One of the biggest esports organizations in Southeast Asia, Bren Esports, is coming to Singapore.
The M2 World Championship-winning organization will enter the Singapore market by partnering with esports talent management agency, Emerge Esports. Emerge plans to manage the Filipino team across various gaming titles, starting with League of Legends: Wild Rift.
“We are excited to work with one of the finest esports teams the industry has to offer and believe they are a natural fit for our agency,” said Roy Kek, Chief Executive Officer of EMERGE Esports. “We admire and share their passion for gaming and would like this to be a part of a greater initiative of making gaming a mainstream lifestyle in Singapore and in the region.”
Emerge Esports launched last November 2020 and has over 70 esports athletes and personalities in their talent pool. Their first esports team, Kingsmen, competes in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Valorant, and PUBG Mobile. The agency is built around the values of Excellence, Mindset, Efficiency, Responsibility, Growth, and Ethics (EMERGE), and aims to provide players and talents with a multi-layered support system for a lifelong career.
Bren’s Chief Operating Officer Jab Escutin said “EMERGE Esports has shown tremendous growth in the past months in terms of audience engagement and partnerships. Together with our partners and athletes, we look forward to building and enhancing the vibrant esports scene in Singapore and in the region.”
MLBB player Ribo, part of Bren’s M2 winning roster added, “We are thrilled to be working with EMERGE Esports and believe this opportunity will bring us closer to our followers in Singapore and in the vicinity. We also hope that the tie-up can empower more esports enthusiasts to pursue gaming and also support us in our journey ahead.”
