The Latin American Master League (LAML) will no longer be authorized to run tournaments using Supercell games.
Supercell has cut ties with the Latin American Master League after the organization failed to pay players their tournament earnings from the 2021 edition of the Brawl Stars Master League.
Supercell says they will work to make sure those players are paid and has launched legal action against the organization, which will no longer be able to run events using Supercell games.

Supercell Will Pay Brawl Star Masters Tournament Winnings
The Brawl Stars Master League had a $100,000 USD prize pool and featured teams from across Latin America. The tournament was unique in that all players had the backing of real soccer teams from the region, with players representing the likes of Boca Juniors, River Plate, and Chivas, after earning the right through qualifiers.
The winners were America de Cali Esports, who had players from Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico, and who should have seen themselves walk away with $20,000 and have reportedly not been paid almost seven months after the tournament ended on December 29, 2021.
As part of the event, skins based on the team's soccer jerseys were also made available, which anyone could buy from the Brawl Stars in-game shop.
The Master League's website hasn't been updated since December of last year, their Twitter since January 7, and their Facebook group since February 10, with the company seemingly going to ground as questions began being asked about payments.
Supercell says they have been in touch with the organization, but they have "failed to honor its contractual commitments," with legal action to follow.
Thankfully, Supercell has stepped in and promised to honor their prize winnings with surely a more reliable Latin America partner set to be brought in for the region's Brawl Star fans.
