Gen.G to launch Shanghai NBA 2K League team

NBA 2K League press release NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, SEOUL AND SHANGHAI – The NBA 2K League today announced that Gen.G, the global esports organization connecting the best gamers in the U.S. and Asia, will launch an NBA 2K League team from Shanghai that will join the other 22 NBA 2K League teams for the 2020 season. The Shanghai franchise will be the centerpiece of a long-term strategic relationship between the NBA 2K League and Gen.G that will mobilize Gen.G’s multicultural brand and multi-title esports presence to expand the global footprint of the first official esports league operated by a U.S. professional sports league. Gen.G’s team, which will train at Gen.G’s Los Angeles HQ during the 2020 season, will be the first NBA 2K League team outside of North America.   Gen.G, whose investors include LA Clippers alternate governor Dennis Wong and whose teams compete in seven other major titles, is also the first NBA 2K League team not affiliated with an NBA team. Gen.G’s NBA 2K League team will be Gen.G’s second esports franchise (joining Seoul Dynasty of the Overwatch League) and second entry in Chinese esports (China Clash Royale League). We’re excited to welcome @GenG to the NBA 2K League as they launch a team from Shanghai!— NBA 2K League (@NBA2KLeague) September 27, 2019 “This is a historic moment in the NBA 2K League’s journey to becoming a truly global league with fans, franchises and players from all over the world,” said NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue. “Gen.G is the ideal organization to launch our first team from outside of North America, and we look forward to working with Gen.G to reach new fans in Shanghai and identify elite talent across Asia.” “We are honored to help lead the NBA 2K League’s expansion into Asia and proud to represent Shanghai on behalf of the hundreds of millions of Chinese fans who love basketball and video games,” said Chris Park, CEO of Gen.G. “Gen.G’s unique core mission -- to connect esports fans and athletes across the U.S. and Asia -- is meant for ambitious ventures like this.  We have big plans to help grow the NBA 2K League in communities around the world that are passionate about basketball and video games.” In addition to launching the Shanghai franchise, Gen.G and the NBA 2K League today announced a long-term relationship to grow the NBA 2K League’s global player pool and fanbase. As part of the terms, Gen.G will collaborate with the NBA 2K League on player development and talent identification in Asia, brand development in Asia, and worldwide esports and gaming programming. Together, the NBA 2K League and Gen.G will build a world-class pipeline for the next generation of great Asian players, develop NBA 2K League content for the more than 12 million followers of Gen.G’s global esports portfolio and the NBA 2K League’s global audience, and promote the NBA 2K League to fans around the world. Today’s announcements are also important milestones for inclusion and professionalism in esports, values that the NBA 2K League and Gen.G have championed individually and will champion together through this strategic relationship. In August, the NBA 2K League held its first-ever development camp for elite female NBA 2K players at the NBA 2K League Studio in New York City, and Gen.G announced its all-women Fortnite team – Gen.G Empowered by Bumble (Team Bumble) – as part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to driving women’s empowerment in gaming and esports. Gen.G and Hornets Venom GT, the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets, will participate in the NBA 2K League Expansion Draft Lottery on Friday, Oct. 4. Additional details about Gen.G’s NBA 2K League team will be announced at a later date.

Diocese of Balanga marks Christian Unity Week from Jan. 18 to 25

   The Diocese of Balanga in Bataan will observe Christian Unity Week from Jan. 18 to 25. Bishop Ruperto Santos (CBCP / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN)    In a Diocesan Pastoral Directive, Balanga Bishop Ruperto C. Santos said priest formators from the Virgen Milagrosa del Rosario College Seminary will present and share their reflections on the Encyclical Letter of His Holiness, Pope Francis Fratelli Tutti.  The reflections, through the assistance of the diocese’s Ministry on Social Communications, are pre-recorded and may be downloaded on YouTube during the observance of Christian Unity Week.      Santos said the presentation and reflection will be made by  Father Jason Balan – Chapter One: Dark Clouds over a Closed World and Chapter Two: A Stranger on the Road; Father Joseph Quicho – Chapter Three: Envisaging and Engendering an Open World Moving Beyond Ourselves; Chapter Four: A Heart Open to the Whole World; Father Ramon Mariano – Chapter Five: A Better Kind of Politics; Chapter Six: Dialogue and Friendship in Society Social Dialogue; Father Rosauro Guila – Chapter Seven: Paths of Renewed Encounter Starting Anew from the Truth the Art and Architecture of Peace,  and Chapter Eight: Religions at the Service of Fraternity in our World the Ultimate Foundation.    “In order to build a better, just, and peaceful world, our Holy Father with his Fratelli Tutti fosters and highlights fraternity and social friendship. As one family in this world, all must work towards peace, that is, avoiding and declaring no to war, rejecting globalized indifference,” Santos said.    “It is in this devastating and dangerous time of the COVID-19 pandemic that all can show and act as brothers and sisters to one another. No one is ignored. No one is forgotten nor left behind. But all are helped. All are given hope. And they can feel and act as their brother’s keeper (Genesis 4,9). With Fratelli Tutti, we are one and united. We belong to each other and we need one another. With the grateful heart and open hand, let us listen to the valuable reflective sharing of our Virgen Milagrosa del Rosario College Seminary priest-formators,” he said......»»
