The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) bring out school pride when it comes to athletic sports, but this time, Mineski, together with nVidia, Western Digital and Palit take it to a whole new level as they come up with another way for Universities to pull their colors proudly through competitive gaming in the form of the National Cyber Collegiate League (NCCL).

Now, with the help of RapturePH and Gameclub, Mineski will be bringing in the march of colors on the Pinoy Gaming Festival Summer Assembly! Which school will be the first NCCL Champion? Which one of them will be taking the P60,000 prize pool? Only time will tell!


Duno, of the Mineski Events Team, will be handling the stream and commentary as the school teams clash and will be bringing us an in depth look at the high-level plays. The NCCL is the first ever league in the country which will feature not only those who are capable of making it to the pro gaming scene, but also the students who are able to balance both eSports and their education. Events such as this would not only bolster the pride and passion of Filipinos but also shows its growth in our country! 


“We are very glad to be able to participate again in PGF 2012. Same as last year, we will do our best to be involved in big E-sports events wherein the talents of our PH gamers will be showcased to the public”

-Marlon Marcelo, Director of Mineski Events Team (MET)


"One of the reasons why the first PGF was so successful last year is because of the initial inclusion of Mineski. They were the first company that believe in our vision of working together with different companies/publishers. I believe that with their new league called the NCCL, the school's spirit/pride will surely be alive at the event. We are bracing for one big fight"

- Joebert Yu, Managing Director for RapturePH

But of course, that's not the only thing happening this Summer Assembly! Far from it! Along with the NCCL there will be other events for eSports!
