The Nationals, one of the premiere esports tournaments in the Philippines, has announced that it is adding the Call of Duty: Mobile Philippine Open to its game lineup for 2022.
Starting with its Challenger and Academy tournament series, grassroots and student gamers will be able to compete for a chance to become part of The Nationals pro teams, ushering in the next generation of CODM pro players.
Players from these winning teams will be eligible for selection in the draft, where pro teams can add them to their rosters for the pro league, offering a great opportunity to become the next superstar.
