We will also see other official leagues take place such as the Mobile Legends Turkiye Championship and the M Challenge Cup.
MOONTON introduces MLBB Academy League Malaysia (MAL MY)
Simultaneously, the MLBB Developmental League (MDL) for the Philippines and Indonesia will occur. Another upcoming tournament to look forward to is Malaysia's new developmental league.

After the first half of 2024 ends, we'll see the ESL Snapdragon Pro Series take over June 2024. It is a tournament designated to connect the pros and the semi-pros together.
MSC rebranded to Mid Season Cup, bigger and more globalized
Another huge change for 2024 is the rebranding of the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup to Mid Season Cup. This rebrand serves to expand the tournament beyond Southeast Asia and for the first time in history, this event will take place outside of the region.
On top of that, the 2024 MSC will field more teams and bigger prize pool, as stated in the announcement video. This change took place for the MLBB esports scene to be more inclusive to other regions.
A busy second half year for MLBB esports
In August 2024, MOONTON will organize its third MLBB official tournament for women, the MLBB Women's Invitational. Next, we'll see the second season of MPL and official MOONTON leagues across regions all over the world.
This builds up to the next ESL Snapdragon Pro Series, open to amateurs and semi-pros. The International Esports Federation will continue its annual esports tournaments in an olympic fashion. The 16th iteration of the IESF will host Mobile Legends as one of its titles, set to take place in November 2024.
