Malaysia Esports Championship 2021/2022 returns for the second season

2021 will be another historic year in esports for Malaysia, as the annual Malaysia Esports Championship (MEC) is set to return for its second edition in December 2021. Esports Integrated (ESI), under the purview of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS), has been at the forefront of the Malaysian esports community and is leading the charge in driving the nation’s gaming culture forward.

Following the successful launch of the first MEC 2020/2021 which had over 11,000 registrants, the tournament is one of the first milestones under KBS’s Strategic Plan for Esports Development 2020 – 2025 that was aimed to promote and cultivate a sustainable esports community in Malaysia while creating opportunities for the youth to explore esports as a viable career.

“Seeing how well MEC 20/21 and MEL21 have benefited the esports ecosystem, KBS believes in continuing the efforts to provide platforms for Malaysian esports players to flourish. From professionals to amateurs, inclusivity is crucial to ensure a sustainable local talents development plan.” said YB Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu.
