloria, the Moonton Business Development and Partnerships Lead, launching SILAB: Road to MWI Finals 2024 is a move aimed at highlighting the talents of Filipina MLBB gamers, who are just as skilled and competitive as their male counterparts.


Viloria added that Filipina women are not just managers, coaches, hosts, and casters, but formidable MLBB esports athletes as well.


Consisting of three stages: the Franchise Owner’s Qualifiers Round, the SILAB Open Qualifiers, and the MWI Philippines Grand Finals, the tournament will also feature an offline local area network (LAN) event later.


The Franchise Owner’s Qualifiers is slated for April 21, the Open Qualifiers are due on April 28-29 and May 5-6, while the grand final is set for May 12.


The MWI 2024 in Saudi boasts an astonishing prize pool worth $500,000.
