Raising funds for COVID-19 with esports.
The #YourHomeYourArena (YHYA) Charity Cup officially began last week in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang category, as part of the Asian Electronic Sports Federation’s (AESF) YHYA campaign (to raise funds for combating COVID-19).
The quarter-finals saw eight teams from Southeast Asian countries competing in a single-elimination knock-out stage of the invitational. Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brunei participated in the #YHYA Charity Cup Quarter-Finals.
After four matches, only Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia emerged victorious from their respective matches and are able to progress to the Semi-Finals, which will be played next week.
The first match between Thailand and Singapore starts at 2pm GMT+8 on 11 June 2020, followed by the second match between Malaysia and Indonesia at 4pm GMT+8 on the same day. The Finals between the winners of those two matches will be played later at 7.30pm GMT+8 on the same day as well.
Instead of the Quarter-Finals’ single-elimination knock-out stage format, the Semi-Finals and Finals of the #YourHomeYourArena (YHYA) Mobile Legends Charity Cup will be played in Best-Of-3 format.
