It’s all systems go for Neon Esports and the rest of the Philippine contingent as the government released a revised memo allowing non-overseas workers to return to the country, Friday morning.
The Neon Esports quintet of John Anthony “Natsumi-” Vargas, Erin “Yopaj” Ferrer, Ejay “PlayHard” Maque, Gabriel “skem” Ong, Jaunuel “Jaunuel” Arcilla; T1’s Carlo “Kuku” Palad and Karl “Karl” Jayme, and Fnatic’s Djardel “Dj” Mampusti and Polo “Raven” Fausto; and Evil Geniuses’ Abed “Abed” Yusop are now all set to compete in the ONE Esports Singapore Major which takes place from March 27 to April 4.
The previous circular which was released last March 16 temporarily suspended the entry of returning Filipinos who are not OFWs.
The National Task Force Against COVID-19 revised the earlier memo allowing Filipino citizens, including those that are not OFWs, will be allowed to enter the Philippines.
According to Valve Major’s traveling rules, teams will have to leave Singapore as soon as they get eliminated.
Neon Esports reportedly worked closely with the Games and Amusement Board prior to the NTF announcement.
Abed’s Evil Geniuses and Dj and Raven’s Fnatic will go straight to the playoffs. Meanwhile, Neon Esports will thread the group stage while Kuku and Karl will join forces to lift T1 out of the wild card phase.
