One of the popular smartphone brands in the Philippines, Realme announced that it will be hosting a showmatch featuring Blacklist International’s Sibol squad going up against an undisclosed team. The showmatch will be held during the grand finals of the Realme Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Cup (RMC) Season 6 scheduled to be held on 5th June. Realme is yet to reveal which team will face the Blacklist Sibol squad.

RMC Season 6 Grand Finals Showmatch details

Realme announced through its official Facebook handle on 2nd June that the finale of its seasonal event will feature the fan favorite Blacklist Sibol squad going up against a mystery team. The showmatch will be held at the SMX Convention Center on 5th June at 10 AM (PHT).

“It's official! Our SEA games gold medalists Team MLBB SIBOL is coming to RMC Season 6 Grand Finals this Sunday!,” Realme captioned.

Realme is yet to confirm if it will be accepting a live audience at the venue. However, fans can also tune in to the action through a live broadcast by heading to the official page of Realme.

While Realme did not reveal the name of the contender, a few hints have led to the conclusion that it may be the BTK squad who just recently arrived in the Philippines.

BTK’s team captain Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun recently discussed his thoughts on facing the Blacklist Sibol squad in one of his livestreams. While he’s not confident that his squad can easily defeat the SEA Games gold medalists, he stated “it’d be nice to beat a gold medalist.”

The NA squad previously scrimmed with Dogie’s Aether squad which resulted in a 0-4 loss for BTK. Dogie revealed that BTK was able to keep up quite easily with the PH team during the early stages of the game but eventually lost its momentum in the late game. The former Nexplay EVOS coach revealed that if BTK is given at least a week’s worth of practice in the Philippines, they could potentially be a formidable team.
