The details of one of the most anticipated Indian esports tournaments - the ESL India Premiership 2017 have just been leaked! The latest edition of the premier tournament is set to kickoff from April.
In what seems to be an unintentional leak via their website, we believe that the ESL India Premiership will be following Valve’s footsteps by having three seasons spread throughout the course of the year (Summer, Fall and Winter). The first season (summer) is set to kickoff as early as April 2017. With this we can assume that the Fall edition will be from August to September and the Winter edition will be from November to December. Atleast four games will be a part of this tournament; CS:GO, Dota 2, Clash Royale and Just Dance.
The tournament is also set to feature a net prizepool that's significantly higher than its previous record of INR 42 Lakh prizepool, with each season featuring a substantial amount. Dota 2 and CS:GO are expected to grab the lion’s share of the prizepool.
Based on the available information, we can also speculate that Cosplay Competitions will also be part and parcel of the ESL India Premiership 2017.

To Summarize

  • 3 Seasons (Summer, Fall and Winter)
  • Atleast 4 Games (CS:GO, Dota 2, Clash Royale and Just Dance)
  • Cosplay Competition
  • Summer Season Kicks off from April 2017
  • Prizepool of over INR 42 Lakhs.
