South Asian esports company NODWIN Gaming today announced the Northeast Esports Summit with a prize pool of 3.5 Lacs INR for Clash of Clans and Free Fire. The registrations for the tournament will open on 14th October and the matches for the first qualifiers are set to take place on 28th October.
"Northeast India has been a remarkable region in the Indian esports circuit that has shown consistent growth over time. Mrinmoy, existence, Deathmaker and many more like them have made it to top ranks in a number of titles. What I personally love about the 8 states put together is the diversity in the community, their hunger to excel, their undying passion for the game and their down-to-earth demeanour. With Northeast Esports Summit, we strive to bring forth the Northeast as a key region driving esports in the country", said Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming. The company considers the Northeast as a vital region for Indian esports and that it holds massive potential in terms of new gaming talents.
Northeast Esports Summit Format
The tournament will see gamers competing across two of the most popular esports titles - Supercell’s strategy game Clash of Clans and Garena’s battle royale Free Fire. The tournament is divided into two stages, the online qualifiers and the grand finals. Both the games will have 4 online qualifiers each. The top teams from each qualifier will advance to the Grand finals which will be held on 5th & 6th December. The tournament is restricted to the residents of the North-Eastern states.
The Northeast Esports Summit is sponsored by Airtel India Esports Tour, the umbrella banner of India’s popular esports tournaments. All the matches of the tournament will be broadcast live on Airtel’s digital content platform - Airtel Xstream, 8bit_Thug's YouTube channel and NODWIN Gaming’s Facebook and YouTube handle.
