We successfully concluded the fifth season of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) in the Philippines and Indonesia, to all-time-high viewership!
MPL-Philippines’ fifth season became the most-watched Philippine esports event ever. It registered a peak online viewer count of 317,330 for the finals match between OnicPH and Sunsparks, the first back-to-back titlist in league history.
MPL Indonesia, also organized by Mineski Esports for Moonton Gaming, also enjoyed massive viewership numbers when it concluded. The ‘El Clasico’ match between RRQ and Evos in the playoffs generated 662,000 peak online viewers before topping it off with a peak viewer count of over one million during the grand finals wherein RRQ claimed the Indonesian championship.
The success of the MPL in the Philippines and Indonesia shows the potential of esports to be a major part of sports entertainment in the new normal in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have been working closely with Moonton Games since the establishment of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional Leagues in 2018. The league has produced some of the best players in the region when it comes to the mobile MOBA genre.
