The Far Eastern University - Institute of Technology has a quite special campus esports culture as its administration shares the love for esports with the student body.
Such an environment has contributed to iTamaraws Esports’ continued growth over the years. Founded in 2017, they regularly compete in collegiate tournaments and have been recognized by the school administration as a part of the Junior Philippine Computer Society.
“Aside from organizing tournaments on campus, we also took part in the Nexus GameCraft and Esports Expo last December,” says iTamaraws coach Emmanuel Jose Malilay. “It was one of the biggest events we’ve ever held.”
Aside from Nexus, the FEU-IT admin also hosts the yearly iTam GameCon that raises funds for certain communities.
Surely, the esports community in FEU-IT is doing well, but the iTamaraws know for a fact that they can do even better.
“We have been working with AcadArena these past few months and we know we will be in good hands by joining the Alliance,” says Malilay. “It’s been challenging with the pandemic happening but we always somehow find a way to make things work.”
They may be focused on their preparations ahead of the AcadArena Alliance League, but iTamaraws Esports is also keen on safeguarding the future.
“I want to give the organization more stability for the sake of the upcoming batches,” Malilay adds. “I want to give them not just the opportunity to dream, but the means to achieve them.”
Watch the Alliance League starting July 25 at 2 PM to 9 PM in twtich.tv/acadarenaph. Viewer prizes will be up for grabs. Want to do th same for your campus? Apply for the Alliance Program here.
