The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Invitational (MPLI) is one of the biggest international MLBB tournaments, jointly hosted by Moonton and ONE Esports.

This event has been a consistent presence in the MLBB esports calendar since its inception in 2020.

The victors of the MPLI will be awarded the lion’s share of the US$100,000 prize pool.

Last year, Indonesia’s ONIC Esports secured back-to-back MPLI championships after a thrilling grand final showdown against fellow Indonesians Geek Fam.

The tournament will have two phases: the group stage and the playoffs.

During the group stage, the 16 participating teams will be placed into four separate groups, with the placement of these teams determined by fan voting.

In the group stage, matches will be played in a best-of-one, round-robin format, allowing each team to face every other team in their group at least once.

At the conclusion of the group stage, the highest-ranked team from each group will advance to the upper bracket of the playoffs, while the second-ranked team will move on to the lower bracket.

The two teams that finish at the bottom of their respective groups will be eliminated.

The playoff stage will have a double-elimination format.

All matches in this stage will be best-of-three, except for the grand final, which will be a best-of-five showdown to determine the ultimate champion.
