The Skyesports Championship 3.0 has arrived, with a large prize pool of Rs. 55,00,000 spread among six of South Asia's most popular games. From mobile to PC games, it will feature all the popular South Asia's favourite games. The competition will be held from August to October 2021 without any phases or seasonal breaks.

After immensely successful first and second editions, Skyesports has expanded the largest third-party tournament IP in the history of Indian esports, the Skyesports Championship, to cover the entirety of South Asia in 2021. Players from Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan can now compete in the open-for-all qualifiers for a shot at glory and the prize pool.

The six games includes Battlegrounds Mobile India, Valorant, Clash of Clans, Brawl Stars and two more exciting games which will be revealed later.

With Rs. 25,00,000 on the line, the majority of the prize pool will be going to one of India’s favourite games, BGMI. South Asia’s beloved FPS title, Valorant will get Rs. 22,00,000. Clash of Clans, Brawl Stars and the two unannounced titles will feature prize pools of Rs. 2,00,000 each.

For Battlegrounds Mobile India, whose semifinals will begin on Aug. 30, a staggering 15,290 teams registered for a shot at glory. Only one can reach the top, however.

The entire championship will be played online to ensure the safety of the staff and players amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Registrations are currently live on the official Skyesports website.
