It opens up a whole new level of possibilities!” stated Felippe Corradini, as quoted by Esports Insider.
Vivo Keyd has a lot of mobile esports titles under their wing such as Free Fire, PUBG Mobile, and League of Legends: Wild Rift.

A lot of Mobile Legends fans are familiar with DreamMax Esports, the Brazillian team that participated in the M2 World Championships. The team went home without the championship title but it left a pretty good impression that the Brazilian team is just as competitive as the esports teams from SEA.
Hosting the first MPL League outside the SEA region is a giant leap for the growth of the Mobile Legends esports scene. It will be interesting to see if MPL Brazil Season 1 will be able to recapture the hype that its SEA counterparts have delivered.
