“We are proud to present an avenue for students to be competitive in esports while remaining academically committed.”

For the first time, a university-level MLBB tournament at the Southeast Asian level was held. Titled Mobile Legends Collegiate Series, the competition was presented by Cyberathlete with a total cash prize of US$250,000 (over Rp3.55 billion).

As one of the biggest cash prize tournaments in the college esports market, Cyberathlete stated that it sees this as an “investment”, especially after the global esports industry has grown to over US$1 billion dollars annually.

When will the SEA Collegiate Mobile Legends Series take place?

The open qualifiers in Southeast Asia will start this month and continue through August 2021.

The top teams from each country will then compete in Collegiate Mobile Legends for three regular seasons, and all players are guaranteed to receive a salary.

Finally, after three regular seasons, the top four collegiate teams will battle it out in the World Collegiate Finals in December 2022 for a total cash prize of US$250,000.
