Esports was added to the Southeast Asian Games on the 30th SEA Games held in Manila, Philippines. At that time also, Team Philippines brought the gold medal and the finals had a peak viewership of 200K+.
But with the rising popularity of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang in the region, this year’s finals broke all past records.
