E-Gilas to take on five nations in FIBA Esports Open III

E-Gilas Pilipinas will take on a six-team field when it steps on the virtual court of the FIBA Esports Open from April 16-18, 2021.

Gone is Australia, who foiled the Philippines’ back-to-back bid during Esports Open II last November.

Instead, E-Gilas will take on a field that includes rival Indonesia; Southeast Asian neighbors Vietnam and Mongolia; and newcomers Maldives and Sri Lanka in the Southeast Asia Conference.

NBA 2K will still be the game that will be used while the platform will still be PlayStation 4.

Group stage games are scheduled for Friday and the best-of-three Play-Off series will follow on Saturday and Sunday.

All games, just like previous editions, will be available on FIBA’s digital channels with live content being streamed across Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube channels.

Group stage games will be shown on Facebook and YouTube and commentated by remote casters thanks to the partnership between FIBA and the commentating platform Spalk, while all Play-Off games will be fully produced from FIBA’s virtual studio in Latvia.

Playbook Esports will still be the team representing the country.

During the inaugural season of the tournament, the Philippines swept Indonesia.

However, Australia dominated both the Philippines and Indonesia during the second edition of the meet.
