Sunsparks loses MPL team to Aura PH


After producing two consecutive championships in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines, league powerhouse Sunsparks will now be parting ways with its main roster.

The organization made the announcement on its Facebook page, Wednesday.

“It’s unfortunate to announce that the current roster will no longer play under the brand of Sunsparks. We would like to thank them for giving the team their all and wish them the best for what lies ahead,” Sunsparks’ statement read.

Sunsparks — who took over No Limit’s roster in 2019 — came into the league blazing hot, putting up an 8-1 win-loss card to claim the top seed entering the playoffs. Through its iconic arrival play, Sunsparks overcame a 0-2 series disadvantage to snatch the MPL-PH Season Four title from the hands of ONIC PH.

Despite finishing second in the elimination phase, Sunsparks continued their dominance in Season Five. They dismantled ONIC PH once more in the Grand Finals, becoming the first-ever team to win two consecutive championships in the MPL-PH scene.

Sunsparks also won several championships in the Juicy Legends Grand Tournament, Mytel Invitational Championship, and Just ML Cup, to name a few. They also represented the Philippines in the first-ever M1 World Championships in 2019.

The roster that consists of Chan ‘Rafflesia’ Faura, Kielvj ‘Kielvj’ Hernandez, Jaypee ‘Jaypee’ Dela Cruz, Ashley ‘Killuash’ Cruz, Allen ‘Greed_’ Baloy, Renzio ‘Renzio’ Cadua, along with head coach Michael ‘Arcadia’ Bocado and team manager Mitch Liwanag, will now be bannering Aura PH — an esports organization based in Indonesia.

“With this new venture into the Philippines, we are excited to share this journey with you the fans, and strive to provide the necessary tools to these young, inspiring, talented pros so that we can help them reach their full potential. We have many contents, stories, fun challenges we cannot wait to share with you all in the near future,” said Aura PH in a statement posted on their Facebook page.

Aura PH will be testing its new roster in the Razer-SEA Invitational Philippine Qualifiers.
