VOV Gaming to become presenting partner for MLBB MPL MENA

Game Developer MOONTON has announced that Saudi Arabian company VOV Gaming will act as a presenting partner for the fall split of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League MENA (MPL MENA).

VOV Gaming, a gaming venue company owned by the Savvy Games Group, will host the entirety of the tournament in its venues and offer marketing support for the league for its 2023 Fall Split.

MPL MENA is the official regional league for MOONTON’s mobile MOBA title Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. The league’s upcoming Fall Split will see eight regional teams compete for its $100,000 (~£79,200) prize pool and a chance to participate in the M5 World Championship, which will take place late in 2023 in Kuala Lumpur and the Philippines.

MPL MENA is a relatively young league, first formed in the fall of 2021. Although it is an official regional league for MLBB, the league has seen limited success in terms of viewership for its first splits. According to data and analytics company Esports Charts, the tournament did not break 10,000 peak viewers in Fall 2022.

The partnership with VOV Gaming aims to help grow the league further and secure more viewership for the events. VOV Gaming is an esports and gaming company focused on creating gaming and esports venues, with several locations in the Middle East. The company is also partnered with the Global Esports Federation and Premier League club Newcastle United.

Jerry Gamez, CEO at VOV Gaming, commented on the deal: “MPL MENA is renowned for giving aspiring esports athletes a platform to showcase their talents on the international stage. This dovetails perfectly with VOV, which is home to the next generation of gaming and esports venues and services.

“Through its offerings and partnerships with leading brands, VOV enables gamers of all genders, disciplines, and abilities to explore their passion, learn new skills, and unlock their potential. This season, players and fans can look forward to a supercharged competitive arena – one that empowers our athletes to soar beyond their limits.”
