MLBB SEA Cup 2023: Teams, format, and Rune Sentinel Atlas Skin

New regions and higher stakes. Who will be the champion in 2023?

The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) 2023 is almost here. From June 10 to 18, the top 12 teams from around the globe will be competing for a share of the prize pool and the title of champions. 

The MSC used to be a tournament only for SEA teams. MOONTON has decided to change that from 2023 onwards. The tournament has been expanded to include three more regions: Turkey, MENA, and North America. 

The MSC 2023 is happening at the Aeon Mall Mean Chey in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Entry is free for the group stage and the first two days of the Playoffs through the WOWNOW website. For the last two days of the Playoffs, you will need to purchase a ticket.
