Harame Bro Emerges Victorious: PUBG MOBILE Philippines, TECNO Set the Stage for International Esports Glory

In a thrilling display of skill and strategy, Harame Bro secured their victory at the PUBG MOBILE National Championships (PMNC), held on January 6-7, 2024, at the iconic SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, Philippines. The team not only claimed a lion's share of the PHP 500,000 cash prize pool but also walked away with the coveted TECNO Spark 20 Pro, the flagship camera from the latest SPARK 20 series.

The event, attended by thousands of passionate Filipino PUBG MOBILE fans, was made possible through the support of TECNO, a leading smartphone brand committed to making gaming accessible to the Filipino youth. With a generous sponsorship of the entire competition, TECNO played a pivotal role in bringing the excitement of competitive gaming to the forefront.

Harame Bro stood tall on the podium alongside formidable competitors such as 214 Akira, Exquisite Esports, Dread Esports, and ELV8 Esports. These top-performing teams, together with Playbook Esports (PBE) and Enigma, emerged as the top seven squads set to represent the Philippines in international PUBG MOBILE Esports competitions.

The Path to Victory

These elite teams navigated a challenging path, triumphing over more than 200 teams from across the country in a series of tournaments that showcased their gaming prowess and teamwork. Beyond the quest for national glory, these teams now bear the responsibility of representing the Philippines on the global stage, solidifying the country's rising prominence in the competitive gaming landscape of Southeast Asia.
