Ace Pro Gaming’s flagship program “Ma Esto” will officially kick-off in April this year with four programs set to take part in a rigorous developmental structure developed by Ace Pro league department. Today, Ace Pro through its FIFA Division announced that the programs (Game Parlours) selected to feature in the Developmental League will be franchised as Esports Organizations (teams).
The program (Ma Esto) debuted last year during the e-Lig Series: University weekends with a structured plan to develop a franchised league based on estate gaming parlors (lounges) playing as teams.
“Franchising gaming parlors as programs and teams will make it easy for many players to enter competitions held by Ace.”
Ace Pro League Department also acknowledges the difficulty of owning hardware and games as a hindrance to enter online competitions and regularly practice offline competitions. “Incorporating selected gaming parlors into the Ma Esto program is not only a step closer to giving players ease of practicing and competing, but also creating gaming communities at the grassroots level,” says Fanuel, Head of Leagues.
Apart from having rigorous training and developmental structures internally, the programs will be going up against each other on selected days set up in the schedule. The competition will have a unique ranking and payout system that increases competition and engagement.

It is no doubt that soccer (English Premier League to be exact) remains the king of consumed sports in Kenya. The number of fans is visible during the weekends in bars, restaurants, watch parties (at their homes), and mostly on social media throwing banter in all directions. The EPL and other foreign leagues in Kenya are becoming a culture exhibited through fashion and conversations in many social circles.
With no doubt, many FIFA players in Kenya identify their game strategies to players and teams featuring in the franchise, and with this history, we chose to merge the two divisions (Traditional sports and Esports) to bring you the ace pro gaming simulation competitive division. Ace Pro through the e-Lig Series will stage the first simulation division match a day before the UCL Seni-Finals 2021 set for April-May
The program acknowledges many FIFA players in Kenya (Nairobi) are avid soccer fans and follow leagues and competitions. With this, we bring you a simulation FIFA (kick-off mode) match played by players that will feature in the Ma Esto program.
HOW WILL IT BE PLAYED?
The programs participating will get direct slots for the simulation match. The program ranked number one will get a chance to select the team to use. The formula will be used for programs ranked 2,3 and 4.
“The UCL simulation match adds a competitive edge of the league program giving parlors a reason to fight for the top slots but targeting the number one spot that comes with the benefits of selecting first,” says Fanuel, Head of Leagues. He adds “With the UEFA Champions League going into its second leg of the last 16 stage this month, players competing in the Ma Esto league program will be waiting to know which clubs will reach the final stage.”
“Compete & Dominate”
After a disappointing opening weekend last Friday, Njiru Charles of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture & Technology comes back to lead the Nairobi region team against unknown players from Western & Rift Valley Conferences.
