“It’s a very opportune time for the announcement of the 14th Edition of the 2022 World Esports Championships by IESF. The titles included in the championship are CS: GO, Dota 2, Tekken 7, eFootball, PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, we have very strong chances of winning Medals across these titles (other than the ones banned in India). This year’s championship will be the biggest in the history of esports with the expected participation of around 1,000 pro teams/ athletes participating in a single event. The prize will also be the highest one ever announced by IESF. With an enormous prize pool of $500k, ESFI will host the national qualifiers for this championship and send our country’s contingent to compete at IESF’s flagship event in Bali, Indonesia.
This year we are power-packed with multiple prestigious tournaments like Asian Games 2022, Commonwealth Games, etc, I am certain that our esports contingent will not only put up a strong fight but also strive for a podium finish. This truly is the esports industry’s time as the ‘rising-Sun’ and ESFI is all geared-up to have India become the esports powerhouse, globally.”
