Renowned international esports organisation Team Secret has teased their expansion into Indonesia as part of a continuing effort to grow their Southeast Asia presence.

This latest tease follows Secret’s official announcement of the formation of a new team based in the Philippines in late October.

Secret is already operating three teams in Southeast Asia; a League of Legends (LoL) team in Vietnam as well as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile squads in Malaysia and Thailand.

However, their main base of operations is in Europe, where they operate teams in Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rainbow Six: Siege, and TrackMania.

The organisation has not yet revealed what esport titles their new teams in Indonesia and the Philippines will be competing in.

Dota 2 is the most popular esports title in Indonesia, though mobile games, such as Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), have been becoming more prevalent in the country as well.

Dota Pro Circuit rules essentially forbid organisations from having two teams at once, ruling out Dota as the title of choice for Secret’s new Indonesian team.

It is therefore more likely that this new squad will compete in MLBB, as Indonesia already has an established league in the game with the MLBB Pro League’s Indonesia division.

Alternative possible titles for Secret’s Indonesian team include other popular mobile games in the country, such as PUBG Mobile, Arena of Valor, and LoL’s official mobile port, League of Legends: Wild Rift.

Secret’s expansion into Indonesia should give the country’s esports scene a considerable boost, especially after it officially recognised esports as an official sport back in August.
