Mobile Legends' M5 World Championship to be held in the Philippines


Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) developer MOONTON Games announced on Sunday (15 January) that the M5 World Championship will be hosted in the Philippines in December.

The announcement was made shortly before the grand finals of the M4 World Championship in Jakarta, Indonesia, which was fittingly an all-Filipino affair between defending champions Blacklist International and national rivals ECHO.

The M5 World Championship will be the culminating event of the 2023 MLBB esports season, which will feature over 260 days of competition across two league seasons and six major tournaments. MOONTON is also looking to add more as yet unannounced events to its calendar.

M5 will also mark the first time that MLBB's world championship tournament will be hosted in the Philippines, which has been the most dominant country in the scene for three years now.

Bren Esports claimed the Philippines' first MLBB world title in the M2 World Championship back in 2021.

Blacklist International then became the second Filipino team to claim a world title in the M3 World Championship in December of that year. The M3 grand finals was notably an all-Filipino affair, with Blacklist International sweeping ONIC Philippines.

The Philippines' dominance over the MLBB scene continues for another year as Blacklist International and ECHO battle to become the third Filipino team to claim the world title in consecutive years.

MOONTON has not yet confirmed the venue for the M5 World Championship.

The first-ever MLBB world championship tournament was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia back in 2019. The inaugural title was claimed by Indonesian team EVOS Legends.

The next two events, M2 and M3, were held in Singapore before the tournament was moved to Jakarta, Indonesia for M4.

JAKARTA, Indonesia – Mobile Legends’ most prestigious event has found its way to the Philippines.

The Philippines will gun for a fourth straight world title at home as it hosts the M5 World Championship in December, Mobile Legends developer Moonton announced on Sunday, January 15.

“We’ve been longing for that,” said Philippine Olympic Committee president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino, who flew here to attend the M4 grand finals.

“Maybe this M5 will be a different level of hosting. We’re really excited to host M5 after the pandemic. We’re really excited to host the big events.”

The Philippines is guaranteed of a third world title in a row as Blacklist International and Echo duke it out in all-Filipino grand finals for the M4 crown on Sunday.

Bren Esports ruled M2 and Blacklist International topped M3 in back-to-back world championships held in Singapore.

Malaysia hosted M1, where Indonesian squad EVOS Legends reigned supreme. –
