THE STAGE IS SET. Before victors from different countries enter the battlefield of the Special Force World Championship 2017, Team Philippines and Team Southeast Asia start their journey from their home countries to the beautiful Bangkok, Thailand.

Team Philippines Wagas Pikakz and Essence were sent off with the full force of their friends and family. As national champions and representatives to an international tournament, MOOSE, RR, JOMS, JEO and BJ of Wagas Pikakz and wes-, -Rjhay, EpicMazeII, tOngbanks- and Shyyy- of Essence had a lot of responsibilities to bear.

Despite being tournament veterans, for some of them, it will be their first time flying. Its both scary, exciting and possibly troubling for the stomach.

Upon arriving at the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, the Teams spared no time taking in the beautiful sights and making lasting memories.

However, Day 1 of the Special Force World Championship 2017 journey was not all fun and games. On the same day, all the participating teams gathered at the Baiyoke Sky Hotel for their briefing, photo and video shoot and of course, to meet their match in the Groupings.
