Amid the COVID-19 crisis, countless gaming tournaments abroad have been postponed. But it looks like the largest mobile esports league in Southeast Asia, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League (MPL), will stand its ground as it returns to the Philippines for Season 5.

MPL PH will be divided into 3 stages: the Qualifier Stage, the Regular Season, and the Playoff Round. A two-day online qualifier was already held earlier this month for all those aspiring to advance to the main qualifiers, wherein two regular-season slots were up for grab.

Meanwhile, the first week of the regular season phase will run on two days, Feb. 29 to March 1, while the succeeding weeks will be from Friday to Sunday until April 5. It will also be streamed live via Facebook and YouTube starting on February 29 at 6:00 p.m

When: Feb. 29 to April 5, 2020 ( Week 1: February 29-March 1, Week 2: March 6-8, Week 3: March 13-15, Week 4: March 20-22, Week 5: March 27-29, Week 6: April 3-5 )
