SeeYouSoon has won the top prize of 15,000 USD and earned the chance to compete on the international stage, in Cambodia’s first Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League tournament which was created as a result of a partnership between Smart Axiata and Montoon, the creator of Mobile Legends.
Cambodia’s inaugural fully fledged eSports tournament, which kicked off in July, drew to a close on October 3rd.

For four weeks, the top eight teams competed for points with the top six competing in playoffs and the Grand Final.
SeeYouSoon won the tournament having earned 3-2 over DG Quantum at the end of the season.
“It was awesome to compete in MPL! The competition was fierce but we triumphed as a team and we’re excited for the chance to face off with other great players from around the world. We will do our best to win and make Cambodia proud when we compete at the Mobile Legends M3 World Championship later this year,” said Sam Sophanny, MPL winning team captain/representative SeeYouSoon.
SeeYouSoon will compete against other international MPL champions from countries such as Brazil, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Singapore at the Mobile Legends M3 World Championship which takes place in December. SeeYouSoon was also crowned as the champion of Smart Kingdom of Legends 2020.
