The strategic partner for the event was Gamer.LK. The SLESA Invitational was a part of the Global Esports Federations’ World Connected Series, which had Esports Federations across the world conducting Esports competitions in association with the initiative.
The Red Bull MEO Sri Lanka finals concluded in the wee hours of 20th of December 2020, with 24 teams connecting remotely to compete for a spot in the Red Bull MEO World Finals. WG B2R came out on top in the points table after 6 matches of intense PUBG Mobile action. The leaderboard was in constant flux and a final winner didn’t stand out until the end of the 6th match – a testament to how close this competition was with Sri Lanka’s top competitive teams taking part.
The significance of WG B2R winning this event is the fact that they are a 100% Sri Lankan team. Red Bull MEO country qualifiers allowed non-Sri Lankan nationals in team rosters, therefore we saw mixed teams with players from the United States, India, Pakistan, Maldives, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
