Lenovo Singapore hosted its first-ever all-female esports tournament over the weekend in Lenovo’s Flagship store in Funan.
Christened the Legion of Valkyries (LoV), this all-female semi-pro tournament for Counter-Strike: Global (CS: GO) is part of Lenovo and Intel’s wider Legion of Champions (LoC) tournament.
Speaking to Clifford Chong, Lenovo’s Gaming Category Manager of Lenovo Asia Pacific, he explained that while League of Champions is opened to everyone, the number of female gamers who sign up for it are still a minority.
With LoC entering its fourth year, the League of Valkyries is one of Lenovo’s way of making esports more accessible to female gaming enthusiasts and semi-pro gamers alike.
At the LoV Singapore local competition itself, the gaming area within Lenovo’s flagship store was packed with supporters of competing teams.
