The SIBOL MLBB lineup is composed of veteran players from Blacklist International, namely Johnmar "PHI VILLALUNA" Villaluna as team captain, together with Danerie "PHI DEL ROSARIO" Del Rosario, Salic "Hadji" Imam, and Dexter "PHI ALABA" Alaba. Amateur players Kyle "PHI SOTO" Soto, Howard "PHI GONZALES" Gonzales, and Russel "PHI USI" Usi, who have never competed in any Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional Leagues or tournaments, were part of the winning roster.

To quote SIBOL eSports, "After a dominant SEA Games 2022 run, SIBOL MLBB 2022 climbs the mountains and stakes their claim on the Mobile Legends supremacy for the Philippines in the whole of southeast Asia!"

According to Esports Charts, the 31st SEA Games MLBB tournament reached a new peak-concurrent viewership of 2.2 million with an average of 610,000 viewers.

In 2019, the Philippines and Indonesia were also the finalists during the 30th SEA Games Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, with the Philippines hailed as the champions with a 3:2 match score.

From the TechPinas community, congratulations to SIBOL MLBB 2022 for winning gold and making all Pinoys proud! Cheers!
