Yoodo Announces Partnerships with Moonton and RSG, Refreshed PUBGM Team
In a press conference yesterday, Yoodo revealed a slew of exciting announcements that outlined their plans and direction for the year. This includes a partnership Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) publisher and developer Moonton, partnerships with RSG MY to form two new esports teams, as well as a refreshed roster for Yoodo Gank, the brand's highly successful PUBG Mobile team.
Official Digital Telco for MLBB
Yoodo has announced that they are now the Official Digital Telco for MLBB, and will be "bringing to life an array of MLBB-focused tournaments" in partnership with Moonton, starting with the upcoming MLBB Pro League (MPL) Season 7.

Next up will be a special invitational tournament before proceeding to MPL Season 8, and subsequently leading up to the highly-anticipated MLBB M3 World Championships in late 2021.
