MPL - PH Season 6 Teams
Formerly known as Sunsparks, the league’s first-ever two-time grand champions will be entering the upcoming regular season donning the Aura-PH banner.
Despite continuously falling short of a podium finish, Execration will return this season still as one of the most anticipated squads in the MPL-PH.
A staple name in the league, Blacklist International looks to punctuate their run this upcoming season with a more memorable finish.
More than flaunting their new banner, Blu Fire, formerly known as ULVL, also seeks to test their newly-built mettle against the league’s best contestants.
Managed by prominent community figure, AkosiDogie, expectations are already set on NXP Solid and the only thing left for them to do is deliver.
With the addition of former ULVL captain Peter Bryce “Basic” Lozano on Onic-PH’s roster, the two-time silver finishers look to finally claim the elusive achievement.
This season, BREN Esports looks to reclaim the glory they once had with a relatively new brand of play.
Omega PH Esports
Omega PH Esports may not be as consistent in putting out significant finishes as compared to other teams in the league, but you can never count them out of the equation.
BSB looks to establish itself as a certified league staple this upcoming regular season after a relatively successful debut last season.
Cignal Ultra has once again proved that their “Comeback Kings” moniker is fitting for their squad, as they qualify once more for the biggest mobile esports league.
The prize pool will be broken down into:
- Champion - $25,000
- 2nd Place - $13,000
- 3rd Place - $7.000
