PASIG—Blacklist International found itself joining two domestic league champs to begin its campaign in the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup following the group draw on Friday.

Blacklist, the runner-up in the MPL Philippines Season 11, was drawn into Group D with Malaysian winner TODAK and Middle East champion Team Occupy.

Meanwhile, Echo, the reigning Philippine champ, begins its road to a calendar year treble with showdowns against inaugural Turkish league champion Fire Flux Impunity and Laotian club Team EVO, which went through the Mekong Qualifiers.

Group B sees an all-Southeast Asian trio consisting of Indonesia's EVOS Legends, Myanmar's Fenix Esports, and RSG Slate Singapore.

Group C, on the other hand, consists of Burn X Flash of host country Cambodia featuring Filipino import Marius Tan, ONIC Indonesia, and American side Outplay.

The MSC group stages are set from June 10-13 with the playoffs happening from June 15-18 at the Aeon Mall in Phnom Penh.

For the first time ever, the MSC has allowed non-Southeast Asian teams to qualify, paving the way for FFI, Occupy, and Outplay to join.
