During the in-person event, the organizers have stated that strict health and safety protocols will be implemented, with participants getting swab tests and with the number of personnel entering in the venue being limited. There will also be a roving safety officer to ensure everyone follows the rules. On top of these, safety and sanitation kits will be shared with all attendees and potential cases will be isolated.
The event venue will be limited to players, casters, and staff for safety purposes. This means the upcoming MPL-PH season will have no audience during the games. Though fans can stream the matches online through MPL-PH’s official social media platforms – Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube.
