Revenant Esports became the first team to secure a slot in the Skyesports CSGO Masters. The Skyesports Masters is India's first-ever franchised league for CS:GO and features eight teams.

Revenant Esports is an India-based esports organization with lineups in multiple titles such as Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), VALORANT, Pokemon UNITE, and Call of Duty Mobile. This signing will mark its entry into the world of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. In line with the roster rules of the Skyesports Masters, Revenant Esports will be forming a seven-man roster, including five players in their main lineup, along with two substitutes. Each team in the tournament is also allowed to field up to two international players. Additionally, Revenant Esports will be adding two players from the cafe qualifiers to complete their lineup.

Through a press release, Rohit Jagasia, founder and CEO of Revenant Esports, said, “We at Revenant have always had a holistic approach in esports and believe diversification is key. Skyesports has given us just that with the franchised Skyesports Masters. With CSGO, we will soon have eight rosters across multiple esports titles in India. Revenant Esports believes in recognizing and nurturing esports talent to make them stars, and the Skyesports Masters, with the cafe qualifiers, give us an opportunity to do just that. It was a no-brainer for us to enter this promising league as a franchised team.”

Commenting on the signing of Revenant Esports, Shiva Nandy, Founder, and CEO, of Skyesports, said, “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Revenant Esports into the Skyesports Masters.
