Globe and Esports AcadArena have launched several esports initiatives for the 3rd quarter of 2020 including the previously announced Alliance Program as well as the Mobile Legends National Cup.
The Alliance Program, also known as the Alliance League, includes ten (10) campus student organizations that will be given “hands-on training and infrastructure support” for the League’s inaugural season, which will feature both League of Legends and Hearthstone.

As for the Hearthstone tournament, it will feature a 16-player elimination bracket.
The tournaments will be streamed exclusively on www.twitch.tv/acadarenaph. More information on the tournaments as well as the participating teams can be found on the official Alliance League website: www.acadarena.com/alliance.
