Sri Lanka’s national PUBG MOBILE team is ready to compete at the 19th Asian Games, marking a historic moment as Esports becomes a medal event for the first time. Dialog Axiata sponsors the team, while Gamer.LK provides strategic partnership.

This is a big deal for Sri Lanka, putting them at the forefront of the Esports revolution. The Sri Lanka Esports Association (SLESA), founded in 2010, has been instrumental in this growth. With government recognition in 2019, Esports is now a legitimate sport in Sri Lanka.

SLESA President Raveen Wijayatilake, who will manage the team, is excited for the athletes. He sees this as a chance to promote Esports and inspire future generations. Sri Lanka has already seen success with players competing internationally.

Dialog Axiata, a major Sri Lankan internet provider, has been a strong supporter of Esports for years. They’ve powered gaming competitions and helped develop local talent. With their extensive network coverage, they’re ensuring everyone can participate in Esports, even in rural areas.

Gamer.LK, a leading Sri Lankan Esports company, is another key partner. Their work in organizing tournaments has fueled the rapid growth of the sport in the country.

SLESA remains focused on nurturing talent and representing Sri Lanka on the world stage. The Asian Games are just the beginning for Sri Lanka’s Esports scene, and they have their sights set on international recognition.
