MLBB M2 World Championship to be held offline in Singapore in January 2021
CMD368 – The pinnacle of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports is coming to Singapore. Singapore will play host to the MLBB M2 World Championship in January 2021 as the best teams from around the world compete for the lion’s share of the $300,000 prize pool.
“Mobile Legends traces much of its global success today to its roots in Southeast Asia and Moonton is very pleased to bring this great news to gamers everywhere with much thanks to the support of the Singapore government and our industry partners. This will be our most exciting event ever as our top players embark on this epic journey to battle it out in Singapore”, said Justin Yuan, co-founder and Chief Executive of Moonton.
This is good news for Singapore which recently lost the chance to host a Dota 2 Major due to the ongoing global pandemic. Singapore currently holds one of the lowest rates of COVID-19 with a total of 58,228 cases and 29 fatalities reported in the country.
“Moonton’s confidence in hosting the M2 World Championship in Singapore is a testament to our reputation as a safe and trusted destination and we will continue to step up the necessary precautionary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all visitors,” Jean Ng, Executive Director, Attractions, Entertainment & Tourism Concept Development at STB said.
The country hasn’t hosted a major esports event since a year ago when the ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational took place in December 2019.
