Malaysia’s first ever Para Malaysia Esports League 2021 (Para MEL21) is calling for registrations through the national esports platform, esukan.gg with a main prize pool of RM10,000. Aimed to encourage aspiring esports athletes to register on esukan.gg to start on their esports journey, Para MEL21 is in line with the Malaysian government’s objective to develop the esports scene while providing a safe and inclusive ecosystem for the local gaming community where anyone can become professional gamers, regardless of their identities.
Para MEL21 is a month-long tournament organised by Techninier and Esports Integrated (ESI), an initiative to catalyse a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive esports ecosystem under the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) in collaboration with the Malaysian Youth Council (MBM) and is supported by Malaysia Disability Youth Council (MBOKU). Endorsed by KBS, the tournament is a part of the National Esports Blueprint to promote inclusivity within the local esports ecosystem through programmatic approach.
While esports has been growing for the past 20 years, it is yet to fully embrace full inclusivity within its many tournaments and programs. PWD especially, do not have a nationwide platform to compete and showcase their skills to a larger market compared to able-bodied people. Together with the assistance of fellow citizens, industry players and related agencies, KBS aspires to bring PWD-only tournaments into the mainstream, in similar veins to the Paralympic Games by International Paralympics Committee (IPC).
Para MEL21 will run from now till 24 October. Throughout the month, all players registered on esukan.gg can also participate in the Hebat Challenge featuring Techninier’s self-developed game Super Jones for a RM1,000 prize. The main Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBGM) para-esports tournament will be held on 18 to 24 October where players will battle it out in respective solo and squad categories for the total prize pool of RM10,000. Additionally, the PUBG champions of Malaysia Esports League 2021 (MEL21) have been invited to participate in a PUBGM Show Match on 9 October in conjunction with the Malaysia Esports Festival (MEF), which is open to all registered players.
