Local ‘Mobile Legends: Bang Bang’ teams, Team HAQ and TODAK recently travelled to Jakarta for the M4 World Championships. They were sent off at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) by representatives of MPL Malaysia, Ministry of Youth and Sports, Esports Integrated (ESI) and fans.
Finishing first and second respectively in MPL Malaysia Season 10, Team HAQ and TODAK are currently representing Malaysia in the prestigious championship featuring a prize pool of USD 800,000 and 16 international teams.
Present at the send off at KLIA were YB Adam Adli, Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Ahmed Faris Amir, Chief Executive Officer of ESI, Fadzli Rahim, Vice President Operations & Growth of ESI and Fikri Rizal Mahruddin, Marketing & Business Development Lead of MPL Malaysia.
“I am delighted to see our local esports team representing our country on the international stage. Their talent, determination, and teamwork inspire us all, and I have no doubt they will make us proud. It is also notable and worth mentioning that the growth of the local esports
ecosystem, especially teams, that thrived independently without prior government support is commendable. This shows the creativity and resourcefulness of these organisations, and they gain legions of fans because of that. I encourage all Malaysians to tune in to M4 and cheer on Team HAQ and TODAK as they compete against the best in the world.” said YB Adam Adli, Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports.
