MPL finally arrives in the Philippines with PHP 5 Million in total prize pool.
The Philippine Mobile Esports scene is getting bigger by the prize pool as Moontoon, together with the Mineski Events Team team-up together for the Philippine Leg of the Mobile Legends Professional League. Announced officially through a press-conference early this week, the Mobile Legends Professional League is a national competition featuring some of the best Mobile Legends teams in the country and will boast a total prize pool of USD 100,000 or roughly PHP 5,000,000.
The tournament will run for roughly 8 weeks starting this April, with the main event to be held in late June 2018. The tournament is divided into 3 main phases, the Qualifier stage, the Regular Season and the Main Event. The qualifier stage will kick-off this coming April 14, 2018, and will take place every Saturday and Sunday up until April 29, 2018. The winning teams from the Qualifier Stage will then compete in the Regular Season, with the highest ranking teams to then battle it all out in the Main Event in late June 2018.
The Mobile Legends Professional League is dubbed as the first stand-alone professional competitive event for Mobile Legends ever since their launch into popularity last year. The mobile MOBA title has easily become one of the most popular and most downloaded mobile titles in the region.
