Smart and MOONTON Games Renew Partnership for MPL Philippines

Smart Communications, Inc. and international gaming developer and publisher MOONTON Games have teamed up for the seventh consecutive year for the much-anticipated 2024 Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL) Philippines tournaments.

The renewed partnership kicked off on March 15 with the opening of MPL-PH Season 13, which will pit eight teams, namely AP.Bren, Blacklist International, ECHO, Minana EVOS, ONIC Philippines, RSG Philippines, Smart Omega, and TNC Pro Team.

Season 13 will introduce a new playoff format known as “The Gauntlet”, where the top three seeded teams will advance directly to the Upper Bracket Semifinals. The fifth and sixth teams will play against each other, with the winner then challenging the fourth team for the coveted spot.

Bringing Filipinos closer to their passions

Smart’s team-up with MPL Philippines is part of their commitment to support the growth of Philippine esports through tournaments, strategic partnerships, and relevant products and services for mobile gamers.

As the official mobile partner of MPL-PH, Smart will stream all the games—from the playoffs to the finals—on its official Facebook page, enabling Filipino esports fans and enthusiasts to catch the matches on the go and rally behind their favorite MLBB esports teams and players. Smart will also be giving away special prizes, treats, and epic gaming experiences to viewers throughout the season.

Smart’s longstanding partnership with MOONTON Games is part of their thrust in bringing the best mobile gaming experiences to Filipinos, powered by their world-class mobile network. According to Smart’s Head of Consumer Wireless Business, Alex O. Caeg, the company’s initiatives have proven time and again that with the right support, training, and mindset, Filipinos can dominate the world of esports.

Smart’s SVP for Consumer Wireless Business Kristine A. Go added that this collaboration between the Telco giant and MOONTON Games puts the Telco giant in the best position to empower Filipino esports athletes and aspiring gamers as they level up their gameplay and reach new heights in their passion for esports.

MOONTON Games Philippines Head of Esports Baizhou Ning expressed that the gaming developer’s longstanding partnership with Smart is a testament to their shared commitment to constantly innovate and elevate the esports scene in the Philippines, as well as foster an industry that continues to innovate and break barriers for MOONTON Games’ fans.
