MPL Brazil Has Been Officially Announced
The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) will soon make its way to Brazil. This was revealed by Lucas Mao, Managing Director of Global Esports at Moonton Games through a LinkedIn post on 26 June 2021. Official social media pages for MPL Brazil have also been launched on Twitter and Facebook hinting that the first season will kick off soon. The official start date of the upcoming MPL Brazil is yet to be announced. Mobile Legends has found some success in Brazil with the recent conclusion of the MLBB Brazil national Championship 2020 where DreamMax Esports dominated the scene, giving them a ticket to the M2 World Championships. Here’s everything we know so far about MPL Brazil.
Brazil Receives Its Own MPL Tournament
With the recent success of the MLBB esports scene courtesy tournaments such as the M2 World Championship and the MSC 2021, a new region joins the fight as Brazil will now have its own MPL Tournament. Brazil has some noteworthy MLBB esports teams like DreamMax who recently participated in the M2 World Championships. However, due to the massive difference in meta between the SEA teams and Brazil, DreamMax failed to win a single match during both the group stage and playoffs. Perhaps having their very own MPL tournament will help Brazillian teams to keep up with the meta and become an internationally competitive region.
The official social media handles of MPL Brazil are yet to announce the official start date of the tournament. However, according to their posts, the tournament is expected to kick off very soon. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for upcoming updates.
MLBB Brazil Esports in 2021
Brazil has its own MLBB esports ecosystem with its most recent pro league, the Brazil National Championship 2020. The region is mostly limited to national MLBB tournaments, unlike the SEA region that hosts regional championship events like the MSC 2021.
Mobile Legends may have found great success in the SEA region. However, the professional scene outside the region has yet to deliver the same hype as its SEA counterpart. Moonton continues to find ways to widen its reach outside Asia and potentially grow its MLBB esports ecosystem internationally.
Garena’s popular mobile battle royale game Free Fire has seen great success in Brazil’s esports scene with the peaked at around 2 million concurrent viewers with its Brazil YouTube live stream acquiring over 9.5 million views. It will be interesting to see if Mobile Legends will be able to deliver the same hype with the upcoming MPL PH Brazil.
