Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC), the region’s elite Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) tournament, is on June 19 through the 23rd at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.
“MLBB fans here in the Philippines have shown great love for the game and the level of MLBB esports talent here is outstanding. In fact, MSC 2018’s 1st and 2nd place winners were both Filipino teams,” said JJ Lin, Esports Manager, Moonton.
MSC will see 12 invited teams from nine different Southeast Asian countries compete for the prestigious title of MSC Champion. Aside from the Philippines, these are Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
To date, the confirmed teams are Onic Esports and Louvre Esports from Indonesia (1st and 2nd place winners at MPL-ID Season 3), as well as Malaysia’s Geek Fam and Singapore’s EVOS Esports SG (1st and 2nd place winners at MPL-MY/SG Season 3).
“Besides being the main venue of the Philippines Basketball Association, The Big Dome has provided a stage for some truly historic events, such as the ‘Thrilla In Manila’ where boxing legend Muhammad Ali fought Joe Frazier in 1975,” said Lin. “From sports to esports, we’re excited to bring the very first esports event to the iconic venue.”
The entire tournament including the group stages will be streamed live on Facebook at the official Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Facebook page.
