Telenor Pakistan has introduced GameBird, the largest esports platform in Pakistan, in an effort to strengthen the nation’s gaming ecosystem. Some of the biggest names in the business were present at the launch event, which took place at the Telenor campus at 345.
Sana Mir, a former captain of the women’s cricket team, attended as the main guest. The Pakistani gaming community included top esports athletes like Arsalan Ash, Haseeb aka HSB, Amu Shahid, and members of House of Blood.
With more than 50,000 active users and more than 140,000 unique visitors each month, GameBird is the only platform in Pakistan that provides online gaming tournaments with AAA-rated partners.
Video game players can now watch live streaming and take part in competitions, buy high-quality gaming gear, browse news, and do a lot more.
GameBird, Pakistan’s top gaming website, aspires to foster community and offers chances for talented players to demonstrate their prowess. Gamers also have access to international gaming arenas where they can display their skills.
Esports are already among the most well-liked industries globally, particularly among young people, and Pakistan is quickly catching up. The Pakistani esports ecosystem is thought to have more than 55 million users and 33 million gamers, making a significant contribution to the $200 billion global industry.
GameBird was created as a one-stop-shop for all gamers, and during its testing phase, it has already hosted more than 60 tournaments and 20 broadcasts.
Irfan Wahab Khan, Chief Executive Officer of Telenor Pakistan, said of the launch: “Pakistan’s online gaming market is thriving, and we have launched GameBird to support the national gaming community. It has been created to further our goal of going beyond connectivity and closing the talent gap between local and global opportunities by bringing all the fascinating facets of gaming within their reach.
GameBird will be the first and only platform of its kind in Pakistan, he continued, giving gamers across the nation the opportunity to investigate alternative revenue streams.
The launch event also featured a panel discussion on “Esports: The Future of Gameplay,” where game developers discussed the importance of creating local games and how quickly the industry is changing in Pakistan.
The panel also discussed the potential of holding game jams in Pakistan. Gamers were treated to a “Clash of Titles” gaming competition between top players in addition to the panel discussion. Prizes were given out to the winners of earlier GameBird competitions as the event came to an end.
The gaming and esports communities in Pakistan now have the chance to use a one-stop gaming platform thanks to GameBird. Through this platform, GameBird hopes to give Pakistan’s undiscovered talent more opportunities to compete on a global scale.
