With its new Wild Rift roster, Liyab aims to dominate the Wild Rift Champions SEA - Philippines and secure a spot in the upcoming Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022.

Who is Liyab Esports?
Liyab Esports is an esports organization from the Philippines. It is sponsored by telecommunications provider, Globe Telecom, and one of the prominent esports organizations in the region, Mineski.
Its Wild Rift team originally debuted on 29th Jan 2021. However, the team was not able to find success in the Wild Rift esports scene. The only championship title the team acquired was from a local esports event, Metro Manila Bakbakan, where they finished with a clean sweep victory score of 3-0 against Berjata Dragons in the grand finals.
As one of the biggest esports organizations in the Philippines, Liyab Esports has always been a fan favorite due to how it engages with its fans and for its commitment towards molding promising local esports talents.
