Leading the participants were Southeast Asian Games medalists Alexandre “AK” Laverez and Andreij “Doujin” Albar of Laus Playbook Esports.

“Let us not make trash-talking a norm–and just like in other professions, I would like to remind everyone that a professional athlete has the responsibility to conduct himself well,” said commissioner Eduard Trinidad during his opening speech.

He also praised Filipino gamers and called them the ‘real McCoy’ of Philippine professional sports.

The focal persons for esports led by Noemi Lizardo hosted the virtual session — tackling several topics which include different rules and responsibilities for athletes and officials.

The consequences for breaking the code of conduct were also discussed during the hour-long session.

GAB Chairman Baham Mitra, who participated during the question-and-answer portion, reiterated the campaign of the agency against game-fixing and other fraudulent schemes designed to destroy the integrity of the game.

Assistant Chief of Professional Sports Division Jackie Ornido facilitated the Oath of Professional Athletes while June Bautista, the Chief of Professional Sports Division, delivered a short closing remark.
