NODWIN Gaming Announces Season 5 of ESL India Premiership 2020

Business Wire India
India’s leading esports company NODWIN Gaming has today announced the launch of the 5th edition of its flagship tournament - ESL India Premiership 2020. Registrations for the seeding cup of the Summer Season are open.



Having successfully completed 4 editions of ESL India Premiership, NODWIN Gaming has added considerable zing to this property with changes like the addition of playoffs in between the sub-leagues, seeding cups for the new games and exclusion of Challengers Cup.



PUBG MOBILE, FIFA20 and Clash of Clans come in as new additions to the line-up of games, while, Popular FPS CS:GO has been retained. NODWIN’s social interaction polls revealed that the most requested games were PUBG MOBILE and Clash of Clans. The addition of FIFA20 widens the audience base by incorporating the first console game to the tournament. Clash of Clans, the fast-paced and easy-going strategy game is expected to attract larger participation and viewership. The online phase of the tournament will have two sub leagues - Starter Cup and Masters League. The broadcast of Masters League will begin on 1 June 2020.



“The Premiership comes in as an ideal getaway for gamers in lockdown. New games and a new format are in place to kickstart the season. PUBGM and Clash of Clans are certainly two of the biggest communities out there, and with FIFA20 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,” said, Sidharth Kedia, Group CEO, NODWIN Gaming.



NODWIN Gaming in its efforts to build a complete esports ecosystem for the country has associated with multiple brands in the past. Entering the 5th edition, the Premiership has several brand partners joining the incredible journey. Continuing the association for the second consecutive year is the luxury automobile manufacturers Mercedes-Benz. OTT platform Disney+Hotstar resumes as the official broadcast partners. Energy drink Red Bull makes a comeback to the Premiership after a short break.



“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. 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,” said, Gautam Virk, Chief Operating Officer, NODWIN Gaming.



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.



KEY REGISTRATION DATES:



PUBG: May 21-27

FIFA20: May 20 - 24

CsGo: May 21- June 13

Clash of Clans: May 21-24
