Set to begin on 27 November, the tournament will span two action-packed weekends with the finals culminating on 6 December 2020.

I thank the Ministry of Tourism & Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia for supporting our mission to share and celebrate the stories of esports heroes who ignite the world with strength, hope, dreams, and inspiration. Without them, delivering this first-of-its-kind competition to the esports community would not be possible.”

Esports is developing at an extremely fast pace in Southeast Asia, and we are so grateful to have our partners, teams, players, and community for showing their support and commitment to the MPL ecosystem. We saw a big increase in our peak concurrent users with Indonesia hitting 2.8 million and Philippines hitting over 700,000 in our latest MPL. We look forward to breaking another record and bringing MLBB esports into the international esports stage.”
