After winning MPL KH Season 1, SeeYouSoon officially became the sole representative of Cambodia in the upcoming ONE Esports’ MPL Invitational 2021 (MPLI 2021).

Facing well-established MPL regions such as the Philippines and Indonesia is no easy task, considering MPL KH is still in its first season.

However, team SeeYouSoon are unfazed. In fact, they believe the notion of being an underdog in one of the biggest Mobile Legends: Bang Bang tournaments in the world has its advantages.
