The tournament will be held in conjunction with a music concert which will see a huge line-up of famous artists take the stage throughout the two-day tournament at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Both the semi-finals and finals will take off on the same stage.

To raise up the hype level, the KL Hunters will lead as Malaysia’s representative in the LoL ASEAN tournament. KL Hunters will be going head-to-head against nine other ASEAN teams. These 10 teams will be honing their best strategic game in order to win the coveted title of the first LoL ASEAN Champion in Southeast Asia.
