Gamer.LK’s Inter-University Esports Championship 2019 powered by SLT Fibre concluded its qualifier phase this past weekend at Stein Studios. 50 universities signed up to battle it out for a spot at the grand finals, with the top 2 universities qualifying.

Out of the 13 titles played, both SLIIT and IIT managed top 3 positions in 5 titles each, confirming their grand final slots. APIIT came in a close 3rd place trailing the leaders by just a few points. NSBM took 4th place dashing their chance of a top 2 position when their PUBG Mobile teams failed to show up for the qualifier final.

The games throughout the 2 days were powered by high-speed SLT Fibre connectivity which were conducted smoothly and on schedule. The live stream, also powered by SLT Fibre, received over 100,000 viewers over the two days on facebook live and YouTube Gaming.

DELL Sri Lanka conducted a media launch of their DELL Gaming line of laptops. Popular Sri Lankan tech YouTuber Chanuxbro took to the stage to speak about their premium design with thin bezels and lightweight portability. Chrishan Fernando, country manager for Sri Lanka and Maldives and Sri Lanka marketing manager Ruwan Gamage also graced the occasion.

The Esports athletes were fueled by Energy Drink partner Red Bull throughout the 2 days, and their hunger kept at bay by Taco Bell and Pizza Hut who had sales stalls at the event. There to give some amazing cashback offers was FriMi with 30% cashback on event registration and 40% cashback on Tacos and Pizza!
