In order to jointly promote the development of the local esports business and improve the competitive gaming scene of the nation, international game developer and publisher MOONTON Games and the Esports Federation Cambodia (EFC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The signing, which took place at the Preah Vihear Hall for the Ministry of Information, aimed to lay the groundwork for a successful long-term partnership between MOONTON Games and the EFC in hosting MLBB esports competitions in the nation, including the medal event at the 32nd SEA Games in 10th May and the MSC 2023, which will begin on 10th June 2023.

The agreement was penned by His Excellency (H. E.) Chea Chanboribo, President of the EFC and Head of MOONTON Games' Esports Ecosystem, and Ray Ng.

"The success of MPL Cambodia has helped to strengthen the development of the esports ecosystem in Cambodia, and we are looking to take it one step further by bringing MSC 2023 to create more opportunities for local talents here," stated Ray. "We are excited to showcase the potential of Cambodian players to a global arena and to bring in global players to #SEATheWorld."

"I am pleased that the Esports Federation Cambodia and MOONTON Games jointly organized the signing ceremony of the MoU to establish a new partnership in organizing the MSC 2023 for the first time in Phnom Penh. The signing is part of a joint effort to develop the local esports industry and create more events in the country for athletes," said H.E. Chea Chanboribo. "The opportunity to host this major international event is a testament to the development of the Kingdom of Cambodia in general and in the field of esports. Thank you to MOONTON Games for co-organizing the event in Cambodia."
