Revenant Esports is one of eight organisations taking part in the Skyesports Masters, which will feature a 2 Crore INR (~£195,800) prize pool. As its CS:GO partner, GIGABYTE will provide players with a range of PC parts for their systems.

The franchised Skyesports Masters aims to create a sustainable ecosystem for teams in India and the surrounding region through a range of revenue opportunities that include sponsorships and media rights deals, though some commentators have expressed concern over its scale.

In addition to unveiling GIGABYTE as its new partner, Revenant Esports also unveiled its roster competing in the Skyesports Masters. Alongside CS:GO, Revenant Esports competes in a range of titles including VALORANT, Brawlstars, Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) and Pokemon Unite.

GIGABYTE is no stranger to the esports industry. Its AORUS brand has previously collaborated with Hong Kong-based organisation Talon Esports and its PSG Talon League of Legends team.

The GIGABYTE deal is the first partnership for Revenant Esports since Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff invested in the organisation May 2023.

Rohit Jagasia, Founder and CEO of Revenant Esports, spoke on entering CS:GO and the partnership: “We are really excited to finally pull back the curtains on our CS:GO roster. Counter-Strike has been a revolutionary title for esports and our involvement in India’s biggest gaming tournament, the Skyesports Masters, is a testament to our remarkable growth.

“Additionally, our partnership with GIGABYTE | AORUS for the Skyesports Masters is a testament to the sustainable model that is being built by this league for Indian esports.”
