Nodwin Gaming is back with its 5th flagship tournament – ESL India Premiership 2020. The registrations for the seeding cup of the Summer Season began on Thursday, 21 May.
While Dota 2, Clash Royale, and Brawl Stars have been removed from this season, ESL India Premiership 2020 brings the popular PUBG Mobile, FIFA 20, and Clash of Clans to replace them.
The online phase of the tournament will have two sub leagues – Starter Cups and Master’s League. The broadcast of the Masters League will begin on 1 June.
“The Premiership comes in as an ideal getaway for gamers in lockdown,” said, Sidharth Kedia, Group CEO, NODWIN Gaming. “New games and a new format are in place to kick start the season. PUBGM and CoC are certainly two of the biggest communities out there and with FIFA 20 we have made our first step towards making console games an integral part of the Premiership. The lockdown has pulled the shutter on all forms of sports competitions for the rest of the year, leaving esports as the only spectator sport being broadcasted live on a major OTT platform like Hotstar. I believe that the current scenario is a perfect springboard to mass consumption of esports entertainment”
This year’s premiership is partnering with Mercedes-Benz, Disney+Hotstar, and Red Bull.
“The presence of active communities of the new games and the need to bring diversity into the league prompted us to renew the line-up of our competitive titles,” said, Gautam Virk, Chief Operating Officer, NODWIN Gaming. “What’s exciting about having new games on-board is that we get to work with a new bunch of talented players every time. While on the technical side of things, we are now well-versed in remote tournament execution to produce and broadcast seamless esports entertainment for our viewers. We are expecting a phenomenal response for the Summer Season.”
The registration is free of cost and requires an ESL play account to be created by the user for the titles CS:GO, FIFA20 and Clash of Clans. While PUBG Mobile participants can register through the SoStronk platform. Gamers above 16 can register for PUBG Mobile and CS:GO while the age limit for registration of Clash of Clans and FIFA20 is 13 years and above.
