Skyesports Masters, a franchised CS:GO league operated by Indian esports and gaming company Skyesports, has announced a partnership with peripherals brand Zebronics.
As Skyesports Masters’ peripherals partner, Zebronics will provide competitors with its range of monitors, keyboards and headphones in addition to promoting the products to viewers and spectators.
The Skyesports Masters sees eight teams competing for a share of 2 Crore INR (~£195,800) in prize money. The eight teams will be decided through qualifiers taking place in gaming cafés located in 20 cities across India. Teams that qualify for the event will head to Mumbai to compete in front of a live audience. Information on the event locations is yet to be revealed.
The creation of Skyesports Masters aims to create a range of revenue opportunities for the eight teams that qualify through sponsorships and media rights deals. By creating the revenue streams, the competition will create a sustainable ecosystem for CS:GO in India and the surrounding region.
Zebronics becomes the third partner of the Skyesports Masters. It joins AMD and Microsoft on its ever-expanding roster.
Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO of Skyesports, spoke on the deal: “We are thrilled to welcome a homegrown brand into the Skyesports Masters. As we look to grow the league sustainably over the years to come, indigenous brands like Zebronics coming on board are a testament to the longevity of the Skyesports Masters.
“With the backing of Zebronics, along with our existing partnerships with AMD and Windows 11, we are confident that the Skyesports Masters will live up to its expectations of setting a new benchmark for Indian esports.”
