Garena (Thailand) is a leading online game and social platform, through which users can access popular and engaging mobile and PC online games. Its Garena Free Fire game is highly popular in Thailand.

The number of mobile gamers has been dramatically growing, with an increase in the global gaming industry pegged at above 50 per cent in 2018 over the previous year, according to Newzoo.com.

The main reason for the huge growth is the rising number of mobile gamers. Playing games via mobile phones is easily accessible anywhere anytime and not restricted to sex or age, Sukannee Lertsukwibul, head of the prepaid market and product division at Total Access Communication Plc, or DTAC, said on Monday.

In this collaboration, DTAC becomes the official sponsor of an e-sports event for the first time as the main sponsor of “Free Fire Thailand Championship 2019 Presented by DTAC”. The grand launch will be held on April 6-7. The company is also the main sponsor of “Free Fire Proleague 2019 Presented by DTAC” out of a desire to help empower Thai gamers in order to increase their visibility on the global stage, she said.
