MDL returns to China at MDL Macau 2019 between February 20-24. Eight of the world-class teams have gathered to compete at MDL Macau 2019, and will fight for their share of the USD 300,000 prize pool.

The MDL Macau 2019 teams are: Virtus.pro, Team Liquid, ViCi Gaming, EHOME, RNG, Evil Geniuses, Invictus Gaming and Newbee.

The event kicks off today, February 20th at 04:00 CET with EHOME taking on ViCi Gaming and iG going head to head with Team Liquid. Unlike the first edition of this event, MDL Macau 2019 will not be part of Valve’s Dota Pro Circuit.

Macau has been dubbed “The Las Vegas of Asia”, but in fact, in 2006 it surpassed even Las Vegas in gambling revenue to become the gambling capital of the world. It’s one of the richest regions of the world and was ranked the “fastest growing metropolitan area in the world” in 2015.

The city has now turned its sights towards esports in order to attract the younger generations. Seven months ago, in August 2018, Macau launched its first ever esports venue named “Macau EStadium” inside Melco Resorts’ Studio City.
