An issue no less is the quality of the equipment. In this new league we have national champions, former LLA teams and great professionals. This is why who participates in the league is not by chance, but by a open selection process, where the applications received were analyzed according to their sports, economic and communication project, as well as their history in different esports competitions. Regarding competitiveness, Ponte assures that this will take a process of adaptation. “The South Flow Regional League is a project that is currently made up of three countries (Argentina, Chile and Peru), and the teams that make up our tournament have made a great investment for this new project, they also prepared accordingly for this challenge.
