Shiva Nandy, CEO and Founder, Skyesports, said:

Having a well-developed ecosystem for collegiate Esports is important to nurture talent and grow Esports from the grassroots level. The MOGO National Championship is doing just that with its pan-India format targeting all major colleges and the LAN Finale at the LPU. All the best to the 16 college teams competing in the inaugural Finale and I look forward to working together with MOGO to bring more events at the collegiate level.”

MOGO is thrilled to be part of this exciting collaboration with Skyesports for the MOGO National Championship. Our mission has always been to foster the growth of Esports at the collegiate level, and this partnership exemplifies our commitment to making competitive gaming a major part of collegiate events. We’re excited to witness the talents of these 16 college teams on display and look forward to many more such collaborations that will continue to elevate Esports in India.
