AMD Skyesports Pro League featuring ‘League of Legends’, ‘Dota 2’, and ‘BGMI’ revealed

Skyesports, one of the leading esports tournament organizer in South Asia, has announced an all-new edition of the Skyesports Pro League featuring League of Legends, Dota 2, and BGMI with a $20,000 prize pool. The tournament is presented by the global semiconductor company, AMD and powered by the game streaming platform, Rooter.

After some intense Free Fire action earlier this year, the Skyesports Pro League is back with three games and a prize pool of $20,000. Two of the biggest MOBA titles in the world have been included in the Pro League this time as players can compete in League of Legends and Dota 2 for a share of the prize money and the bragging rights. The third game is the fan-favourite mobile battle royale title, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Fans can tune into the competition on Rooter. 

In the Skyesports Pro League for Dota 2 and League of Legends, players from across South Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Maldives, and Pakistan) can participate. Registrations for the two games are currently live. For both games, a single-elimination format will be followed to decide the champions. Stay tuned to Skyesports’ Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts for more information. 

“We are excited to finally host a tournament for League of Legends and Dota 2, and can finally add the two games to the growing list of games we organize tournaments for. We aim to provide something for every gamer through our IPs and the inclusion of the two MOBA titles is an indication of that. League of Legends has also been selected as a medal event at the Asian Games 2022. The Pro League will provide a platform for players to sharpen up their skills in a highly competitive setting ahead of the sporting competition later this year,” said Skyesports CEO Shiva Nandy.

For Battlegrounds Mobile India, the top 24 teams from the Skyesports Grand Slam have been invited to the Pro League. The Grand Slam featured an open for all format and concluded on 16 February with Team XO taking first place.
