MOONTON Games, Smart team up for MPL-PH Season 8

Smart Communications, Inc. and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang developer, MOONTON Games, once again collaborated for the 8th season of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Philippines (MPL-PH), the country’s largest mobile esports league starting on August 27.

As the official telco partner of the MPL-PH Season 8, Smart will enable fans to watch the action-packed MPL-PH Season 8 matches on Smart’s Facebook page.

Fans can also expect exciting promos, skin giveaways, exclusive updates, and freebies.

Eight teams are set to duke it out in a round-robin format for a shot at the championship. These teams include Blacklist International, Bren Esports, Onic PH, RSG PH, Echo Philippines (Formerly Aura PH), Nexplay Evos (Formerly Nexplay Esports), TNC Pro Team (Formerly Work Auster Force), and Smart Omega.

Prior to MPL-PH Season 8, Smart and MOONTON Games teamed up for the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) in June, where two Filipino teams – Execration and Blacklist International – rose to the top with the former bagging the championship, edging out 10 of the best teams from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Smart and MOONTON Games have also partnered for the previous MPL-PH seasons and made strategic collaborations to delight mobile gamers and fans since half a decade ago, betting on a bright future for mobile games and esports.

“We are very happy to partner with MOONTON once again for another exciting season of MPL-PH. We go as far back as 2016 and together, we’ve seen the tremendous growth of Mobile Legends and esports in our country, turning from just a hobby to a legitimate sports whose viewership and fandom now compare to big sports events like basketball and volleyball. We have also witnessed how Filipino esports athletes developed and made their mark not just here but also in the international arena,” said Lloyd Manaloto, FVP/Group Head, Corporate Marketing & Strategy at Smart.

“As we strengthen our partnership, you can rely on Smart to continue providing a platform that enables gamers and esports fans to pursue their passions and chase their dreams – powered by the country’s fastest mobile data network as well as the fastest and most reliable 5G network,” he added.

Over the past few years, Smart has proven its strong commitment and support to the Philippine esports community by partnering with game creators and esports tournament organizers here and abroad, delighting subscribers with exclusive offers, and actively playing a role in the Philippine Esports Organization (PESO), the official National Sports Association that governs and develops esports for the over 43 million gamers in the country.

Earlier this year, Smart launched its Double GIGA Games promo, which gives Smart and TNT subscribers 2 GB of data every day for seven days to access their favorite mobile games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, plus 2 GB of open-access data for only P99.
