This marks the second time that the popular MOBA game is appearing at the regional sporting event. It was previously included in 2019, back when the Philippines hosted the SEA Games and beat Indonesia to win the first medal for MLBB. It was also the first time that esports in general was added to the games. Back then, the Philippines managed to win a total of five medals—three golds, a silver and a bronze—in the esports tournament.
