The SIBOL Valorant team is gearing up to represent the Philippines at the 32nd SEA Games, a biennial multi-sporting event involving multiple countries.

Oasis Gaming secured their place at the 32nd SEA Games through a hard-fought victory in the SIBOL 2023 Nation Team Selection tournament that was held four months ago.

The group stage matches begin on May 8 and 9. They will participate in a single round-robin best-of-one format, facing off against each of their opponents once. After that, the top four teams from the group will proceed to the playoffs.

On May 10, the remaining teams will compete in a single-elimination bracket, where only one team will emerge victorious and claim the gold medal.
