Smart Communications, Inc. is the official telco partner for the upcoming 2023 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang tournaments after it extended its partnership with international gaming developer and publisher MOONTON Games.
Now on its sixth consecutive year, Smart’s partnership with MOONTON Games includes the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Philippines (MPL-PH) Seasons 11 and 12 set to happen this February and August, respectively; Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) in June; and the much-awaited M5 World Championship, which will take place in the country in the last quarter of the year.
Smart is also the official local telco partner for the newly added league, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Development League – Philippines (MDL-PH), the official amateur tournament league for esports players. This will serve as a breeding ground for promising amateur players to further bolster the dominance of the region in the esports scene.
Smart’s partnership kicked off with the start of the regular season MPL-PH Season 11 last February 17 and the debut of MDL-PH Season 1 last February 15.
The whole MPL-PH Season 11 and MDL-PH Season 1—from regular season matchups all the way to the playoffs and finals—will be available to stream on Smart’s official Facebook page. As a treat, Smart is also giving away special prizes to those watching the games.
