In an announcement released today, the Mobile Legends Professional League-Philippines confirmed that MPL-PH games scheduled for this week will be moved to next week.
"Due to the extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, the Mobile Legends Professional League - Philippines has decided to postpone this week’s matches. The safety and health of all players, coaches, talents, staff and their families are our utmost priority," the league said in a statement.
The nine-game schedule for Week 3 will be partly compressed into next week, which will now run for four days starting Thursday, April 15, up to Sunday, April 18.
