To further support the growth of Esports in Sri Lanka, Dialog Axiata PLC, official sponsor of the Sri Lanka National Esports team, has joined hands with Sri Lanka Esports Association (SLESA) to power the inaugural edition of the ‘DIALOG-SLESA All-Island Free Fire Championship’ which is set to take place from 7 June.

The participant registration date has been extended till 1 June. Interested participants can register for the championship via https://dlg.lk/3vZdkd9. For more information, please visit the Dialog Facebook Page or the Sri Lanka Esports Facebook Page.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which restricted public gatherings in closed environments, SLESA’s All-Island Free Fire Championship has gained much traction as participants can play from remote locations in the comfort of their homes.

Featuring an attractive prize pool worth Rs. 1 Million, this district-level Esports tournament will act as a platform to identify and develop Esports athletes and will pave the way for them to compete in an international arena. The championship is organised around one of Sri Lanka’s most popular Esports titles – Free Fire, a multiplayer battle royale mobile game developed and published by Garena.

Speaking on the upcoming championship, Raveen Wijayatilake, President of SLESA stated: “The DIALOG-SLESA All-Island Free Fire Championship is a step forward in readying Sri Lanka’s Esports athletes for the global Esports revolution. We’re pleased to have Dialog joining us on this journey as we endeavour to keep the country on-par with our regional Esports competitors.”

As the official sponsor, Dialog Axiata has made arrangements to LIVE stream the matches via Thepapare.com, SLESA and Gamer.lk social media pages in the interest of all Esport lovers.
