The SuperGamerFest (SGF) is a first-of-its-kind livestreamed online festival happening on December 5-6 and 11-13, 2020 created by, with and for gamers in Southeast Asia, combining esports, awards, and fun.

One of the highlights and most anticipated events of SGF is the PVP Esports 2020 Community Championships hosted by Singapore. Four (4) winning teams from the Ulti Cup, University Alliance Cup, and National Campus Open will represent the Philippines against representatives from all over Southeast Asia in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) and Valorant.
