First introduced in early 2022, the Snapdragon Pro Series is a multi-tiered mobile esports ecosystem that features a range of prominent titles. Games featured in the series are categorised into at least one of three tiers: Open, Challenge and Masters.

Gamescom will see MENA’s best Brawl Stars teams compete in the Season 3 Mobile Challenge finals on August 26-27 in Cologne, Germany. Not only will the Challenge finals offer qualification points to the 2023 Brawl Stars Championship, but the event will feature a $60,000 (~£47,000) prize pool.

PAX West, which is taking place September 1st – 4th, will host the North American Mobile Challenge finals in Call of Duty: Mobile and Clash of Clans. The Challenge finals will feature the top four North American teams from the Challenge circuit. Both events will have a $75,000 (~£59,000) prize pool. 

Interestingly this is the first-ever Mobile Challenge finals for Call of Duty: Mobile following its integration into the Snapdragon Pro Series
