Skyesports has been one of the top original IP organisers for BGMI ever since it was released in June 2021. The Skyesports Championship 4.0 – BGMI, one of the first-ever major tournaments for the game that happened in September 2021, achieved a record-breaking peak viewership of 2,21,000. Additionally, the Skyesports Grand Slam in early 2022 also recorded terrific viewership numbers, with a peak of more than 1,50,000 viewers. 

The top two teams of the SCS will receive an invite to the Skyesports Championship 5.0 Finale, which will be a LAN event scheduled to be held later this year.

Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO, Skyesports, commented:

With BGMI becoming available again, we couldn’t be more excited to showcase the talent and passion of the Indian esports community through one of our most iconic IPs, the Skyesports Champions Series. The tournament will serve as a platform for India’s top squads to battle it out in a top-tier competitive environment for the humongous ?25,00,000 prize pool. The return of BGMI to our tournament lineup reaffirms our commitment to providing continuous and exciting events across a plethora of games to our diverse audience.
