Where to watch

Fans can tune in to the M3 World Championship through the official YouTube Channel of Mobile Legends. The broadcast will feature multiple languages to cater to various regions.

Fans can also tune in to the esports event through the Mobile Legends app by heading to the Esports tab in the main menu.

Last year, the Philippines team Bren Esports took the crown of champions after taking down the Burmese team, Burmese Ghouls, through a major comeback resulting in a 2-3 final match score, in favor of the PH team.

The M3 World Championship will be an offline event and will be held in Singapore. Similar to last year’s world championship, Moonton is working with local authorities and the Singapore Tourism Board to ensure that the competition happens safely with all COVID-19 preventive measures in place.

It will be interesting to see who will take the championship title for the upcoming M3 World Championship, considering that there will be more regions participating in the event.
