TECNO recently concluded the first season of the GGWP Tournament (#GoodGameWithPOVA) powered by the POVA 5 Series. The Grand Finals happened last September 7, 2023 at the SM North Edsa Annex.
What is the TECNO GGWP?
The TECNO GGWP is an amateur Mobile Legends tournament hosted by TECNO Philippines with the goal of fostering aspiring gamers and giving them an avenue to hone their skills and talents and of course deliver an unparalleled gaming and entertaining experience for every Filipino just like the POVA 5 Series.
