Cloud 9 And Team Liquid To Enter Indian Esports Industry?


The esports scene in India is bigger than ever, and it is attracting several global organizations to the country. With an exponential growth potential, many global esports organisations have entered the Indian esports ecosystem and built their rosters over the past few years.

As per news reports squads like Team Liquid and Cloud 9 might enter the Indian esports arena by the end of this year.

The launch of PUBG mobile considerably revolutionised the mobile esports ecosystem across the world. The esports industry expanded and so did  tournaments with prize pools touching millions of dollars. 

Just like the rest of the world, PUBG mobile gained massive popularity in India too. Consequently, many global organizations started investing in the Indian esports arena.

UK-based esports organisation, Fnatic, was one of the first brands to enter India. Fnatic signed the former roster of team XSpark, led by Indian gamer Tanmay Singh aka ‘Sc0ut,’ in 2019. It then went on to acquire Indian teams like Owais, Ronak and InYoDream. These teams won many international PUBG mobile titles.

Another international leading esports organisation Team SoloMid (TSM) signed Entity Gaming following their impressive performance at the PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO). TSM-Entity was considered as one of the world’s best PUBG mobile teams.

Furthermore, Galaxyracers entered India by signing the ex-Celtz gaming line-up. Celtz gaming won the PUBG Mobile Pro League SA in 2020.

Just when these international investments in India were gaining an impetus, the government of India banned PUBG in the country owing to national security concerns. The ban was followed by Fnatic withdrawing its operations in the country and dissolving its roster. 

However, since PUBG mobile has returned to India in the form of Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), several international organisations are once again eyeing the Indian esports market. Team Liquid, Cloud 9 and Fnatic are some of them, who are rumored to enter India by the end of 2021.

The launch of BGMI has opened new doors for the esports scene in India. It would be interesting to see what these international teams bring in and how the Indian esports scenario benefits from them.
