“Being a professional esports brand CEO at 18 was never easy. It all started when I was 17 and started sponsoring small teams. I never really expected that I’d even be in this position but with hard work and patience, all of it had a positive result. These achievements won’t be here with me if it wasn’t because of the three people who helped me throughout my journey as a leader: Sofia my best support system, Denz my OG business partner, and Jav my solid hypeman,” stated Ultimate EPro CEO and founder, Matt Gloria .
Ultimate EPro recently showcased its dominance in the COD Mobile esports scene in the Philippines by taking down Omega Esports, which acquired NRX Jeremiah 29:11's roster, in the grand finals of Call of Duty Mobile - Philippines Championship 2021 with a score of 3-1.
The team will be participating in the COD Mobile Garena Qualifier under a new banner, Blacklist International Ultimate, and will climb its way up the ranks, leading to the COD Mobile World Championships 2021. However, Activision is yet to announce the date of the COD Mobile Garena Qualifier.
It will be interesting to see how well Blacklist International Ultimate performs against the best teams in SEA in the COD Mobile Garena Qualifier.
