The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) is coming to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region soon. After MPL Brazil, this will be the second MPL held outside of Southeast Asia (SEA). Shortly after the conclusion of the M3 Arabia Major, when the crowned champion, Akatsuki, received a ticket to the M3 World Championship, the Mobile Legends Arabia YouTube Channel made the major announcement. The MPL MENA will begin with a spring split that will take place before the end of the year, followed by the University Esports League and the Fall Split in 2022.
MPL MENA dates, prizepool and other details
Each year, the MPL MENA will have two splits: a Spring Split and a Fall Split. The first split will take place in November 2021, followed by the second split in September 2022.
Teams competing in the MPL MENA’s inaugural season will be vying for a piece of the $200,000 USD prize fund.
The MPL will also be hosting the University Esports League sometime in May 2022. Teams from major colleges and universities in the MENA region will be featured in this tournament for a grand showcasing of competitive skill.
Moonton will be revealing more details about the upcoming MPL MENA at a later date.
Mobile Legends Esports shall expand outside the SEA region
Moonton is now ready to deliver Mobile Legends esports to a larger audience by staging MPL Leagues in locations outside of Southeast Asia after five years of success. Outside of SEA, Brazil was the first region to obtain its own MPL League, followed by MENA.
Given the popularity of the just ended NA Qualifiers for the M3 World Championship, a prospective North American (NA) MPL League could be a possibility shortly. The BloodThirstyKings team won the qualifications event and secured a spot in the upcoming M3 World Championship.
