Whether you’re a newbie, casual gamer or a pro, Globe Gamer Grounds is for you
Kakalaro mo ‘yan (That’s what you get for playing games)! For telco giant Globe Telecom, there is purpose in online gaming as they further their e-gaming efforts, this time around, with Globe Gamer Grounds.
As expected in the pandemic, online gaming reached an all-time high. 2020 statistics reveal that 43 million gamers drove the unprecedented rise in the Philippine gaming industry and across Southeast Asia, with 74% of the Philippine online gaming population playing on their mobile devices, 65% on PC games and 45% playing on the classic console games.
To further solidify Globe’s commitment to online gaming, they have launched Game Well-Played, a campaign banding passionate gamers from across the country.

At an intimate press event, Rina Siongco, Head of Get Entertained Tribe at Globe, reveals the telco giant’s purpose for the campaign: “While there are many stereotypes and stigma around gaming, we believe that there is value to acquire in spending hours of training for a competition or simply getting lost in a new world while meeting new friends. In seemingly dire battlegrounds, strategic thinking and creativity can flourish.”
Many renowned gamers present at the event, like Cherizawa and Boss Maw, shared how gaming helped them gain lifelong valuable skills like time management, financial independence and even multitasking.
To make gaming more accessible, Globe improves its Go+ offers with GoPLAY, which promises more gaming apps and free in-game vouchers soon for a more leveled up gaming experience.
Aside from games such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), League of Legends Wild Rift, Valorant and Legends of Runeterra, fans can also look forward to the addition of Genshin Impact and Pokemon Unite in the exciting roster of games of GoPLAY.
Globe is dedicated to changing things up and establishing its position as the leading partner in gaming in the country by throwing its full support to professional leagues like Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL), and organizations like AcadArena and Blacklist International. They’re also teaming up with play-to-earn enablers like Sky Mavis, the publishers of Axie Infinity, to give players the opportunity to achieve financial independence while still having fun.
On top of that, Globe Broadband’s partnership with PPGL is a year-long partnership that supports Riot’s game titles in the Philippines as well as being the hosts of this year’s Valorant Challengers Tour and the WildRift Champions of SouthEast Asia.
