Over the weekend, SEAGM attended UTM Cyber War 2021 as the primary sponsor. The collegiate esports event aims to promote an interest in this new exciting field. Organized by the Sports and Recreation Bureau of University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), the event successfully attracted 906 participants.
What is the UTM Cyber War 2021?
Due to the current environment, what used to be a Local Area Network event had to change this year. The organizer decided to prioritize safety; they would turn this into a semi-online event. As such, only the prize-giving ceremony was a physical event.
In this year’s UTM Cyber War 2021, there were three featured with four different leagues. With a total of 906 people, the PUBG M Open had 64 teams, whereas the PUBG Women League has 21 teams. Next up, they also had Mobile Legends and Valorant, both having 40 teams.
In representation of SEAGM, Marketing Manager Raymond Foo took a trip down south to Johor. He presented prizes to the winner during the gift ceremony.
