The M5 Wild Card will be hosted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A Wild Card is coming to the M5 World Championships, and it will be hosted in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia later this year.

Although the Mobile Legends Professional Leagues across the world have barely begun, we are already looking ahead to the culmination of the season with the M5 World Championships. Earlier this year we learned that M5 would be further expanding, opening its doors to a Wild Card qualifier, which will give eight teams a chance at reaching the prestigious event.

Confirmed today, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia will play host to the M5 Wild Card event, which will take place in November 2023. Fikri Rizal Mahruddin, the Marketing and Business Development lead for MPL Malaysia had the following to say on the region being chosen for this amazing tournament,

Malaysia has played host to several Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Esports international tournaments, including MSC 2022 and M1, and is home to a huge pool of talents that possess the capacity and ability to operate a world-class championship. We're confident of pulling off a great esports experience for our local fans once again, and welcoming international players from abroad to compete in the M5 Wild Card."

The event serves as a precursor to the M5 World Championships which will take place in the Philippines in December 2023. Eight teams from multiple regions, including South America, Malaysia, CIS, Southern Asia, Southeast Asia, Mongolia, and two unannounced regions will be fighting through a gruelling challenge in the Wild Card as they attempt to claim a spot at the main event.

We will have more information on the M5 Wild Card and the M5 World Championships throughout the year as teams battle through their regional MPL events. The exact dates for the Wild Card will be confirmed at a later time as we countdown towards the M5 World Championships.
