Marcos Gaming joins Skyesports Masters

June 21, 2023

Homegrown esports brand Marcos Gaming has been confirmed as a franchise in India’s biggest gaming tournament, the Skyesports Masters. The organisation will soon be unveiling its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) team, who will fight for a share of the ?2,00,00,000 prize pool. 

Marcos Gaming is set to sign a five-man CS:GO roster to compete in the Skyesports Masters. Additionally, the organisation will be adding two players from the Skyesports Masters cafe qualifiers, which are happening across two weekends — June 17 and 18, and June 24 and 25 — and are a grassroots effort aiming to recognise and uplift the best talent from 20 different cities across the country. 

The Skyesports Masters is set to kick off with the League Stage on July 8. Eight franchised teams will lock horns across several weeks, with the top four teams advancing to the Playoffs, which are scheduled for August 26 and 27 as an on-ground LAN event. 

Sudhir Kumar, Founder, Marcos Gaming, commented:

I am thrilled to be entering India’s first franchised esports league. We believe in the vision of Shiva [Nandy] and Skyesports which was one of our primary motivations to enter the league. The franchise model is important in esports as it brings structure to the industry with a fixed set of deliverables, allowing us to close brand deals easier. There is still work to be done for reviving Counter-Strike in India, and we are here for the long run with the Skyesports Masters and are looking forward to growing this promising title.

Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO, Skyesports, added:

We are delighted to welcome Marcos Gaming as one of the franchised teams in the Skyesports Masters. The tournament will serve as a gateway for the revival of Counter-Strike in India and we need organisations who are committed to being the catalyst for this. Akhil’s and Marcos’ long-term commitment is aligned with our goals for the league and the game.
