Organised by Gamer.LK, the leader in eSports and digital entertainment experiences, SLCG marked its 10th consecutive championship. Celebrating a decade of eSports history, the event reached new milestones as it attracted over 3,000 cyber-athletes and competitive gamers from across the island to compete for the coveted championship trophy, the pinnacle of eSports achievements in Sri Lanka.

Rooted in humble beginnings with a few hundred participants in 2008, SLCG has grown into Play Expo Sri Lanka, the first digital entertainment & technology expo in Sri Lanka, consisting of various segments related to technology and experiences available for digital entertainment enthusiasts. SLCG saw the participation of over 300 teams who took part across 14 gaming titles, including popular titles such as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Dota 2, League of Legends, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, FIFA 17, Injustice 2, Mario Kart 8 and Clash Royale.

Sri Lanka has six main eSports clans - n00b alliance, Phoenix Gaming, Xiphos eSports, Maximum eSports, Tech Morph and Wolfgang eSports. After three days of intense, nail-biting action and fierce in-game rivalry, Phoenix Gaming emerged as the overall champions with n00b Alliance and Xiphos eSports securing the second and third places respectively.
