Online-Driven ESPL and Esports Titan HomeBois Finally Wraps Up In Search For The Next Professional MLBB Stars Among The Malaysian Grassroot Community

Esports Players League (ESPL), the global esports tournament and platform provider with main focus on amateur or grassroot esports community and HomeBois, a Malaysian esports business and production organisation recently announced On Air Esports as the winner of The Academy Championship MLBB 2021. Taking home the grand prize of RM800 in terms of monthly allowance, Sekyss (MVP) and teammates beat Team SKT T1 during the Grand Final to claim the Champion title and will go through a series of intensive coaching as well as once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be trained in a gaming bootcamp under HomeBois’ guidance for upcoming major tournaments locally and globally.

The Academy Championship MLBB 2021 featured close to 512 registered teams from all over Malaysia battling it out in an intense qualifying round of matches, which took place on 13 to 16 December 2021. The top eight teams advanced to the League and Playoffs Stages from 20 December 2021 till 11 January 2022 with the Grand Finals happening on the next day where Team On Air Esports battled dauntlessly to emerge as the deserved champion beating team SKT T1 with a clean 3-0 sweep.

Muhd Haqqullah aka Sekyss, the MVP of this tournament mentions that, “I’m totally grateful for this wonderful achievement. I believe every single opponent worked really hard to win this tournament. As for The Academy, I believe this is a platform for me and my team to go further in this career. Thank you to On Air Pipol for their huge support, without them, me and my team can’t make it. This achievement is proof that Esports is not just about the game, but it defines who you are as a person.

The Academy is part of our initiative to develop new talents in the industry and we are extremely happy with the results that it brings till this day,” says Tuan Azrin Izzuddin “Avaaa” Tuan Abu Bakar, Project Director of HomeBois.

It is an honour for us to be present in the rise of these new champions and at the same time are excited for future collaborations to bring more immersive experience among the grassroots esports community”.

This championship is a part of HomeBois’ talent acquisition and development programme in search for hidden talents among the esports community to join in The Academy. These talents will be trained in every aspect of becoming professional esports players with massive chances to represent HomeBois in big tournaments. This will also open up better career opportunities in the esports industry and educate the talents on digital broadcasting skills.
