From September 29 to 30, the Esports Federation of India (ESFI) hosted the India qualifiers for the World Esports League (WSL) 2021.

Technoblood Inc. hosts the World Esports League, which is organised by the WSL Organising Committee in collaboration with the International Esports Federation (IESF). The India Qualifiers will be organised virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with top athletes from across the country competing and showcasing their skills and strategies. The event will feature the famous fighting game TEKKEN7 as well as the multiplayer online battle arena and third-person hero shooter video game Brawl Stars (3V3).

The fighting game Tekken7 will be played in a double-elimination format, while Brawl Stars will be played in a single-elimination format.

A tight-knit fight gaming community in India has extreme potential, one that we keep witnessing in many esports tournaments in the country. Tekken7 has a legacy of being the best fighting game and we are confident that esports athletes coming over from across the country will be putting up a spectacle of their own. Brawl Stars is a very popular game among the children between 16-21 years of age and we will witness some budding superstars coming out as national champions and bringing the laurels for our country at the Global Finals. This is a very interesting time for esports in India and we are already looking forward to our national qualifiers for WSL ’21.

said Mr. Prabhat Kumar, Director of Esports Federation of India.

The winners of the India qualifiers are then chosen to represent India at the WSL 2021 Global Finals, which will be held in Korea from December 16 to 19. Athletes travelling to Korea will have their air travel and lodging expenses covered.

As one of the country's top Esports and sports-specific PR firms, ESFI will continue its collaboration with Artsmith-Concepts & Visions as a communication partner. The qualifiers will be broadcast live on ESFI's official YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook channels.
