MPLSG returns for Season 4 with SGD$100,000 prize pool

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League in Singapore (MPLSG) is back for Season 4 with SGD$100,000 prize pool. The bi-annual event is now open for registrations, the Open Qualifiers opens on 10th August and ends on 18th August 2022. The top two teams from the qualifiers will join the top six teams from Season 3 to from the eight-team league for Season 4.

The local Singapore tournament will see MLBB veterans and homegrown favourites battle it out for a lion’s share of the SGD$100,00 prize pool and a chance to qualify for the M4 World Championship that would be held in January 2023. The qualifiers are open to everyone, so form your gaming/esports squad together and register at MPLSG.GG by 2359hrs, 18th August 2022.

MPLSG has teamed up with Zenway Productions, an award-winning esports broadcasting and events management company that has produced various tournaments and notable events. Zenway will be in charge of MPLSG’s league operations, broadcasting, talent management, and more – to deliver a memorable Season 4.

Jaime Cruz, Esports Lead at MPL Singapore, said: “We’re excited to bring back MPL Singapore Season 4 to local fans and esports professionals. The reception during last season’s playoffs was overwhelmingly positive, and we are looking to deliver more resonant, unique and lasting moments to our fans through offline and online campaigns.”

Lee Jian Ming, Managing Director of Zenway Productions, said: “We are honoured for the opportunity to partner MOONTON Games to run Season 4 and 5 and will work hand-in-hand to pursue our shared vision of building a sustainable, scalable and accessible esports ecosystem in Singapore.”

Top players from MPLSG are often selected to represent Singapore in national esports tournaments. At the recent Southeast Asia Games held in Hanoi in May 2022, 10 medals from eight esports games, including MLBB, were up for grabs. Singapore took a bronze for MLBB at the SEA games and many players representing Team Singapore were professional players from MPLSG.

“Esports is the new sports that is connecting youths of the world. It has gone mainstream and at MPLSG we are both celebrating the glory of esports talents and setting the stage to develop local heroes who will carry the pride of Singapore in national esports competitions,” added Mr. Lee.
