The Nexplay EVOS partnership isn’t the first time EVOS Esports has collaborated with different esports organizations across Southeast Asia. Last February, the Singaporean-based group solidified a partnership with Malaysian team Suhaz Esports for MPL MY Season 7.

EVOS Esports also has a foothold in Singapore with EVOS SG and Indonesia with EVOS Legends. Both teams won the MPL Season 6 trophy in their respective regions.
