To car buyers, the LausGroup is probably best known for its wide-reaching Philippine dealership network made up of several major car brands. The company is more than just about selling autos, though.

For example, did you know that it has its own esports team? In fact, the LausGroup Eagles are already eyeing a berth in an NBA 2K tournament in the US next month.

The team is looking to compete in the 2022 Coinbase NBA 2KL Steal in Indianapolis this August. Led by coach Al Timajo and manager Ian Seranilla, the Eagles—made up of Isaiah Vincent  Alindada, Dominic Penaflorida, and Paolo Jerald Madronio—are fresh off being crowned this year’s APAC Steal Open Qualifiers champions.
