The grand finals for the Mobile Legends Gulf Cup (MLGC) is fast approaching. A celebrity showmatch will be held during the grand finals featuring Saudi Arabia’s popular football stars Yasser AlQahtani and Manaf Aboshgair. The two football stars will play as team captains for their respective teams.
The combined force of two widely different sports scenes, MLBB and Football, was a carefully orchestrated plan. On Nov. 29, the Saudi national team announced that MLBB had become an official esport game of the Saudi National Team (SNT).
“Football and MLBB have many commonalities, focusing on competitive spirit, pursuit of victory, emphasizing team spirit, and we hope we could convey the spirit of sports competition to all the world along with MLBB. said Nadim, the manager of SNT.”
The team captains will lead a group of content creators and influencers as they battle it out and prove who is the best in the MLGC Celebrity Showmatch.
Yasser AlQahtan, former captain of the Saudi National football team, will act as the red team’s captain. The team members are oCMz, Saudi brothers, Ahmed Show, and safah9.
“The game really helped me to regain the excitement of fighting with the teammates on the field,” said Yasser AlQahtan. The football star also said that he has been playing the game for quite a time, and when he got the invitation from MLBB, he didn’t even hesitate to accept their invitation.
Manaf Aboshgair, a former member of SNT, will act as the blue team’s captain. The team members are MjrmGames, TMFaisal, Rima, and Haman.
Just like football, MLBB requires teamwork and trust in your teammates. The two sports may be completely different but they carry the same goal in mind: working and winning as a team.
The MLGC 2020 is the first official Mobile Legends: Bang Bang(MLBB) Esports Tournament for the Middle East. Teams from all over the middle east will compete for a prize pool of $15,000 USD.
The tournament’s grand finale will be held on Dec. 25, 2020. For news and updates about the event, check out the official Discord and Facebook page of MLBB. The event will be streamed live on their YouTube channel and its official Facebook page.
