Who is it?

What is being said?

“ESL have announced that they will be running Wild Rift Tournaments in Malaysia and Thailand as an official partner of Riot Games throughout 2021. While I would say this isn’t significant to a lot of people because it is in Malaysia and Thailand, I think this is an indication of how we’re going to see even more Wild Rift Tournaments be created.’

“It’s a big partner I think to have in that region, ESL have already said that they have wanted to have even more of a global expansion and I guess tapping into Malaysia and Thailand is one way of doing that. In addition ESL will also host a collegiate Wild Rift tournament in Thailand next year as well. They also explained what the competitive circuit would be.”
