MANILA (UPDATED) -- Female esports teams across the Philippines will duke it out as the third season of all-women esports league Liga Adarna rolled out its third season this April -- with prize pool of P215,000 at stake. 

Telco giant Smart Communications Inc. has collaborated with Eplayment Entertainment for this season, the company said in a statement this Wednesday. 

The tournament, with the theme "Women Rising," will have female esports players nationwide playing across four titles such as hit multiplayer online battle arena games Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, League of Legends: Wild Rift, and first-person shooting games such as Valorant, and Call of Duty Mobile. 

“The latest season of Liga Adarna is in line with Smart's longstanding support for the fast-growing Philippine esports scene to cultivate the passion, skill, and talent of Filipino gamers,” Smart said in a statement.
