The inaugural Southeast Asia Clash of Champions is set to go down at the Suntec City Convention Centre next weekend, May 18-19. Six top Mobile Legends teams from the region will compete for a US$11,000 prize pool, with one local team showcasing their skills before the 2019 SEA Games.

Those representative teams include Indonesia’s PSG RRQ and Team Flash, Malaysia’s Geek Fam, Philippines’ Cignal Ultra, and Myanmar’s Burmese Ghouls.

“These are all the top teams from around the region and will be a good preview for esports at the SEA Games in the Philippines. There will be plenty of action and we do urge fans to come on down next weekend,” said Reddentes managing partner, Yip Renkai.

Prize Distribution:

  • Champions – US$5,000
  • First Runners-up – US$2,500
  • 3rd & 4th Placing – US$1,000 each
  • 5th Placing – US$750
  • 6th Placing – US$500
  • Tournament MVP – US$250

While the matches will be broadcast online and on Toggle and eGG, fans at the venue can look forward to exclusive in-game goodies by Mobile Legends developer Moonton.

There’s also the prospect of giving home ground support to the sixth participant, EVOS Esports SG. Comprising students and young adults – some of whom hail from previous professional teams – the five-person EVOS SG recently won the Singapore Esports Association’s national selections for Mobile Legends, one of the five medal esports at the upcoming 2019 SEA Games in Philippines.

EVOS captain Robert “OhDeerBambi” Boon commented that, compared to the Indonesian powerhouses, the team only gets to train 2 hours a day amid busy school schedules.

“It’s going to be hard, but we will definitely try our best and find the time to train and make Singapore proud.”
