Registrations for the cafe qualifiers are currently underway on the official Skyesports Masters website.

Ashwin Haryani, Country Head (India), Ampverse, said:

Happy to be part of the Skyesports Masters and excited to see the franchise format enter into the Indian esports industry in such a grand way. Skyesports has delivered some amazing IPs in the past and they will no doubt do a great job with this league as well. I am very hopeful that such events shall steer the esports ecosystem into a more profitable, mature, and stable industry.

Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO, Skyesports, added:

We are thrilled to have 7Sea Esports join us for the Skyesports Masters. The organisation has been making strides across esports, lifestyle, and entertainment and having holistic brands like these is a testament to the power of the Skyesports Masters to captivate a young audience and subsequently grow leaps and folds. I am happy to see 7Sea Esports sign a young team with new talent to nurture in the long term and wish them the best of luck.
