Southeast Asia is one of the fastest-growing markets for mobile esports and with Team SMG, we are confident in building a place where we can cultivate and grow local talent in the region, starting with MLBB, and expanding to other games soon.
Kenchi Yap, CEO of Team SMG.
The MLBB team – known as Team SMG as well – will compete in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League – Malaysia and Singapore (MPL-MY/SG) Season 5, featuring a total prize pool of RM410,000.
The team is coached by Ahmad “Bonezzyy” Syazwan Bin Anuar, and managed by Muhamd “Padel” Fadil Bin Hishamuddin.
This surprising acquisition should grant more exposure to MPL-MY/SG by featuring more Team SMG MLBB’s news.
Team SMG was founded by Singaporean singer JJ Lin, alongside former Dota 2 player and coach, CEO Kenchi Yap. Established in 2017, the team quickly rose to prominence in the esports scene after winning the Arena of Valor (AoV) International Championship in 2017.
