SOURCES: RSG looks to join MPL PH 8

Another foreign organization is looking to set foot in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines.

This, as multiple sources have confirmed that Singapore-based esports organization Resurgence is vying for a spot in the upcoming MPL Philippines Season Eight which is reported to adopt a franchise-based system.

League sources also confirmed that the organization is bringing in a foreign coach to man the squad which will feature a mix of MPL Philippines veterans and rookies.

Resurgence — who rebranded to RSG last year — has two Mobile Legends teams in MPL Singapore and MPL Malaysia.

RSG Malaysia won the MPL Malaysia Season Seven championship after a come-from-behind 4-2 victory over local powerhouse Todak — who was the previous winner of the defunct MPL MY/SG league.

Meanwhile, RSG Singapore — the organization’s first MPL squad — finished second in the inaugural MPL Singapore season after being swept by eventual champions EVOS SG.

Interestingly, the EVOS franchise also made its jump on Philippine soil after partnering with Filipino organization Nexplay Esports for the upcoming Season Eight.

Teams that are reported to fill the eight slots for MPL Philippines Season Eight are RSG, Nexplay EVOS, Bren Esports, ONIC PH, Aura PH, Omega Esports, Work Auster Force-TNC, and reigning champion Blacklist International.

Unfortunately, fan-favorites Execration will no longer be part of the league as the organization already released its Mobile Legends squad after six seasons in the league.

RSG also has PUBG: Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile teams based in Malaysia.
