National esports team Sibol announced on Tuesday that it has invited four professional teams to participate in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) national team qualifiers for the upcoming Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Sibol, on its social media page, released the list of names invited for the second phase of the tryouts, with players coming from Blacklist International, Onic Philippines, Smart Omega, and Nexplay EVOS.
The said teams were the top four teams of the previous season of the MLBB Professional League - Philippines.
Blacklist International and Onic Philippines were also finalists in the M3 World Championship, with the former taking home the crown.
The said teams will join four other teams who will be chosen from the Phase 1 qualifiers which will be held this weekend.
The registration for the national esports tryouts started last December 29.
The Philippines won the gold medal for MLBB in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games held in the country.
The Hanoi SEAG will be held on May 12 to 25.
