“I am glad to continue my partnership with India Today Gaming for ESPL Season 2. Esports has seen an explosive growth across the country. ESPL is a great platform for esports athletes to showcase their talent on the national stage. I am happy to be part of this undertaking to grow the esports industry while encouraging the esports players and the gaming community,” said Tiger.

For this season, the tournament has signed Tecno Mobile, a Chinese-owned smartphone manufacturer, as a presenting sponsor and the streaming platform Loco as a digital broadcast partner.

According to an EY report, the esports industry is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46 per cent, reaching $11 billion by 2025.

The second season of the ESPL commenced on June 15, with this year’s championships involving gamers from all across the nation in intense firefights of the most renowned battle royale game, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).
