Dubbed the “Land of Gamers in the Maldives”, the platform aims to enable the gaming community in the Maldives to connect them to opportunities in the gaming space. The occasion was marked with a special ceremony held at Dharubaaruge in attendance of Dr. Abdulla Mausoom, Minister of Tourism, as well as the management team of Ooredoo Maldives and key members of the Maldivian gaming community.
“The transforming gaming industry has opened up various opportunities around the world. Today, we have reached a milestone here in the Maldives that will provide the local gaming community with endless possibilities,” said Khalid Al-Hamadi , Managing Director and Commercial Director of Ooredoo Maldives.
“The launch of Ooredoo Nation in the Maldives is an important step in empowering the local gaming community to become industry professionals and reach greater heights. We are committed to becoming an industry pioneer and to enable the growth of the Maldivian gaming community.”
Leveraging Ooredoo’s 5G network as well as local and international partnerships, Ooredoo Nation brings all gaming elements together in one platform. This includes game packs (PUBG, Garena Free Fire, Mobile Legends, Call of Duty and Roblox), gift cards (iTunes, Nintendo and PlayStation) and content services, Ooredoo Nation will organize local and international tournaments for players.
The first local tournament called PUBG Mobile offers a prize of 100,000 MVR ($6,493). A series of PUBG tournaments will follow where participants will level up, increasing their prize pool as they move up the leaderboard.
In a similar vein, earlier this month, Ooredoo Group selected Icertis, a contract intelligence firm, to support it in its enterprise-wide digital transformation.
Specifically, Ooredoo uses Icertis Contract Intelligence (ICI) to streamline its contract management across its operations in Qatar, Algeria, Kuwait, Maldives, Myanmar, Palestine and Tunisia.
