MOONTON Games and IO ESPORTS have jointly announced the official launch of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Academy League Malaysia (MAL MY).
The MAL MY functions as the developmental leg of the Malaysian Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) esports league system – after the MLBB Professional League (MPL) Malaysia – and aims to build the esports talent pipeline in the nation by providing young and talented players with a more structured and competitive entry into the world of professional esports.
The MAL MY will act as the bridge between grassroots and national-level esports. It will unite the nation’s top third-party community tournaments by inviting their strongest representatives to battle for spots in the biggest national MLBB competitive stage – the MPL Malaysia.
The launch of the MAL MY also introduces a promotion and relegation system between MAL MY and MPL Malaysia; the developmental league teams will compete for qualification to Season 14 of MPL Malaysia, which takes place in the second half of 2024.
Season 1 of the MAL MY will follow the tournament format of MPL Malaysia and will take place in three stages – Open Qualifiers in February, Regular Season in March, and Playoffs in May.
The MAL MY is MOONTON Games’ latest initiative to elevate the esports talent pipeline in high-growth regions. It is the publisher’s third development league and follows the respective launch of MLBB Development League (MDL) Philippines in 2023 and MDL Indonesia in 2020.
