Indian esports organization, Esports Wala, has stepped beyond the country to acquire an international PUBG Mobile roster based out of Thailand, just a week before the regional PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) is scheduled to begin.

Esports Wala has signed the former PUBG Mobile lineup of an esports organization from the Southeast Asian region, UTG International Thailand, with an aim to compete in PMPL Thailand Spring 2023 featuring a total prize pool of $60,000 USD (INR 49,52,430).

This move also bolsters Esports Wala's international presence, as it already operates an esports team in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region.

Esports Wala operates multiple teams across various mobile titles while also being a local tournament organizer. Its latest move is targeted at the Southeast Asian scene, where a PUBG Mobile team has been acquired to enter the regional competitive circuit, PMPL Thailand Spring 2023.

The new Esports Wala PUBG Mobile roster is as follows,

  1. Fes "Freddy" Pornpet - IGL / Captain

  2. Fluk "TripleF" Suphak

  3. EARTHq

  4. Jo "MrJo" Detdanai

  5. FlowArm

Talking about the lastest signing, Vibhanshu Tiwari - Founder and CEO of Esports Wala, says “Our organization has always aimed at exploring new opportunities as well as making some unique, innovative changes in the Indian esports community, and it is with this vision that we established our first BGMI team in 2022. The unfortunate ban on the title had an adverse effect on the country’s overall Esports scenario, but we did not let it hinder our goal and consequently decided to move forward with our vision in MENA as well as the SA [South Asia] & SEA [South East Asia] regions. Our next challenge is the PMPL tournament in Thailand and I am confident that our talented team will put in stellar performances to bring the trophy home.”

This lineup will be seen competing for the first-time ever under the banner of its new team, Esports Wala, from 15th February onwards at the PMPL Thailand Spring 2023 for which it qualified through the PUBG Mobile National Championship Thailand 2022 in December 2022.

Back then it was competing for UTG International Thailand and had managed to grab the last qualifying slot by placing fourth in the tournament.

Now, it has gone on to join the top 16 teams from the PMPL Thailand Fall 2022, who were all handed direct invites for this tournament. This means that the level of competition will be on a whole different level as the best PUBG Mobile teams from Thailand will be taking on each other.

Talking about this opportunity to play for an Indian organization, Freddy - Captain of Esports Wala PUBG Mobile Team, said “I am very happy that we are playing for a renowned and reputed Indian esports organization like Esports Wala and we feel proud to be associated with them. As I have witnessed Indian teams getting a lot of support from their fans on a lot of previous occasions, we hope that we get similar backing and love from the Indian Esports community. The team is determined to give the fans a very good performance as we take center stage in one of PUBG Mobile’s biggest tournaments. Love you India and we are really looking forward to your support.”

It will be interesting to see how the team performs in the upcoming tournament and how much success Esports Wala achieves in one of the most competitive regions for PUBG Mobile.
