The M League was launched in July 2018, and will be in its sixth season next season. In the 2022-23 season, Shibuya ABEMAS has won the championship for the first time, and the winning team changes every year for five years. Under the slogan, “Get more out of this frenzy”, the development of various media is also increasing. With the addition of the BSJapanext team (tentative name), a new wind is likely to blow. In addition, the team will nominate a mixed team of four men and women at the draft meeting held before the start of the 2023-24 season, but prior to this, players will be publicly recruited on a dedicated site, and one of the draft nominated players will be selected. We are planning to hold a selection meeting to decide.

Takamitsu Sato, President and CEO of Japanet Broadcasting Co., Ltd., which operates BSJapanext, said through the M League organization, “The M League is showing excitement with heated battles and the spread of various online games, and the fun and health as a sport. We decided to enter the M League this time because we want to spread the spread of mahjong to more people.”
